Discussion Items and Other Business:

  • Summer Camp Waiting List- A discussion was brought to the committee regarding an unexpected freeze on summer camp attendance, where a waiting list was put together until Camp Emerald Bay worked out a way to accommodate all scouts interested in attending. Thank you all for your patience and support during these couple days. I am so very thankful that Camp Emerald Bay was able to make room for Troop 693 scouts. However, some parents were very disappointed about this incident and brought up concerns in a not so appropriate manner, which hurt my feelings to a point that I did not want to volunteer my time anymore. The committee chair, and members of the committee will be sending out an email regarding this incident, along with guidelines to handling conflicting concerns in a respectful,courteous manner. We are all volunteers helping in organizing these outing so that our scouts are given the opportunity to learn and participate in various activities throughout their scouting years.

We will continue the following at our next committee meeting:
