Camp Raymond Summer Camp

Troop 365 Summer Camp 2016

Saturday, June 25, 2016 - Saturday, July 2, 2016

TO DO LIST:

  • All adults attending summer camp AND youth leaders should download and review the 2016 Camp Raymond Almanac and Guide. This guide contains important information about camp schedules, procedures, awards, etc. There is also a map with directions to camp as well as a camp-wide map to get around on foot. You can also download the Camp Weekly Schedule here.
  • We need parents to donate some baked goods for camp desserts/treats. Scouts love to have goodies from home as desserts each day such as brownies, cookies, etc. Prepare enough for about 50 scouts/adults. Contact Lennie Ambelang if you can help with this so she has an idea of what to expect. You can also contact her with questions about storage, etc.
  • All scouts need to bring their scout handbook for rank advancements as well as merit badge pre-requisite work to show to counselors at camp for credit. Also bring merit badge handbooks - you can contact the troop librarian if you need to borrow a merit badge book. Bring writing utensils as well! Note any pre-requisites that require you to purchase a kit at the trading post to complete (such as for handicraft badges or the pioneering badge/shotgun shells, etc.) and bring enough money. You will receive your blue cards at camp which you MUST HAVE before beginning a merit badge. Depending on the types of merit badges you have signed up for, it can be helpful to bring a small binder/notebook/folder and a drawstring bag/sack to keep all your merit badge information in as you move about camp to the merit badge locations.
  • Have you finished packing yet? Here is the Camper Packing List from the Council Web Site. Do not forget sunscreen, bug spray, and a water bottle/camelpak - there is spring water at the camp site we use to fill from. A cot pad/air pad for the ground is highly recommended for a decent night's sleep at camp. It can get cold at night so bring a sleeping bag with you that keeps you warm - an extra blanket is also always a good idea. Do not forget your Class A Uniform - adults and scouts - this is needed for Boards of Review as well as various campwide events. OA Members should bring their OA Sash too.

DEPARTURE INFORMATION:

  • Please begin arriving at 8 AM for check in! There will be a table set up - as soon as scouts arrive, they need to go line up at the table and check in before doing anything else (loading gear/chatting, etc.) If everyone waits until 8:30 to arrive, we won't be able to leave on time - departure time is 8:30 AM. We expect to return to the parking lot around 2 PM on July 2nd. Parents please be on time in picking up your scout - everyone will be ready to get home! We will call if delayed from the 2 PM time.
  • Everyone should bring money to purchase fast food lunch on both Saturdays plus camp spending money (~$50)  Note that some craft supplies and shotgun shells must be paid for, as well as refreshments and souvenirs. We will have an adult at camp to act as the "bank" and hold money for scouts during the week so they do not spend it all at once.
  • Download directions to Camp Raymond here. We will be stopping in Flagstaff together for lunch. We must check into camp as a group. So stay together on the road and if you arrive at camp earlier, etc. wait at the parking lot for the remaining vehicles before we drive to the campsite. We will be able to drive to the site to unload, but all vehicles will need to be moved to the parking lot by Sunday for the remainder of the week at camp. Adults are to immediately assist with setting up the camp kitchen upon arrival at the campsite - once the kitchen is in order, adults will have time to then set up their individual campsites in the designated geezer area.

October 2016 Rim to Rim Info

Posted by tking on Apr 8 2016 - 9:03am

Mrs. Buchanan has begun to plan for the next Rim to Rim trip scheduled October 8-10, 2016. Unfortunately all the hotels at the South Rim are booked this year already! She has reserved 6 hotel rooms in Tusayan which we have done in the past when this occurs. Because we want to ensure we will have enough rooms, we need to know your intentions to attend Rim to Rim as soon as possible.

As always, we need adults to either hike or be drivers. Drivers will camp at the North Rim with the hikers Saturday and after the hikers depart for the South Rim, drivers will pack up camp and drive all the vehicles to the South Rim and meet the hikers on that end late Sunday. We will either sleep in the hotel at Tusayan or optionally, some can choose to camp at the South Rim Sunday evening.

Sign up online now and indicate in the NOTES if you are:

  • Indicate if hiking/driving (for adults obviously - all scouts are hiking)
  • Vehicle belts INCLUDING DRIVER BELT if driving own vehicle (adults may still volunteer to be a driver and drive someone else's vehicle if we need)
  • Indicate if you want a hotel room or prefer camping at the South Rim Sunday evening (both scouts and adults need to do this)
