Summer is approaching and another exciting stay at Camp Horseshoe is upon us!
Once again Troop 78 has reserved the Dan Beard campsite at Camp Horseshoe for two weeks.
We want all scouts to be able to experience summer camp at Horseshoe.
There is a long-standing well-used program in place for scouts who need help paying for camp. Please see Mr. D about this.
Please turn in your completed medical form to the troop.
The health form (found at a link below) must be less than one calendar year old for the entire time you are at camp.
Health form is due May 31st.
At Camp Troop 78 Scouts will learn many skills for rank advancement, earn dozens 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 outdoor skills and 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.

Because the cost to the troop for adult meals has increased significantly in the past few years, we are asking leaders and Dads, who are financially able, to donate toward their meal cost of $30 per day per person, or $200 per week.
