Summer camp adult leaders needed JUN / JUL 2017

Posted by robertgates on Nov 28 2016 - 11:27am

For summer 2017 the troop will be attending 2 summer camps

These camps are:

  • Woodruff Scout Reservation (WSR), Blairsville, GA Sunday June 11, 2017 - Saturday June 17, 2017 Woodruff is operated by the Atlanta Area Council
  • Skymont Scout Reservation (SSR), Altamont, TN Sunday July 9, 2017 - Saturday July 15, 2017 Skymont is operated by the Cherokee Area Council

A key part of the summer camp effort is the Adult Leader at Camp.  This is an individual who can be in camp for the full week, who will take part in pre-camp planning and organization, who will work with the scout leadership group before and during camp, and who will be in charge of the troop from an adult leadership perspective during the week. We will need one for both WSR and Skymont.  Please contact me if you are interested for summer 2017
