Time to Sign Up for Summer Camp @ Camp Geronimo - June 19-26

Posted by rhetrick on Apr 2 2021 - 7:08pm

Right now we have a date for a week at Camp Geronimo -- June 19-26, but we have not made reservations because we don't know who or how many are planning to go.

We need both youth and adults planning to go to sign up on the Troop website.  In your comments let us know which program you are interested in -- Traditional merit badges, Brownsea Island, or Spade Ranch High Advent (for 13-1/2 and up).

We would leave Saturday morning, June 19, and return Saturday afternoon June 26.  We would get to camp a day before programs start and would handle our own food until Sunday evening meal.  We'd find a way to use that time very well.  There are 4 different programs offered, each with different prices, which include our trip fee and food before camp starts.  Some programs may have additional fees, such as ammunition, craft projects,  and horse riding fees.

NOTE:  Camperships (form attached) are still possible and it's possible to pay for a big part of camp by volunteering for the Memorial Day and Flag Day (June 14) fundraisers.  The cost to you (or your family) can be a LOT less than the numbers that you see below.

Merit Badge Program - $400  Traditional Summer Camp Merit Badge opportunities to work on over 30 different merit badges.  Video:

Brownsea Island Program - $400  Ideal for Scouts new to Scouts BSA, with main focus on completing Scout Rank, Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class rank requirements, as well as a good orientation to the way Scouts BSA works.  There is also an opportunity to earn the First Aid and Swimming Merit Badges. Video:

Spade Ranch Adventure - $525  Scouts 13.5+ spend a week on high adventure activities like caving, ATV, canyoneering, mountain biking, and rock climbing.  From Sunday until Friday you will be encamped with others in this program.  (Adults can also do this for $500).  Video:

Adults - $150 for full week, $75 for half.

There will be an opportunity for need-based Grand Canyon Council camperships, for up to 50%.  We'll make the forms available soon.  Presently the Troop Campership fund is fairly low, so it can't be depended on unless we get some donations.  Remember that the first question before awarding camperships is "What have you done to earn at least part of the costs for Summer Camp", so participation in fundraisers such as our Flag program is a good starting place on figuring out how to pay.

To reserve our spots we will need to submit down payments and/or campership applications (attached) and a commitment to the two upcoming fundraisers.  We need this by Monday, April 5.  Please sign up on the web site if interested.  We'll collect payments at the next couple meetings and/or work with you.  Notice that with opportunities to do flags on  Memorial Day May 23, you can earn money that will go a long way toward covering your costs.  Whatever you have earned from Flags between Flag Day 2020 and Flag Day 2020 will be added to your account before camp.

Safety:  For Summer Camp 2020 Camp Geronimo operated very safely with a rigorous set of protocols to make summer camp healthy, and they got through 4 weeks of Summer Camp without a single COVID problem.  Protocols included a lot of health checks - before entering camp and every morning, breaking the camp into smaller groups called cohorts who stuck together instead of mingling with other groups, special dining hall procedures, mask wearing, social distancing, and a lot of disinfecting.  As far as we know they will do this and more in 2021, building on proven best practices.  We will closely monitor this area  and provide updates as we learn more.

Congrats to our newest Eagle Scout - Aiden!
