Two pre-camp planning meetings are scheduled for your troop leadership to meet with key members of the camp staff and develop a program that meets your needs. Your Camp Scoutmaster and Senior Patrol Leader are urged to attend one of these meetings. You will also be given information regarding camp policies and medical form and related health information as well as procedures for your Sunday arrival and check-in. A visit to your campsite is possible with a Camp Commissioner.
Meetings are scheduled for Saturday, May 3, and Saturday, May 17. Each event begins at 1:30 and takes place in the Camp Workcoeman Dining Hall. Please verify your troop’s attendance at either meeting by emailing Lou Seiser at [email protected].
