Summer Camp 2013
Camp Rainey Mountain: June 23rd - 29th, 2013
Summer Camp means more in a Scout's life than all the meetings in the year put together. The days in camp mean physical fitness, fellowship, and fun. Scouts will have the opportunity to complete requirements for rank advancement, earn merit badges, and participate in several fun troop activities. Click on the links below to get the forms you'll need.
Please fill out the form on page 2 of the Summer Camp Registration Form below and return it with your deposit and/or remaining fee balance. A total of $300 is due May 22nd.
We are signed up for the week of June 23rd - 29th, 2013. We will meet Sunday morning, June 23rd, 2013 at 8:00am in the parking lot of Oak Grove Elementary School (NOT SCOUT HALL). We will check in at camp at 1 p.m. on Sunday, June 23rd, and check out at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 29th. All drivers coming up Saturday morning June 29th are to be there by 8:00am sharp - do not be late! Please do not ask to leave with your Scout early - they will have check-out duties, and we will depart together as a Troop. We anticipate the boys will return to Scout Hall Saturday, around 12:30 - 1:00 p.m.
Camp Rainey Mountain is operated by the Northeast Georgia Council, and is located near Clayton, Georgia, about two hours drive north of Decatur. Click here for a map to get directions.
The summer camp fee is $300.00. This fee covers most expenses, such as food, lodging and a Troop 77 t-shirt, but does not include refreshments, such as snacks, soft drinks, or certain articles and money needed for merit badges, or meals in transit to and from camp. The first payment of $150 is due on or before March 6th. The balance of $150 is due by May 22nd, 2013. You may also opt to pay the full amount when you register. The camp also requires a BSA medical form signed by a physician. Click here for the required Annual Health and Medical Form.
The Troop 77 Summer Camp Committee will be coordinating transportation for all Scouts who sign up for camp. In order to transport the 70 Scouts that normally attend summer camp we need drivers. If you can drive one way or both, please check the appropriate space on the registration form page 2 and/or let the Scoutmaster know.

In addition to the well-qualified camp staff, parent leadership is needed at the Troop campsite. Therefore, we need parent volunteers to make the week successful. You can attend for one day or the entire week. If you can participate in this way, please check the appropriate space on the registration form page 2 and let the Scoutmaster know. If you stay the entire week, the Troop will pay your fees. Less than the full wee, fees are $20 per night. There will be camp wall tents in our site, but you are welcome to bring your own.
