Greetings Scouts & Campers,
Prepare for rain next week. Have extra socks in plastic bags. Have good footwear. Sneakers when wet will stay wet and lead to blisters. Think wisely about your choices and prepare for the worst…and hope for the best weather-wise.
This is a new camp for us and we will be sharing with several other troops. Our troop has a camp code of conduct. Basically if you always follow the scout law you will not have a problem at camp or in life for that matter. The code of conduct does have a couple points in that document that is important for you and your parents to read and understand. This is a big camp and we need to follow the buddy system at all times. Next, obey your leaders at all level so that we as a troop can be prepared and counted on for doing our duty to help the camp, be on time for meals, colors, merit badges, events, and keeping our space, troop space and camp in order. Please read this with your parents, sign and have your parents sign.
Please support all requests for camp from Mr. Carter and other leaders. For example, if you are doing welding or blacksmithing, you need proper clothing for camp (non-synthetic). Stand by for instructions from your leaders. Once again, this is a huge job to coordinate with camp. Thank you Mr. Carter for all your hard work and preparation. I know I’m looking forward to camping once again.
Camp is a great time to work on advancements and we will have plenty of opportunities. While I will miss our Camp Cheyenne at TL Storer and all the fun and adventure we had there, I am also looking forward to Hidden Valley and all it has to offer.
See you tomorrow and be prepared for weather and all your activities.
