> GETTING ITEMS TO CAMP
> What to store underneath the bus: One duffel bag OR waterproof bin with clothes, insect repellant, gear, etc. NO LARGE FOOT LOCKERS! They really won’t use that much clothing, anyway.
NOTE: In addition to your duffel bag, a large backpack and mosquito frame can go under the bus. Just try to keep things as compact as possible. And a small additional backpack/bag can be carried on the bus.
ALSO NOTE: Cots are provided at camp! DO NOT bring a cot.
> WHAT TO BRING ON THE BUS
> A sack lunch (for trip to camp), full water bottle (only water please, to keep the bus clean), and a copy of their current BSA health form (the troop leader must also bring a copy to camp for troop “check in”).
> OPTIONAL: Small backpack/bag with items to use on the bus – small games, cards, etc.
> LEAVE VALUABLE ITEMS AT HOME!
> BUS SCHEDULE FROM CAMP
> Buses leave camp 9AM-9:30AM, getting to the Neiman Marcus parking lot 2PM-4PM. A sack lunch will be provided. Only those who completed the “Special Diet Request Form” (and returned it to camp staff at least 3 weeks before camp), will be given alternate lunches, if needed.
Those Scouts that will be doing activities with the troop such as day events or weekend camping need to fill out the A and B form. Those Scouts that will be doing extended camping such as Summer Camp need to fill out the A and B form plus the C form, which requires a physical exam. Below are PDF’s that you can save and fill out on you computer with Adobe Reader. This is nice as you do not need to hand right the forms, can be updated easily, and a new copy can be printed when needed.
