Yawgoog!

It’s time to start getting ready for summer Camp at Yawgoog.  The dates for camp are July 31st  - August 7th .  The cost for camp this year is $430.00 per scout for the week. There is a discount of $40 for each brother attending camp.  A $65.00 deposit along with the registration form for all scouts attending camp is due by the Court of Honor on June 10th .  The camp registration form is attached. Families should fill in the forms for scouts and adults attending camp.  NEW PLEASE NOTE:  Yawgoog will no longer be allowing adults to register for partial weeks.  We can only register adults for a full week.  Scouts may still register for less than a full week if necessary.  Scouts should note on the form which days they will be attending camp. For scouts who are unable to attend the full week of camp, there is a day rate of $65.00 per day. 

 

Current BSA MEDICAL FORMS parts A,B and C (signed and dated by a physician after July 31st, 2015)  are required for all scouts and adults attending camp.  I must receive everyone’s medical forms and final payments NO LATER than on July 15th at the second prep meeting.

 

Please note that If you have submitted parts A and B for previous troop events in the past year you will still need to fill out all 3 parts again which require a doctor’s signature. Please include a copy of both sides of your Medical Insurance card, if available, with your med form.  NO SCOUT WILL BE ALLOWED AT CAMP WITHOUT A CURRENT MED FORM.

 

 As always, families may pay in installments.  If the cost of camp is keeping any scout from attending, please speak to the Scoutmaster.

 

Adult help is always welcome at camp.  Adult cost is determined by the total number of scouts and adults attending.  Adults will be notified of the cost roughly 2 weeks before camp.  We expect the cost for adults to be around  $125 for the week
