2014 Summer Camp Update

BSA Troop 287 —  June 15, 2014 — Leave a comment

We’re now less than a month away from heading to Ben Delatour/Camp Jeffries Summer Camp. A few house-keeping items:

Friday Night Dinner

Visitors are invited to join us in Camp Charles Jeffrey on Friday night for the Family Dinner. We need advanced reservations and payment for the Friday night meal by Tuesday at noon of the week you will be attending. You can buy Friday dinner passes under the day passes option in your registration on Camper. Friday Night Family Dinner Only: $8.00 per person.

If you plan to attend, you’ll need to write us a check for $8 and get that to Phil Stafford, troop treasurer. We’ll then be able to go into their registration site and sign you up.


Bring your completed medical forms to the next troop meeting, please!

If you haven’t completed your medical form yet, please do so. Note that you will need a front and back copy of your insurance card, too. I (Swanie) will be collecting all the forms and have them in a master 3-ring binder to take to camp. Be sure to keep a copy for yourself. This form is good for one year for all BSA activities that may require a medical form.

Day Passes for Visitor Fees

Visitors and guests are welcome at the Scout Camp during any day of the week. Anyone who is not on the Scout or Adult summer camp roster is considered a guest. All guests must check in at the Scout Camp office upon arrival to camp and must check out when leaving.

Visitor day passes are $35 per day for adults and guests that come for just a day (or two or three). We will need to know when they will be in camp and for how many days at least two weeks prior to arrival to have food, as dining hall availability allows.

Day Passes

You can purchase day passes for the visitors who will be in camp. They are $35/day and can be added to your registration by checking the “Day Passes” box. Simply enter in the number of passes you would like.

Adults that plan to camp with the troop (regardless of the number of days) in the troop’s campsite must have the required Leader Reference Form and Character References. They will also need a Health and Medical record, but will not need Part C (Physicians form) unless they will be staying more than 72 hours. Upon check-in at the camp office you will be required to check-in all medications to the Camp Health Officer.

If you want a day pass, let us know and arrange payment with Phil Stafford.

We’ll try to keep all the information updated on the summer camp web page:
