Troop 10 Westerly
Yawgoog Information Page
TROOP 10 WILL BE GOING TO CAMP YAWGOOG JULY 7-14, 2019.
The cost per scout is $435.00. We are required to pay the bill 16 days prior to our arrival at camp. If we do not pay on time we are charged an extra $25.00 per scout. These are Camp Yawgoog policies not Troop 10 Westerly policies.
IF YOUR SON IS PLANNING ON ATTENDING SUMMER CAMP WE NEED HIS PAYMENT BY JUNE 13th.
Parents have asked about making payments for summer camp instead of having to come up with the total all at once. To help with this, Troop 10 will be participating in the Yawgoog hat incentive program It costs no more to participate in this program and participating gets your son a free Yawgoog hat.
Once we have made our final payment to Camp Yawgoog and for reason your son does not attend camp, leaves camp early, or is sent home early, refunds will be handled entirely by Camp Yawgoog.
We also have limited spaces for fathers who would like to spend a day at camp with us. If you are interested please let us know soon, before all the days are taken.
Your son will also need to have a physical before he attends summer camp. We will be working on arranging to have a doctor perform camp physicals, or if you would prefer to have your son see his own doctor, or has had a recent physical and you need a form to take to his doctor please let us know. We will need a parent to fill out a medical form before the physical. You can either print out the form here or ask for one at one of the troop meetings.
There is also limited financial assistance available if needed. There is no reason that every scout who wishes does not attend camp.
Any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Scoutmaster:
Troop 10 will be leaving for summer camp on Sunday July 7th. We will meet at the church at 4:30pm. We will have a truck to transport your son’s gear to camp. Please plan on driving your son to camp & see where he is staying.
All of your son’s gear should be in one foot locker with a lock. All scouts will be wearing their class “A” uniform when we leave for camp, NO EXCEPTIONS. We have some uniform parts if you need them. We also have troop hats and T-shirts for sale if you need them. Your son will wear his T-shirt to breakfast and lunch. He will be required to wear his full class “A” uniform to supper. You should also send your son with an extra key or combination for his lock to be held by the adult leaders in case he loses his. These will be collected at the church.
Scout shorts are $38.00 per pair. If you can find a pair of shorts of the same style and color as scout shorts, that will be fine.
Please remember when you bring your son home from camp that you will have to transport his foot locker home.
