The cost is $5 to help cover the cost of pizza and drinks.
Scouts can bring board games, video games, video game systems (a TV may not be available to play on, so if you want, you can bring your own).
Also, a movie will be shown for those who need a break from the other activities. See you there!
Our Annual Beach Sweep event is right around the corner so please take time to register soon as registration closes after the meeting on August 29th. Please register/pay prior to the last Troop meeting August 29 so we can finalize the transportation.
We won’t be meeting on September 5th because of the Labor Day holiday so be sure to get registered before it closes on the 29th. The Beach Sweep event is on September 9-11, 2016.
The Troop will be camping again at Lakewood Campground in Myrtle Beach. We will camp Friday night, clean the beach Saturday morning and play in the sun Saturday afternoon.
The cost of Beach Sweep is $55.00. This includes camp fees, travel, Saturday Breakfast, Lunch and the Saturday Evening Dinner. Boys WILL need to bring money for supper on the road going down (Friday) and breakfast coming back (Sunday) and for other drinks and goodies they may want to purchase while at the campground.
Departure will be at 5:00pm on Friday, September 9th at Unity Church. We will return to the Scout Hut around 2pm (Scouts will call you when we get close to the Church) Sunday, September 11th, 2016
Just a reminder, that the troop has elected not to meet on August 15th, the first day of school in Fort Mill School District.
Stephen T will be continuing work on his Eagle Project on August 6th and could use your help. Stephen is supervising the installation of a sign and small bridge on the Carolina Thread Trail system across from the Nation Ford High School football stadium.
Stephen asks that you meet in the trail parking lot on A.O. Jones Blvd in Fort Mill at 8am on August 6th. The group will work to 4pm and lunch, snacks and water will be provided. Dress for working in the outdoors.
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.
On August 1st we will hold the “Great Gear Give Away” for boys who meet the following criteria:
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 scouts who 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.
Scouts and adults interested in helping Aidan with his Eagle Scout Project from 9am until 3pm on Sunday, July 17th should meet at the ASC Greenway’s office near the dairy barn.
Participants should wear clothing that they don’t mind getting dirty and probably a hat and/or glasses for the sun.
Be sure to check the FM Troop 108 Facebook page for pictures posted by the adult leaders through out the week at Camp Ho Non Wah
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:
The BSA’s Guide to Safe Scouting has the following regarding medications while on trips:
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.

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