While Summer seems like a long ways off, it is now time to start planning a great summer fun adventure by attending Summer Camp:


I highly encourage all Scouts to consider Summer Camp!


For the New Scouts, the Pioneer Program will cover most of the requirements for Tenderfoot, a good part of Second Class, and part of First Class.  In addition, there is the swimming Merit Badge and time for other Merit Badges such as Archery, Nature, Mammal Studies, Fishing and a host of others. 


For the more seasoned Scouts, there are a host of other Merit Badges like Camping, Wilderness Survival, Environmental Science, and much more. 


For the Senior Scouts in addition to Merit Badges, there is COPE (Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience), or you can do a Canoe Trek (this takes some lead time in planning).


Summer Camp is a great adventure for all Scouts!


The Twin River Council (TRC) Loyalty fee for summer camp is $475 and the regular fee is $495.


For the older Scouts, in order to pay the Twin River Council loyalty rate of $475, we must submit the deposit of $100 to TRC by March 15th.  This means we must have your $100 deposit by (last)Tuesday’s Troop Meeting 3/12 or an indication to use your Troop credit via E-MAIL ( by 3/13 so that we can register you by 3/15.  Otherwise the price to TRC goes up to $495.


For our new Scouts, there is no need for the deposit in March.  The date to pay in full is 6/11/19.  I expect the TRC cost to be $475.  After this date, the TRC price goes up to $495.


There will be an additional charge of $60 ($10 for the Troop Photo and $50 transportation costs).


If you have any questions, please see me, Mr. Bernichon, at the Troop meeting or send an E-Mail to


Thank you.
