Reminders for Summer Camp

  • Mr. Malko and I would like to see all scouts arrive at Ockanickon Scout Reservation by 1:00. This means most families will need to leave their homes between 10:30 and 11:30.
  • The following link may be very helpful to scouts who are still deciding what they will pack for summer camp: http://www.ockanickon.org/summer-camping/program/recommended-packing-list/
  • Scouts need to bring both Class A uniforms and Class B T-shirts. Class A uniforms must have tan or green pants/shorts to go with the uniform shirt. Also, if scouts have merit badge sashes, please bring them.
  • Most prerequisites must be done before camp, excluding the following:
  • Camping merit badge prerequisites 8c and 8d will be completed at camp. Bring a notebook and writing utensils to complete these prerequisites. Additionally, Mr. Lines will be printing out his campout records for scouts to complete prerequisites 9a and 9b.
  • Scouts participating in communications merit badge need to host a campfire ceremony. I will decide Sunday night when scouts will be hosting campfire ceremonies.
  • The name of the campsite Troop 150 will be staying at this year is Seneca.
  • Mr. Malko will have the permission slips for the rafting trip in the parking lot when everyone arrives on Sunday.

Senior Patrol Leader of Troop 150
A few more tips:
  • Directions to Ockanickon can be found on T150F site.
  • Another camp checklist can be found on the T150F site.
  • The Troop will be going on the rafting trip on Friday. The cost is $20 per person and everyone that is going (scouts and adults) needs to complete a waiver form for the rafting company. The waiver form can be found on the Bucks County River Country website, www.rivercountry.net
