From Mr. Deuger:
Now that the new years has passed and the cold winter wind blows we all look to the warmer days of summer and our best outing of the year, summer camp. Troop 511 has two different excursions to choose from this year. Mr. Rector is planning a high adventure trip to Pipsico in Virginia the week of July 5 to 11, he will be advising the troop on that trip soon. This year the troop is going to Camp Ho Non Wah for our regular summer camp the week of June 28 to July 4. Camp Ho Non Wah is outside Charleston SC on the Atlantic coast. Camp Ho Non Wah offers the Woodsman program for 1st year scouts, regular merit badge program and Bohicket Towne where you live like the settlers did in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. More information will be coming out about these programs soon. We are working on opening up the registration on our troop website and will have that going soon too. We want to get the early bird cost for camp so we are targeting to have all fees payed to the camp by May 1st. For the merit badge program the fee is $300, Woodsman program fee is $330 and Bohicket Towne cost is $370. In order to make the May 1st deadline all fees are due to the troop by April14th. Additional troop fees will apply for travel and lunch on the day we travel to camp, amount has yet to be determined. The fee for adults this year is $150 and I am hoping for the usual 8 leaders to accompany the scouts. Any questions or concerns, let me know. More information will be flooding out as the days go by.
