Christmas Camp is Here – Important Camp Prep Info

The Troop 701 Annual Christmas Camp is this upcoming weekend, December 8-10! The cost for camp is $25, and sign-ups are due on Troopwebhost by Tuesday. With all of the fun activities that the PLC has planned (including swimming in an indoor pool!), it is VERY IMPORTANT that each scout brings some additional special gear/items to camp:

-Class A Uniform
-One gallon of drinking water to share.
-Two dozen homemade cookies. Please put cookies in a recyclable container – containers will not be returned.
-Swimsuit, towel, goggles (and a plastic bag to put the wet swimsuit and towel in after we are done swimming).
-Christmas decorations and lights for decorating your bunk, and your Patrol Leader! Please don’t bring any tinsel, as it is very difficult to sweep up.
-Candy and supplies for the gingerbread house building competition.
-A gift for the gift exchange. The gift should be valued at $15-20 and needs to be wrapped (but not tagged). Please bring a fun gift that would be appropriate for a 12-year old scout.  The gift should be something your own scout would enjoy receiving!
-Cold-weather clothing and gear. There are a lot of outdoor activities planned for this camp as well, so please bring warm socks, boots, gloves, and a warm hat (a lot of scouts bring a Santa Hat for this camp).
-Your white or green advancement book.

The Camp will be held at Camp Paradise, just south of Medina. There are heated cabins, indoor bathrooms, and a lodge building we will use for the activities, although the patrols will be cooking outside. Christmas Camp is one of the most fun camps of the year, and one where we even have some alumni scouts join us for the weekend, so we hope to see all of you there!
