Camp Information Night:  late June 11, 2016
We will be collecting:
 
(1) SPENDING MONEY. Spending money should be in a plastic baggie with the scout's name on it. We recommend that the funds be in $5 or $10 bills so it can be gradually handed out during the week. The scout is responsible for all monies once it is turned over to him; he may not return it to the parent in charge. Generally, the scout takes about $80 to camp. The camp has a small store to buy snacks and supplies for the handicraft merit badges.
 
(2) MEDICATIONS. Please put all medications in a plastic baggie with the scout's name on it; make sure to include clear dosing instructions for all medications. One of the parents attending camp will be responsible for all medications.
 
(3) FORMS. The following forms must be turned in:
     - Liability Form to Loanne Cheung
     - two copies of Annual Health & Medical Record to Loanne Cheung
     - Copy of Medical Insurance Card to Loanne Cheung
 
> > > IMPORTANT < < < Scouts will not be allowed to go to camp unless they have turned in all of the above forms by June 21st!
