Surpise! Camp Raymond 2019 Changed to Camp Geronimo 2019!!

Posted by rjhetrickjr on Apr 24 2019 - 3:46pm


Due to a big drop in Summer Camp Registrations, the Grand Canyon Council has decided tro have Summer Camp ONLY at Camp Geronimo this summer.  We will move from Session 4 at Camp Raymond to Session 4 at Camp Geronimo, with the only time change being that we will almost surely start Saturday, June 22.  The other two messages about signing up/paying costs and merit badge signup will be changed as soon as we learn a few more things.  If you want to hear it as they have announced it, go to https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/3ba018_07f58a2f4539460fa388edeea9f36de0.pdf

It's Time to Sign Up for Summer Camp at Camp Raymond! June 23-29

Posted by rjhetrickjr on Apr 10 2019 - 2:11pm

One of the biggest events in our Troop Year every year is Summer Camp.  This year we will be going to Camp Raymond, leaving on Sunday June 23 and returning Saturday June 29.  We know from experience that this is a huge part fo the Scouting experience, and we often hear from young Scouts that this week is their favorite Scouting event of all!

We camp as patrols and as a Troop, and do a mix of hikes, merit badges, and much more.

Here are some basic facts:

  • Costs:  $350 for camp fees, food and transportation  Adults: $125 
  • Payment schedule:  $90 payments due by March 3, March 31, and April 28 meetings, with balance at June 3 meeting.  See Chris Oless to make payments .  Let him know that you plan to go to camp.  You can sign up right here on the website!
  • Unit Accounts: and Flag Service:  You can use funds in unit accounts to make payments at any time.  Funds earned for flag service in the 2018-2019 season through the Memorial Day 2016 flag service and will be calculated after that event and available to apply as part of the last payment.
  • Camperships:  Both the Grand Canyon Council and Troop 365 offer camperships to help with fees for those in need .  A form can be found on our website.  It needs to be in Ms. Buchanan’s hands ASAP, as the Council  started awarding camperships early in April!  he application is attached to this message.
  • Other costs:  Buy fast food lunch on both travel days plus camp spending money (~$50)  Note that some craft supplies and shotgun shells must be  paid for, as well as refreshments and souvenirs
  • Also see:  a separate announcement about slecting your merit badges.


Summer Camp at Camp Raymond: Select the merit badges that you want by April 15!

Posted by rjhetrickjr on Apr 10 2019 - 12:28am

Part of getting prepared for Camp Raymond is building your Merit Badge schedule!  Attached to this announcement is  a 2 page document.  One page shows which merit badges are offered in each time slot, and the other is a schedule that you can fill in with your first and second merit badges for each tme slot.  Please print a copy of the schedule, fill it out, and give it to Mr. Hetrick at the next meeting or scan it and email it to me.  Starting Monday night 4/15 we can start reserving your merit badge slots.  Below are a few things to think about:

  1. Scouts that are on the early part of the Trail to Eagle -- especially working on Scout, Tenderfoot, or Second Class -- may want to consider signing up for the Brownsea Island Adventure (BSI).  Also known as Trail to First Class, BSI scouts can complete many requirements for Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class ranks.  That will fill up the morning, and you'll also get a chance to earn the Scouting Heritage Merit Badge and get recognized at the closing campfire.  You can then sign up for one or two badges in the 2-4 PM range and just mark "BSI" for the morning time slots.  It's a great way to kickstart your Trail to Eagle!
  2. Note that some badges meet for two hours at a time.Cooking, Climbing, Shotgun, and Rifle are examples.Note that the Fishing / Fish and Wlldlife / Fly Fishing combo takes up 2 periods but leads to 3 merit badges!
  3. Note that some badges -- such as Emergency Preparedness and LifeSaving -- require you to already have another badge first -- First Aid for Emergency Prep and Swimming for Lifesaving.
  4. Some are for older boys - generally 14 and up -- specifically shotgun shooting, fly fishing, and metal working -- for safety reasons.
  5. A number of them will have prerequisites - part of the requirements that you need to do before getting to camp if you wnat to finish.  The list of prerequisites is also attached here.

Questions?  Just drop a line to Mr. Hetrick at rjhetrick@gmail.com!
