Tuesday, May 15

Regular Meeting.
Planning (menu, duties) for this weekend's camping trip to Oconee State Park. Cost $25 per person (camping fees, food). Permission Form is attached.
If you have choices for Summer Camp Schedule please bring....slots are filling up and you may not get the classes you want. I am attaching list with costs if you want to look at them before Tuesday.
Also, if you have any camp card money or payments for Camp Old Indian, I need them this week. Summer Camp needs to be paid in full by Friday to avoid an extra $30 late fee per person. Regular amount is $285 plus any extra fees for classes, activities you are planning. Each camp card sold gives scouts $2 towards camp plus a portion of donations taken in. Anything you can give towards camp will help avoid the late fee, even if you can't pay it all right now, pay what you can.
Coming soon: Tuesday, May 29, we will forgo the meeting and those needing camp physicals will meet at the First Presbyterian Church gym on West Whitner street. Troop 215 has graciously invited us to participate with them in getting FREE physicals that night. You will need an updated medical form to take in and the physician will sign off after doing initial tests. This is a great opportunity! So please be prepared to do this on May 29!
