Summer Camp - Aug. 9-15

Well HELLO CAMPERS!! Yes, it is that time again. Time to start thinking about Boy Scout Summer Camp! Once again, Troop 1 Katonah will be enjoying an exciting week (Aug. 9-15) at Camp Buckskin, at the Curtis S. Read Scout reservation in the Adirondacks. Just a few reminders:
  • -We will be leaving KES at 8:30 on Sunday, August 9 and returning approximately 2pm on Saturday, August 15.
  • -We have 15 boys going and 6 fathers!. But if anyone knows of anyone else who would like to go, please let me know. There is still time to register.
  • -PLEASE RE READ the SUMMER CAMP PARENT'S GUIDE!! VERY IMPORTANT. MUCH INFORMATION TO KNOW BEFORE DEPARTURE.
  • -Medical forms are not a last-minute thing since they are so complicated this year - Doctors won't like them. When you have them, please keep them and give them to me when we leave.
  • -Parents, please also sign the "out of camp" permission forms just in case we decide to do an out of camp activity.
  • -Some activities we will do this year are "Low or High COPE" depending on age group, the Wabeeka Caves, Zip Line, Troop Shoot, and a HIKE / Sleepover on Mt. Stevens.

If anyone has any questions, please give me a call at (917)939-5416. Have a great summer and see you soon!
