Summer Camp

Posted on Jun 27 2017 - 10:29pm

Summer Camp  July 9-15

Video

We need adults!

  1. We like to have 10 adults in camp at all times. As you have read in the last camp e-mail,  we are woefully short of this based on the solid information we currently have!

  2. Adults are required to have a doctor-signed BSA medical form (parts ABC) if they are staying in camp for more than 72 hours. If your stay in camp is less than 72 hours then we need only parts A&B (no doctor signature). However, getting an annual physical is a good practice, one that started for me as a scout and has happened almost every year since.

  3. Ideally, adult volunteers should plan on a minimum 24+ hour cycle. Arrive in camp just after dinner and stay through dinner the following day.
    - the Sunday/Monday cycle should be: drive up to camp (we will probably need 8-10 vehicles to get to camp) with the troop and stay through 7PM Monday.

  4. Adults will get more out of their experience by staying two to three days in camp. There are opportunities for training that will be valuable for you and our Scouts throughout the year.

  5. ALL adults coming to camp will be required to take the online Youth Protection training and submit to me a copy of their current training certificate. You take the course by going to www.my.scouting.org, setting up an account (link to Patriots’ Path Council and Troop 150 Sussex if you can, complete the course, save to PDF and print your certificate).

Posted on May 30 2017 - 11:32pm

"I have no illusions about what little I can add now

to the silent testimony of those who gave their

lives willingly for their country… Yet, we must try

to honor them—not for their sakes alone, but for

our own. And if words cannot repay the debt we

owe these men, surely with our actions we must

strive to keep faith with them and with the vision

that led them to battle and to final sacrifice."

Ronald Reagan

Defend Yourself From Lymes Disease

Posted on May 17 2017 - 5:09pm

Deer Ticks Transmit Lyme Disease.

DUE TO THE WARM WINTER, THE TICK POPULATION IS HIGHER THIS YEAR.

Some Symptoms Of This Disease Include:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Site Rash

PREVENTION:

Use Insect repellent that contains DEET.

(OFF spray pictured here contains 25% Deet, the CDC recommends at least 20%)

Wear long pants when in wooded areas.

Check yourself every night for ticks, especially when camping, or if you have been outdoors for an extended period of time.

Help check a friend for ticks, in places where they can not see.

Clothing treated with permethrin will kill ticks.
