The Redwoods planning group asks that signup and any cancellations for the Redwoods Adventure Camp be completed by the close of the troop meeting this week in order to complete planning. All participants must have a completed BSA medical form, current within the year, on file with the troop; as the camp exceeds 72 hours. Participation in the kayaking requires completion of the BSA Swimmer Test - First Class Scout Requirement 9.b. If you plan to kayak and this is not yet signednin your Scout Handbook, go to a local pool before the trip to complete the requirement and have your book signed if you successfully complete by a Lifeguard.  Adults attending are asked to go to www.myscouting.org,enter your codes or set up an account, and complete Safe Swim Swim Defense and Safety Afloat Training. Please print out your completion certificates and bring them in so your training can noted in the application for a tour permit. At the meeting we will have a packing list for the Redwoods Adventure Camp. The final trip budget will be presented with the cost per person (expected to be less than $200.)  and Tony Reyneke will individually review with you the amount you may owe, after the 50% payment by the troop and application of any amount remaining in your 2015 Scout Activity Allowance toward the balance. In cases of hardship when all Scout Activity Allowance funds have been used, a Campership may be considered on request from the Ron Neckels Trust. 

Signup begins this week for the last camping trip of the summer to Crater Lake, August 28-30. If you plan to go, please signup this week, so you are included in the initial request for reservations for the Crater Lake Boat Tour with a three hour stop on Wizard Island to hike to the top of the island. When signing up for this trip, adults should bear in mind that taking the lake tour requires walking down the 1.1 mile Cleetwood Trail to the lake shore and climbing back up at the conclusion of the lake tour, a hike said to be similar to climbing 70 flights of stairs.
