All changes discussed last night have been made and approved. The only scout who has additional prerequisites is T L. I have attached an updated list of prerequisites to reflect that. Any questions, please do not hesitate to call me on 732-995-6858.

Summer Camp

posted Jul 15, 2019, 1:57 PM by Alex Karn

Camp runs Sunday, July 21 until Saturday 27. Also don't forget your Class A, we wear Class A's for retreat and dinner every night. Lunch on Sunday is not provided, so plan on eating before you arrive at camp. Breakfast on Saturday is provided. 

Summer Camp

posted Jul 13, 2019, 1:11 PM by Alex Karn

We will be meeting at the camp parking lot to load gear into the trailer to be taken into the site. Please plan on arriving to the parking lot no later than 1:00PM. The Scouts will go to the site for check-in, and Mr. Karn will bring the trailer down to the site.

As mentioned, we will be sharing our site with another troop. Mr. Karn has been in touch with their coordinator, and they have requested the use of one lean-to and six tents. That leaves us with two lean-tos and eight tents. We will also bring troop tents to be used if needed as changing tents and/or storing gear. It is strongly recommended that you bring a bedroll, pad, inflatable, or some cardboard for under your sleeping bag in the lean-to.

Summer Camp Merit Badges

posted Jul 12, 2019, 2:17 PM by Jim Stringer   [ updated Jul 12, 2019, 2:21 PM ]

The attached file (T150 Prerequisites) has the merit badges that each scout - using initials - is taking and includes the prerequisites and notes (from Ockanickon). The prerequisites are expected to be completed before going to camp. Please pay careful attention as not doing the prerequisites will result in your son getting a partial (which means that the work that they will do will be recorded, but they will not receive the merit badge).

I have also gone through all of the prerequisites and pulled the text for each of the requirements from meritbadge.org. That info is contained in the 2019 Prerequisites file.

If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to call me on 732-995-6858.

Class B shirts/Summer Camp

posted Jul 9, 2019, 6:00 PM by Alex Karn

Class B shirts are in. Mr. Karn will be at the Firehouse on Thursday 7/11 between 7PM and 8PM if you want to pick them up. Shirts will also be brought to camp, and will be available to those going on the Merit Badge field trip on 7/18.

Mr. Karn will also be accepting Medical Forms, payments, and will be available to answer any last-minute summer camp questions.

Summer Camp Campsite and Medical Forms

posted Jul 8, 2019, 2:38 PM by Alex Karn

We have been assigned the Algonquin campsite this year, and we will be sharing it with another troop. 

There are still some Scouts who have not handed in their medical forms. If you show up at camp without your medical form, there is nothing we can do to help you. Also, Ockanickon does not return medical forms, so if you choose to go this route, make sure you make a copy.
