Summer Camp Paperwork

Any Boy Scout who is attending Summer Camp. In some of the merit badge classes the camp has to offer there is some work that might need to be completed beforehand. For example I am taking the Environmental Science class which requires me to do question 3E and 3C3 before camp. I suggest to any Scout to check if any of your classes require work beforehand.

Summer Camp Paperwork

Any Boy Scout who is attending the 2017 summer camp. Next weeks meeting, May 22nd, the second half of the fees, 140 dollars, will be due in order to attend. Also the health forms must be returned no later  than the day troop 165 leaves for summer camp.

Meeting 5/15

Tonight troop 165 had a special guest. His name is Dr. Kapetansky. Dr. Kapentasky came tonight and last week’s meeting to teach us about first aid. He mainly focused on how to help ‘hurry’ cases if any of use find ourselves in one of those situations. Troop 165 would like to thank Dr.Kapetansky for giving up his time to come and teach us.
