Bartle Summer Camp 2017
We are camping Session 3 (June 25 – July 4) at camp Sawmill, campsite Sycamore. Important dates during camp:
June 28th Call Night
June 30 Warrior Ceremony
July 1 Honorary Call
July 2 Brave & Honorary Ceremony
July 2 Visitors Day.
Please visit the SignUpGenius page and indicate Yes or No on your plans for the coming camping session. While we hope EVERYONE is able to attend, and once again wander the hills of our beloved reservation, I need you to formally indicate Yes or No before April 15th. At that time we will add the Bartle fee to your scout statement. You can always pay ahead of time if you want to start making payments now. Remember that you are expected to have a zero balance on your scout account prior to leaving for camp on 6/25/17.
Bartle fees for the coming year are $330 – first year scouts may be slightly higher to pay for merit badge supplies.
I have attached Campership Request (due to council by March 3rd) for those in need of financial assistance. Remember we don’t want any scout to miss camp due to financial hardship. Please request a campership from the council and then after they have processed your request we can ask Friends of Troop 257 for additional help if it is still needed.
I have attached a current Health Form (2014 printing). All three sections A, B, and C must be completed. Physical’s are valid for one year. Please note there is some confusion if the physical must have been done after June 25th 2016 (one year prior to the start of this year’s camp) or after July 4th 2016 (one year from the end of this year’s camp). If you are trying to use a physical dated around this time-frame, I suggest you get written authorization from someone at the council office that it will be accepted as still being valid. Otherwise it may be denied at camp and your son will be billed for a camp doctor to conduct a physical.
