We will sign you up online. And we’re looking
for an adult leader interested in spending all or part of the week.
We highly recommend Summer Camp to our new Cross Over
Scouts. They always get the best possible camp
price. It’s a great experience, and all of our
previous first years have loved it!
2. Schedule your camp physical and chase the
forms. All Scouts and Leaders staying must have a
physical within 1 year of camp. If your physical will
be over one year old when you’re at camp, then you need a new
one. They’re very strict about this one.

Every summer our Troop takes a special trip to a place we wouldn't be
able to go to during the school year. This year's trip is to
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the site of one of the most famous battles of
the United States Civil War. Our troop will be camping right on
the actual battlefield in an area designated for youth groups like our
own. The sights and history of the Civil War will be all around us
for our four day and three night stay. And there's a ghost walk
in old Gettysburg and a stop at Hershey Park as well!
The file attached has all the details you need to know - what we're
doing, dates, times, what to bring. The last page is the sign-up
page, and it has the directions for signing up and making sure you are
part of the fun on this summer's trip!
$50 deposit per person is due by June 13; fully trip cost is due by July
18. Bring the back page (filled out!) and your deposit to a troop
meeting to either Mr. Leslie or Mr. Miranda. If you prefer, mail
the form and your deposit/payment to Steve Leslie at 61 Lisa Drive in
South Windsor before the deadlines.
