Camp Friedlander:

- No changes in merit badges vs. last year are currently shown.  If changes are published I’ll send out an update.  Note that the Voyager program is no longer offered.

- 1st Payment, $65, due on Feb. 2nd.  2nd payment, $75, due on March 30th.  Balance due on May 4th.

Remember that the troop is able to help with the cost of summer camp.  If needed, talk to Dan Weiss, Tom Moore or Dave Hartup.  This information is kept confidential.  Also, this is a good time to schedule a physical for camp as medical forms now must be updated annually.

Again, questions are welcomed.  Contact me via e-mail or at 887-1990.

Adult Volunteers:

- The same BSA medical form is required for you.  Unsigned now, signed by a physician if attending summer camp.
- Youth Protection training is required.  You can complete this online.  You do not have to be a registered volunteer.  This is required if attending camp-outs with the troop.  It will require approx. 30 minutes of your time.  Print-out the completion form and turn-in to the troop.

YIS,
Linda Weiss
