I wanted to pass along the basic info about T131’s summer camp plans for next year so everyone has plenty of time to plan and prepare for the highlight of the summer!
DATES: Sunday, June 25 – Saturday, July 1
COSTS: Youth $485 ($455 with Early Bird discount if registered by April 14)
Adults $265 ($225 with Early Bird discount if registered by April 14)
CAMP BOWMAN PROGRAMS: We are going to have a slightly different experience this summer — we will be staying at Goshen’s Camp Bowman this time around (on the other side of Lake Meriweather, across from Camp Olmstead). Bowman also has a program for new scouts (called Bowman Brigade) and a wide range of merit badge courses for older scouts. It  even offers a customizable Vets program for experienced scouts who have completed most of their merit badges and want to take advantage of the wide range of activities around Goshen – adventures like climbing, water sports, hiking overnighters, ATVs, and even some Lenhok’sin advanced outdoor challenges! For adults, there will also be some training opportunities like IOLS or BSLST, depending on the Council’s availability.
PATROL COOKING:  One big difference this year will be developing our camp cooking skills. Unlike Olmstead’s dining hall, all of the meals at Bowman will involve patrol cooking! Bowman provides the supplies and equipment, but our scouts will be cooking all of their own meals.
TRANSPORTATION: You can choose to ride the Goshen buses chartered by the Council, or you can drive (197 miles, or about 3 hours). Bus ticket prices haven’t been announced yet ,but were $70 last year.
I will send out more detailed information and the 2023 registration form at a later date. Please feel free to email me if you have questions!
