Summer Camp is just around the corner! This is an exciting year for Troop 84, as we will be venturing to a new camp on July 19-25! Camp Friedlander, in the Cincinnati area, is where we are heading, and I can’t wait to get there!
Summer Camp is a highlight for many Scouts, and I hope you will all join us this year. The cost for camp this year is $310, assuming you sign up by March 2nd. This is important for two main reasons. The first is that enables us to better plan for transportation and adult leadership needs. The second reason is Camp Friedlander has a scheduled Merit Badge program.
Once you have registered on our Troop website, https://troop84.com/event/summer-camp-camp-friedlander , and payed either in person or online, you will be eligible to register for Merit Badge classes. The class sizes are limited, so the sooner you sign up and pay, the more likely you are to get into the classes you want. Please visit this page, http://legacy.danbeard.org/pubs/2020_Merit_Badge_Offerings_2_19_20.pdf and start building your schedule! Let us know what that schedule is, as soon as you have it, and we will get you signed up. Merit Badge registration opens March 7th, and all Merit Badge sessions are first come, first served, so don't wait! If you are still working towards First Class, you may want to consider the Trailblazer program http://legacy.danbeard.org/pubs/CF_Trailblazer_Requirements.pdf . First year Scouts are highly encouraged to participate in Trailblazer.
This is a new adventure for all of us, so if you have questions, please ask.
