6:00 p.m. Review individual Scout Advancement Reports from Camp Baker. Quartermaster and fold up tents dried in the garage from the fishing trip.

7:00 p.m. Troop Meeting - This week we begin planning and preparation for the backpacking trip scheduled for July 26-28 and complete planning merit badge programs for Camp Meriwether, so class spots can be reserved in the computer program to avoid disappointment at camp. (There are 43 merit badge offerings at Camp Meriwether, plus program offerings from which to select.) Parents of the Meriwether Camp Scouts are encouraged to attend or drop by the troop meeting as adult camp signups and attendance/transportation must be confirmed. Its a very full camp, so we will need to confirm a spot asap for anyone requesting to add late.

Camp Meriwether document collection (submit to RN Suzanne Rodiquez) if not previously turned in: Scout and adult leader BSA Medical Form Parts A,B,C; attach copy of both sides of your insurance card, and the Special Diet Request Form, if applicable.

This Week at Troop 100

Posted on Jun 26 2024 - 2:15am

Wednesday, June 26, 2024, Wesley Church

6:00 p.m. PLC Meeting for Camp Baker - troop and patrol organization.

7:00 p.m. Troop Meeting. This week we complete preparation for Camp Baker (July 7-13) as Scouts complete planning their merit badge programs for Camp Baker and consider the merit badge schedule for Camp Meriwether. The Leader's Guides are online and each Scout is receiving the sheets with information for parents, things to bring to camp (and not bring), daily camp schedule, the adventure trail, Baker Anthem Segments, honor troop, and special evening and out bound programs. Parents of the Summer Camp Scouts are encouraged to attend or drop by the troop meeting as adult camp signups and attendance/transportation must be confirmed.

Camp Baker document collection (submit to RN Suzanne Rodiquez) if not previously turned in: Scout and adult leader BSA Medical Form Parts A,B,C; attach copy of both sides of your insurance card, and the Special Diet Request Form, if applicable. (Advance form copies available at otcbsa.org, camping, Camp Baker.)

  • Adults camping overnight for one or more nights on Scout camping trips must complete YPT Training at My.Scouting.org, then fill out and submit the adult registration form with the YPT certificate to the troop or Scout Service Center. The troop will pay your fee from our registration account. The background check will then be processed to complete your registration. (Please submit to attend Camp Baker not later than the troop meeting on June 26th to allow time for background checks to be completed.)
  • Adults must also have the BSA Medical Form A,B,C if staying in camp during the week more than a total of 72 hours; if an adult is staying less than 72 hours, BSA Form A,B will suffice, but you will not receive a buddy tag for the Waterfront. (All Scouts must have BSA Medical Form A,B,C to attend camp.)

Sunday, July 7, 2024 - Departure for Camp Alton F. Baker

Meet at the Buena Vista School Parking Lot at 9:30 a.m. - due to Services at Wesley Church - for a 10:00 a.m. departure for Camp Baker or when all the paperwork is ready to go, whichever comes first. Final turn in of the forms mentioned above that were due at the July 3rd Wednesday evening's meeting.

  • The troop suggests the average Scout bring about $40 in spending money for snacks plus the cost of merit badge supplies and kits, the cost of which will vary, at the trading post. (The camp says the average Scout spends $60 - $75 at the trading post. If a Scout runs short on spending money, the troop will cover merit badge supplies or kits from their Scout Activity Allowance.) Camp Baker will provide a camp patch and the troop will provide the Adventure Trail bead neckless for all our Scouts. We suggest Scouts wear troop t-shirts, although they can purchase camp t-shirts at the Trading Post. We suggest Scouts bring their ordinary pocketknife from home rather than buy another at camp. The troop will bring a merit badge book library, so they do not need to be purchased at the trading post. Blue Merit Badge Cards are not used at Camp Baker, so the troop will receive an electronic advancement and merit badge report after return from camp for each Scout. Scouts need to make sure they are on the list at each merit badge class and that their attendance is being recorded.
  • Highway 126W to Florence, south on Highway 101 to Dunes City, left on Boy Scout Road to Camp Baker, for an on time opening of the locked camp gate at 12 noon at Camp Baker. Pack per the list provided at troop meetings and available at www.otcbsa.org, camping, Camp Baker. Wear your Scout uniform and Scout slacks with troop neckerchiefs for departure and all Scouts not yet First Class Rank and Scouts expecting to complete Star or Life Ranks at camp must bring their Scout Handbooks to camp. (Uniforms will be needed in camp for breakfast/dinner meal flag ceremonies, Camp Baker campfires and chapel as well as any Boards of Review and as part of Honor Troop status.)
  • Bring sack lunches to eat on the way (at an agreed upon stop) or after arrival as the first dining hall meal in camp will not be until Sunday evening. Bring accessible bathing suits and towels for the swim test. Even if the Scout is not yet ready to complete the First Class Swimmer test, the troop encourages taking the swim test as it includes some Second and First Class Scout requirements as explained at Troop Meetings. A Scout who does not pass the swimmer test this year, may still pass the beginner test which meets a Second Class Requirement and allows a buddy tag to use the beginner area at the waterfront and practice his swimming ability in the lake. A Scout who has not passed the Swimmer test may still go out in a row boat with an adult swimmer, but no other watercraft such as canoes, kayaks, paddle boards.
  • Provide all medications at departure (prescription and non-prescription) in a zip lock bag in their original labeled containers per Oregon State Health standards to the troop medical officer on departure. Label nonprescription medication with name and dosage. Medications are kept by the troop at camp, except emergency medications (epi-pens, rescue inhalers, emergency insulin, nitro, and other immediate use emergency medication) are kept with the owner. Owners are responsible to take their emergency use medication with them on hikes and out bound activities.
