It was a  very tiring session due to the heat. Most of the boys always seem to have lots of energy even when the scoutmasters have worn out.  See Day 9…..the 9th Day, but even some of the boys were tired.

A form may be completed on-line and then printed for signatures, at the following link:

BSA medical form

Please note that Part C – Physicians section, is only valid for 1 year.  So to be used at Bartle, it cannot have been signed prior to July 27, 2015 – i.e. one year from the last day of the current year’s camping session.

Adults not sure if you will be attending a campout are encouraged to go ahead and fill out a medical form now, so that we have a copy in our files if you later decide to attend an event.  Without a properly completed form you will not be able to attend a troop campout or Bartle.

Bartle attendees in need of financial help.

The troop never wants a boy to miss camp because of family financial constraints.  We will do what we can to help ensure your son can attend summer camp at Bartle.  Before asking the troop for help, we would first like you to apply for assistance from the council.  The 2016 Campership form is posted for download.  They wanted this returned by March 4th.  That is not a hard-and-fast deadline, but it does mean they have started making awards and their funds may run out. If you feel that you may need some help paying for camp, please complete this document and return it to Drew’s attention as soon as possible.  Drew will need to complete the leaders section and return it to the council office asap.
