“El Dorado” Gold Rush Camp – September 17-19

Our first camp of the Scouting year is “El Dorado” Gold Rush camp, scheduled for the weekend of September 17-19, at Firelands Scout Reservation. We will be using the Stewards shelter and camping in Gilwell Field, which is next to the pond. Our traditional Gold Rush themed camps are always a bunch of fun, are filled with plenty of patrol spirit, and are a great way to start our camping season! The cost for camp is $25, and we are asking that you please sign up on TroopWebHost as soon as you can, as that will help us with our camp planning. Also, if you will be arriving to camp late or leaving early, please share those details in the comment field of your sign-up.

As per our Troop COVID Policy, we ask everyone to please perform some self-screening for illness before leaving for camp, including checking your temperature. If you are not feeling well, please stay home, so that you can get better!

We will be tent camping, so please pack for an early-fall campout. As a reminder, some important gear items each scout needs to bring should include:

-A few masks/face coverings
-Clothing appropriate for the weather forecast
-Any specific patrol gear/clothing (patrol t-shirt, hats, bandanas, etc.)
-Sunscreen and Bug Spray
-A tent
-A ground tarp and pad
-A headlamp or flashlight
-Rain gear
-Camp chair
-Your white or green advancement book (in a ziploc bag)
-A filled water bottle
-Patrol Leaders should bring their patrol flag and nugget container
-LOTS of patrol spirit!

If you have any questions about camp, please reach out and let us know. We hope that all of you will be able to join us!
