Summer Camp Details

Posted on Feb 28 2024 - 9:52pm
Summer Camp will be here before you know it!
We’re going to Summer Camp at JNW for week #2, which is Sunday June 30 - Friday July 5.    There’s lots of good information at that link.
The Council early bird price is $525 until Wednesday April 26.    That gives our Troop enough time to register with Council before the cut off.     After that, the price goes up to $560.       More info about how they’re keeping the price down, Encore weeks, Councilor in Training, and Camperships can be found here.
You can pay through our Website, or make a check payable to Troop 186, and we’ll register everyone through Council.
Make sure Scouts and Adults get their Dr appointment within one year of camp and have the Drs office fill out their part of the health form.    We’ll be collecting Health Forms,  and Merit Badge selections and other special selections between now and camp.
 We’ll fill in the important dates as we get closer:
  • 04/26  Wednesday - Early Bird $525 due to Troop 186.
  • TBA   Medical forms due.
  • TBA   Merit Badge selections and other selection due.
  • TBA   Pre-Camp parent meeting during one of our Troop meetings for Q&A.
  • TBA   Pre-Camp  meeting at camp to drop off medical forms and select program elements.
