Summer Camp Updates


I hope everyone has had a wonderful Spring Break and is enjoying the warmer weather. Summer Camp is right around the corner! (July 9-16; Mataguay Scout Ranch, San Diego-Imperial Council)

* For those already signed up for Summer Camp AND making their payments, please note that Payment #3 is due by 3/31/11. ($100) You can pay with cash, check (to Troop 648), or out of your scout account. Please see Mr Benyi, Mr Cole, or Mr Runberg to turn in payments.

* For those signed up for Summer Camp who have NOT begun payments, please speak to us ASAP to discuss getting caught up. I will have to drop anyone who has not started payments by 3/31/11.

* For those who have recently crossed over or have otherwise joined the Troop, welcome to the Troop! Please be aware that it is not too late to sign up for Summer Camp and join us for a fantastic, week-long experience of camping. There is no better formative experience in scouting than your first Summer Camp, so I strongly encourage all to consider attending. Anyone wishing to attend that has not already signed up should email me to do so.

We have an information meeting in April to go over everything you need to know about Summer Camp 2011. We will announce that date in the coming weeks.


1)  Please fill out the attached permission forms and return to Mr. Benyi, Mr. Cole, or Mr. Runberg. (Note: Unless you specifically do not want your son to participate in a particular activity, it is best to fill out all portions of these forms to allow for flexibility at camp.)

2)  Prior to Summer Camp, you must also complete the Annual Health and Medical Report, including doctor’s physical. This form can be found on the Troop website under “documents”. (You only need to fill out Parts A-C, pages 1-4.)

Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions about Summer Camp 2011. It will be an experience to remember!

Mr. Benyi
