Summer Camp Updates

Posted on May 17 2017 - 11:09pm

 Congrats Troop 235 Parents and Scouts!

With exactly one month to go, everyone's Summer Camp deposits, co-pays and Merit Badge selections have all been turned in -- likely a new Troop record! Thank you all for that diligent work, but don't relax just yet ---

There's still one more form that Emerald Bay requires each parent to sign (see attached Pre-Camp Permission form). Just print out, sign, and turn in at the next Troop meeting.

And of course, make absolutely sure you get those wonderful mandatory BSA Medical Forms A, B, and C + Insurance Card copy turned in ASAP.

OK, you may now return to shopping for bigger watershoes and swim trunks to replace the current ones that they already outgrew.

Rank Advancement

Posted on May 17 2017 - 11:08pm

Congratulations Scouts! Your hard work was evident at Tuesday's Court of Honor. Please take a moment to review your cards to make sure rank and merit badge dates are correct. If you believe you are missing anything, check that you have submitted the necessary items to me. If there is still a discrepancy upon further inspection, contact me via voice/text or email, or during a Troop meeting. I attend every Tuesday, but am upstairs during the Committee and parent meetings on the first and second week of the month, respectively. -Mrs. Huynh
