Notes by Eric Aune

On Friday at Camp they have a western theme. They encourage everyone to dress in Western type clothes. Cowboy hats, jeans and things like that. If any of the scouts and adults wish to dress that way for Friday at Camp, please be sure they have that stuff packed. Just so you know, I am bringing my western wear.

Make sure that you have the talent releases and permission slips signed.

Be sure to bring a sack lunch for Sunday. We are trying to get up there by 1pm which is the earliest that we can check in. If we get up there a little earlier, then we will pull over somewhere and have lunch before going into camp.

Bring meds in the original container, one of the adult leaders will be in charge of them, except for inhalers and for those who have severe allergies and need to carry an epi pen the scout will carry them.

Bring you spending money in an envelope in $5 amounts. $35 - $40 should be fine plus bring any extra money needed for craft and Merit Badge supplies. The costs are listed in the Summer Camp packet. One of the adults will be the banker and scouts can withdraw money once a day in the morning at camp. The banker will not open and close the bank whenever a scout needs money. So be sure when you withdraw money, that you get the spending money you want for the trading post, and any Merit Badge or Craft supplies you might need for the day.

Be sure that everyone under 1st class brings their handbook with them, but photocopy the pages first in case it gets lost.

Electronics (games, mp3, cells phones, etc) can be brought for the ride up to camp, but they are not allowed in camp. If it is brought into camp, then I will take it away, lock it in my car and return it when we get back to Carmenita next Saturday.

There are some of the boys who enjoy collectable card games (Yu-Gi- Oh, Magic, etc.). I will not tell you that you can't bring them with you, however, if I see anyone playing these games, when they should be doing Merit Badge or Rank Advancement work, I will take them away and return them to you when we get back to Carmenita on Saturday.

Wear your green shirts and swim trunks under you Class A uniform (except Merit Badge sashes), so that we can quickly get ready for the swim check. Also have your towel on top of everything in your bag, so that you can get to it quickly. If you are an OA member, bring your sash for the OA fellowship on Monday evening.

Okay, I think I have covered everything. Any questions either call me or email me back, and I will try to address it.
