Summer Camp 2014
Woodruff Scout Reservation: July 6th - 12th, 2014
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 $315 is due June 4th.
We are signed up for the week of July 6th - 12th, 2014. We will meet Sunday morning, July 6th, 2014 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, July 6th, and check out at 9 a.m. on Saturday, July 12th. All drivers coming up Saturday morning July 12th are to be there in the lower parking lot by 8:00am sharp - please do not be late! Please do not ask to leave with your Scout early that day - 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.
Woodruff Scout Reservation is operated by the Atlanta Area Council, and is located near Blue Ridge, Georgia, about two and one-half hours drive north of Decatur. Click here for a map to get directions.
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, and/or pull the trailer one or both ways, please check the appropriate space on the registration form page 2..
The summer camp fee for Scouts is $315.00. 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 5th, 2014. The balance of $165 is due by June 4th, 2014. You may also opt to pay the full amount when you register. The camp also requires a BSA medical form signed by a physician (Parts A-C) along with a photocopy of your insurance card. Click here for the required Annual Health and Medical Form.
LEADERS & ADULTS
In addition to the well-qualified camp staff, additional adult leadership is needed at camp. Therefore, we need adult volunteers to make the week successful. You can attend for one day or the entire week (Troop 77 will pay camp fees for all-week volunteers. Partial week volunteers pay $20/day). If you can participate in this way, please check the appropriate space on the registration form page 2 and let the Scoutmaster know. There will be camp wall tents in our site, but you are welcome to bring your own.
