Meeting this Week

The first meeting in our our summer schedule will be this Wednesady June 14th. This will be our last meeting before summer camp, so we will be making sure everything is in order and all questions about camp are answered then. If you haven’t already done so, please reivew the Summer Camp Info linked below.

Summer Camp

All Scouts will need to have an updated BSA Medform Part C which requires a physical in order to attend summer camp. If your Scout has not had a physical since last year’s summer camp, please make plans ASAP to get this done. Many urgent care clinics as well as CVS or Wallgreens Clinics will provide these. You can find the current med form at: https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf

Visit the Troop 77/177 Summer Camp webpage for key dates and news regarding camp. Several important updates were added on 05/16. If you haven’t checked in recently, please do so.  

Also, check out the Troop 177 Summer Camp Gear Guide for tips on gearing up for Summer Camp.
