1st Summer Camp Payment Reminder & Other Dates


Summer Camp – First Payment Due February 23rd
The highlight of the scouting year is our week at summer camp. Every year Troop 701 attends a week long camp at Heritage Scout Reservation. The tentative cost to attend summer camp at Heritage Reservation is $385.00 plus the cost of the charter bus which is divided equally amongst all scouts attending summer camp. The total cost is split into three separate payments. Due to uncontrollable costs associated with summer camp, the Scoutmaster reserves the right to increase the overall cost as needed. An initial deposit for summer camp of $150.00 is required to reserve a Scout’s slot and will be due 2/23/16. The second payment of $150.00 is due on 3/22/16. The third and final summer camp payment will be due 5/17/16, final amount to be determined. In the spring (date to be determined) we will hold our semi-annual Easter Seal’s Clothing Drive. Troop 701 receives $0.20 per pound of clothing, shoes and linens donated. Half of the proceeds earned from this fundraiser will go directly to payment for the summer camp chartered bus. The Troop will contribute $0.10 per pound of clothing, shoes and linens donated by your family and friends to your individual scout account. This is a great way to help pay for camp and do spring cleaning!
