Hello everyone, here is the update for 6/8/2015
FARM FAIR SIGNUPS!
We need everyone to help out with Farm Fair!! Its a “Wicked Good Time.” Last year, the Farm Fair helped fund our new trailer as well as many of the activities we do on a monthly basis. Please start signing up with your availability. Sign up sheets will be available tomorrow evening.
LAST NIGHT FOR JUNE CANOE TRIP SIGNUP!!!!
Our next outing is a canoe trip on the Delaware River on the weekend of June 19-21. Tomorrow is the last night to sign up!
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the logistical requirements of this trip (canoe rental, campsites, seatbelts etc…), we are limiting the total number of scouts and adults to a maximum of 40 — so sign up early if you wish to go! Also, you MUST have passed the BSA swimmer test in the last 12 months in order to attend (both adult and youth must pass). You may find additional information on the swim test below in case you missed our annual troop test. Again, due to the logistics of this trip, the last night to sign up will be June 9th. Absolutely NO signups will be permitted beyond that date — no exceptions.
This is tent camping and is a great adventure on the river. Please try to come on the trip, it is always one of our best times.

SUMMER CAMP FOOT LOCKERS
If your scout is in need of an inexpensive foot locker for summer camp, we are taking signups to purchase inexpensive plastic foot lockers on base. The cost is around $20 and the signup will be available tomorrow.
SUMMER CAMP MEDICALS
Now is the time to get your BSA medicals done for summer camp. If your scout has an annual physical with his doctor coming up, please remember to take a copy of the BSA medical form. For summer camp we need Part A, B, and C. We also need a copy of his immunizations and a copy of his insurance card. You can download the form here: http://www.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_ABC.pdf
SUMMER CAMP UPDATE
Merit Badge selections have been made and registered! A special thanks to Todd McPeak for getting them into the computer while we were at the Camporee! If you have any questions about what merit badges you have signed up for, please see Mr. McPeak. T-Shirt Sizes are due ASAP! We need to be able to order shirts as soon as possible. Please let Mrs. Zoccali-Nagler know.
For those that still need paperwork,
- Download all the forms here: http://troop-36.org/resources/summer-camp-forms/
- I need everyone to fill out the permission slip, camp code of conduct, and BSA medical forms. See above for information on the medical forms.
- Finally, if your scout has any special dietary needs please download and fill out the form and turn it in as well.
If you have any other questions, please shoot me an email.
SWIM TEST MAKEUP
Anyone needing to schedule a swim test, please email Barbara Long at the BCC pool to make arrangements. Download the swim form and take with you. Her email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
You may download the paperwork here: http://www.scouting.org/filestore/outdoor%20program/aquatics/pdf/430-122.pdf
I’m not sure what she charges for individual tests — I suspect its around $5. If you cannot get the test prior to summer camp, don’t worry. You may take the test when we arrive (it just saves time if you take it ahead of time). The swim test is REQUIRED for our canoe trip next month, however.
That’s it for now, see you tomorrow!
