Summer Camp Info

Posted on Jun 17 2018 - 1:17am

Hello Summer Camp Wolfeboro families,

I am Dave Robb and I will be leading Summer Camp Wolfeboro for Troop 224 this year along with John Faber and Tim Hird.  We have 17 scouts and 8 adults attending camp this summer and we are going to have a great time in the southern Sierras just below Bear Valley ski resort up Hwy 4!  Look at summer camp as three steps:  1) Pay for camp  ( 100% done and registration is closed).  2) send in all of the merit badge/ rank advancement classes your scout will be taking at camp  3) The everything else/ work out all the details bucket.

Step 2 – send me all your scouts classes and times.

The attached 12 page pdf is everything you and your scout need to figure out what Rank advancement and merit badge classes he will be taking.

Page 1  0 - the daily schedule.  You will see there are six 1 hour blocks of time for your scout to choose up to six classes at camp.  You and your scout should use this chart to figure out your scouts daily schedule.  Please email me the courses and times your scout decides to sign up for and I will enter all the information into the Wolfeboro system and confirm they are signed up.  The deadline for turning in classes to me is May 31, 2018.

Page 2 – IMPORTANT – All new scouts need to sign up for rank advancement.  The chart calls this “Trailhead” and it is known as “ the fast track to First Class” – You will see at the 10-11AM and the 3-4PM slots under trailhead “tenderfoot to 2nd class.  Make sure your scout signs up for one of these 2 classes to work on his Tenderfoot rank.  He can also take the “2nd class to 1st class or the “tenderfoot to 1st class” courses.  Older scouts should also sign up for at least one rank advancement class if they need to work on rank advancement.   All scouts can work on any of the 3 categories, tenderfoot, 2nd class and 1st class at the same time.  It is not necessary to complete one to be working on the others.  Camp Wolfeboro recommends your scout sign up for Two of these trailhead classes to advance quickly.

Page 3 -  Money – This is a list of all of the merit badges that require an additional $10-$25 for supplies.  If your scout signs up for one of these classes, please make sure he brings the extra money for the class ( to be turned in at class).  In addition to these expenses, Wolfeboro recommends you send your scout to camp with $100 in spending money.  He might not spend it all, but good to have.  They also don’t want large bills so lots of $10s, $5s and $1s.  One of the adult leaders can hold $ for your scout if necessary.

Page 3,4 is a list of all merit badges offered at camp and pages 6-12 is a broader definition of all those merit badges.

Please email me your scouts classes as soon as you can.  I will be sending a second email next with notes from the leader meeting for camp.  Here’s to having a great adventure at Camp Wolfeboro with troop 224!

YiS,  Dave Robb

Alaska Trip - Important Information

Posted on May 27 2018 - 12:08am

Proposed Date; 6/9/2019-6/19/2019

I have attached proposed itinerary as well as trip guideline from Midnight sun council. 

Proposed itinerary plan: 

Depart: SFO/OAK to Fairbanks 6/9/2019 (Depend on time and flight fee)

Return : Anchorage to OAK/SFO  6/19/2019

Flight will likely layover in Seattle.   However, if we have layover in Canada,  You all will need to have a passport ready.

 Who qualifies for this trip;

  Troop 224 handbook Pg 48: junior in high school with life scout rank at the time of trip. 

Participation Fees; Full payment due at the sign up for scouts with no refund if anyone drop out(unless you find replacement). First 18 people (first come first serve basis), after first 18, you will be on standby. If we have too many interested party, priority will be given to scouts. 4 ULs are required to go to make this trip possible.

Adult interested in the party; Please send me email and let me know. I will ask upfront payment as soon as I sort out the numbers of scouts who is interested in going. 

Northern lights council will charge by block of participant instead of per person so we would like to take advantage of the best deal by making full crew instead of missing one or two spots which participants end up paying more.

Sign up dealine; 5/31/2018

Below fee include full excursion and flight.

Adult: $3500

Scout: $1500

Leading ULs; This will cover 4ULs and 1 Backup UL basic fees for the trip. This means if excursion fee comes out more than planned, each UL will pay for that price to give the most benefits to participating senior scouts. Excursion may change depend on accessibility and availability. The excursion fee is not final until April 2019 per Alaskan Council. ULs' non refundable deposit at the time sign up: $200

Please send me the copy of payment receipts to save my communication with treasurer. 

### Midnight council trip is based on 7days. Our troop trip is 10 days!

Any questions or missing information: Please send me email!

YIS, Sue
