The upcoming campout Oct 20-22 will be at Camp Roosevelt near Woodstown NJ. This is only 30 miles from PCOC. (Presbyterian Church of the Covenant) . We have a tenting campsite near the lake and trails. The focus of the campout will be on Scouts completing rank requirements for Scout/Tenderfoot/Second Class/First Class.
SEE ATTACHED SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES AND THE RANK REQUIREMENTS WE WILL COVER THIS CAMPOUT.
We will need drivers for this short trip on both Friday evening and returning Sunday morning. The weather looks to be good as well. Please see or contact Fred Michels ASM by Tuesday Oct 17.
Scout Actions requested:
- All scouts under First Class should be reviewing their unmet rank requirements, particularly those that can be accomplished on a campout. They should take steps to read the Scout Handbook for those requirements and then volunteer in patrol meetings the next 2 weeks (Oct 10 and 17) for those activities during the campout that will satisfy those requirements. Please note that all Scouts, regardless of Rank, can work on any rank requirements up to and including First Class requirements. They do not have to be completed sequentially by rank. So a boy who has not yet achieved Scout Rank, can work on completing a Second Class requirement, for example, during the campout.
- Scouts First Class and above, this is a great chance to show leadership and help teach / coach and sign off completed requirements for the younger scouts.
- STAR scouts - a requirement for Life rank is to train younger scouts using the EDGE Method. Please look at your requirements in the handbook.
