Summer Camp Plans
2020 Summer Camp - Virtual Summer Camp
Sorry folks but we do not seem to be fated to get to camp this summer. After changing our plans three times it seems that the virus has finally beaten us. Consequently we will not be attending any summer camp this year. I know that we are all disappointed that this is the final result but health and safely are paramount.
So, what is a scout supposed to do with in person summer camp cancelled? Well he could choose to look on the bright side and use this disappointment as a chance to try a summer camp our troop might never consider! The list below provides links to council summer camp programs that will be held virtually this summer. Think about the opportunity to attend a camp in Colorado or Texas and see how other camps are run. Many of these programs offer scouts 'brag' goods - ie patches, t-shirts, hats, etc so scouts can let their friends know they did something special!
I would encourage the scouts of Troop 29 to review the list of summer camp opportunities here and register NOW! Given the broad selection the troop will not be coordinating this effort but this leaves each scout with a full set of choices on where to go and what they want to do.
Import Note: I am asking that any scout planning to 'attend' one of these camps and to take Merit Badge classes follow the rules below:
- No more than 2 Eagle Required Badges suggested
- Please let Mr. McNamara know what badges you plan to take so we can track advancement and he can help you make good choices.
- YOU are responsible for getting confirmation or completion information of the MB from the camp you attend
