SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION IS NOW UNDERWAY!
Winter has ended and summer camp registration is underway!
As of now, Summer Camp is still scheduled as planned. However, due to COVID-19 and given that all BSA and Troop activities are cancelled through April, Council has announced an extension of the discounted rate Final Payment due date by 30 days. Therefore, registration and the final discounted payment due date for Summer Camp is being extended from March 27, 2020 to May 1, 2020.
The cost this year is $420.00 per week if paid in full by May 1st ($475 per week after March 27th).
Please include final payment slip with payment (Final Payment Form is available on the Troop website).
Do not forget about the Multi-Scout Family Discount. Families with more than one scout attending camp with the troop pays the entire fee for Scout one; the entire fee less $50/week for each additional scout per week.
Health/Medical forms are due May 15th. The health/medical form is on the troop website, Section C must be signed by a physician and must be less than one calendar year old for the entire time you are at camp.

You will receive a free troop T-shirt if you pay in full by May 1st and turn in your completed medical form to the troop by May 15th.
Troop 78 Scouts learn many skills for rank advancement, hundreds of merit badges, and display their teamwork, skills, and Scout spirit in the many games and contests at camp. The basis for our Scouting program is camping, and this two-week period is always the highlight of our Scouting year.
Your troop committee and leadership would like to have 100% of the troop in camp this summer. We are encouraging 2nd year and up campers to stay for two weeks.
Reminder: All KISC attendees under 18 must attend at least one-week of summer camp.
