Upcoming Meeting Information

We’ll have both a regular meeting and a Patrol Leaders Council on July 25th @ 7pm.  We’ll use this time to plan upcoming meetings and to make sure that we’ve correctly documented work completed by our scouts while at Summer Camp.

 

Great Gear Give Away

On August 1st we will hold the “Great Gear Give Away” for boys who meet the following criteria:

  1. Current member of Troop 108
  2. Paid Up – No money owed to the troop
  3. Present at the time of the event

The troop has acquired a bunch of gear – some new and some used – that we simply don’t have room to store.  We’re going to issue tickets to those meet the criteria above and will hold a random drawing to determine who will win what item.  We have sleeping bags, backpacks with frames and so much more.  Once a scout wins an item, he is free to do with it as he wishes (trade, sell, give away) as long as it leaves the premises at the end of the night.  More Info to follow.

Medical Forms & Medications Requirements For Summer Camp

Medications For Camp

BSA - Pill Bottles

We will have a special table set up at our departure point on Sunday, July 10th to handle the turn in of medications that will be needed by our scouts during our week at camp.  We ask that parents abide by the following guidelines when preparing their scout’s medications for camp:

  • Place all medications in a zip-lock type plastic bag with the scout’s name on it.
  • Keep the medications in the original prescription bottle/container
  • Include a filled out copy of the BSA’s Routine Drug Administration Record (click here for a copy)

The BSA’s Guide to Safe Scouting has the following regarding medications while on trips:

BSA Medical Forms

BSA - Medical Forms

Scouts and scouters without a complete BSA Annual Health and Medical Record (Parts A, B and C) will not be allowed to participate in summer camp activities with the Troop.  Scouts that show up at departure without a complete and approved medical form (or don’t have a current completed form on file with the troop) will be denied travel with the troop to attend camp.  Parents may take the scout to get a physical completed and documented on the BSA form (available for download below) and may then bring the scout and completed form to camp to complete the duration of the week.  This is BSA policy and the troop cannot make changes to it.  The BSA Annual Health and Medical Record can be downloaded HERE.

Summer Camp – Departure, Arrival and Other Very Important Information

Departure & Arrival

Scouts should arrive at the Bi-Lo parking lot (Hwy 160 W @ Munn Road in Fort Mill) on Sunday on July 10th no later than 11am. They should be in full uniform (we always travel in full uniform) and bring $5 for bottled water to be purchased while at camp and $10 to help cover the cost of transportation ($15 total). They should bring their medications to the med station that will be set up and also be prepared to provide the combination/or extra keys to their footlocker’s lock.

We will plan to stop and grab a quick bite on the way to AND from camp, so be sure to save extra money for that.
Scouts will return to the same location for pick-up on Saturday, July 16th around 1pm to 2pm and will have your scouts call when we are about 30 minutes away.

Visitors

Families and friends are encouraged to attend the special family night campfire held  Thursday evening. Units begin to prepare for the campfire at 7:00 pm.  Those planning to attend should arrive in camp prior to that time but not before 4:30pm.

If visiting, please observe the camp speed limit.. NO MEALS WILL BE OFFERED TO VISITORS, so please be sure to eat before you arrive at camp or you may bring a meal to enjoy with your scout.

Mail and Phone

You are encouraged to send mail (with a few extra dollars if you desire) to the following address (substituting your scout’s name in the second line below):

Camp Ho Non Wah
c/o “your scout’s name”, Troop 108
2609 Boy Scout Road
Wadmalaw Island, SC 29487

Keep in mind that there may be two to three days before it reaches camp, so time your letters for arrival while we’re still at summer camp.

Emergency Contact

The emergency phone number for the cam camp is (843) 559‐9302.

Keeping Up With The Fun At Summer Camp

We will be posting pictures galore on the Troop 108 FaceBook page all week long.  This will help parents see the fun and and excitement that their scout is having at summer camp.

Cell Phones & Home Sickness

Normally scouts would not have access to a phone during camp, but because our cell phones today are like a multi-tool which includes a camera, we are going to allow scouts to keep their phones while at camp – as long as they do not become a problem.

Cell phones give a homesick scout (or leader) easy access to call home to try to arrange an early departure from camp.  We encourage parents (and spouses of leaders) not to give in to pleas to be able to end their summer camp adventure early.

Lending Money

Scouts should know that the rule in Troop 108 is that if you lend someone money that you have actually given them money with no expectation of being paid back.  Leaders will not act as referee between scouts who have borrowed/loaned money.

What to Pack

Be sure to see our “what to pack” list which can be found by clicking this link  —>  Packing List for Summer Camp
There may be other things not found on the list that your scout may want/need to bring as well.
