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

Posted by rhetrick on Feb 27 2021 - 8:30pm

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.

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:

Fish Camp - $400  Scouts aged 13+ spend a week with Certified Anglers and Trout Unlimited experts mastering the art of fishing.  From Sunday to Friday you will be actually at Camp R-C for this program, which provides better access to the creeks and lakes where you will get to do a lot of fishing.  NOTE that Fish Camp is open for only sessions 1-3 starting May 30, June 6, or June 13, so if interested you will have to go as a Lone Scout (or Scouts) separate from the Troop.  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 $125 per Scout for Merit Badge or Brownsea, $200 each for Spade Ranch and $40 per adult.  We need this by Monday, February 22.  Please sign up on the web site if interested.  We'll collect payments on March a and March 8.  We can accept cash, check, or use of your unit Scouting account.  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 Presidents Day 2020 will also 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.

Klondike Derby -- March 13-15

Posted by drideout on Jan 26 2021 - 8:29pm






Join us in the woods north of Flagstaff for an adventure in the snow! The troop will be doing a Klondike Derby testing your North Woods skills at 5 towns along the Klondike sled Trail. Be prepared for cold weather and snow! (On one outing we had 24 inches of snow on Saturday night) We will be camping near the Upson’s Cabin and if we are snowed in Brent has a snow cat to plow the road. This has always been a fun trip in the past! You will have the opportunity to earn Gold Nuggets along the trail and then trade them in at the Upson‘s Hudson Bay trading Company. If there is enough snow scouts can build a Quincey and perhaps camp in it.

Important: Bring a zero degree sleeping bag (or two 20 degree bags), sleeping pad and snow boots.
