She will make the reservations for the troop, so that we can all sit together. Please email her soon so we can get the reservations into the scout office.

Saturday - Monday, May 28-30, 2016, Columbia Gorge Camp and Waterfall Hikes

Meet at Wesley Church early by 7:30 a.m. for a departure by 8:00 a.m. to the Columbia Gorge on Saturday, May 28th. On Saturday we will stop first at the Historic Vista built in 1916 at Crown Point (exit 22 near Corbett) to view the full impact of the Gorge. The next stop will be the hike of Multnomah Falls (620 foot increase in elevation) with its eleven switch backs up and down. (Bring a sack lunch for Saturday and it will be a troop cook - troop provides the rest of the meals through Monday breakfast with the charge to be announced.) After the hike of Multnomah Falls we will set up camp at the KOA Campground at Cascade Locks - bring your suit and towel for the pool. From camp, the troop will take short day hikes of other nearby Gorge Waterfalls throughout the weekend. Be sure and signup by Wednesday evening so that we have a good count for planning this Memorial Day Weekend trip.

Summer Camp

Troop 100 will attend Boy Scout Summer Camp at Historic Camp Parsons on Washington's Hood Canal at Brinnon, Washington from June 26th - July 2nd. This excellent camp has been in continuous operation for 97 years and has a new dining hall! The list of things to bring and the camp program is contained in the Camp Guide at the website: wwwseattlebsa.org, click Boy Scout Camping, click Camp Parsons webpage to find the Camp Guide. (The mess and utensil kits listed for the campsite meals are not needed for Troop 100 Scouts as the troop will provide coking gear and plastic/paper products.) Scouts attending will have an opportunity to plan their advancement program for the week at troop meetings as camp approaches. Only Scouts and adults registered with the BSA are permitted to stay overnight in camp. Unregistered adults planning to attend camp with the troop must take the Youth Protection Training online and submit an adult registration form through Dave Ragsdale. Siblings may not attend this camp and family pets are not permitted in camp at any time. Scouts and adults staying in camp over 72 hours must have a current signed Scout Medical Examination within 12 months of camp. The form is available from Cindy Davis at troop meetings or may be printed from the website. PLEASE BE PROACTIVE and do not put the medical examination off, as this is a BSA National Policy which cannot be waived by Troop 100 or the Camp Director. (Low cost ($10.) physicals for Scouts 10 1/2 - 21 will be offered at the Scout Service Center by appointment this Thursday, May 26th. See the announcement above for that date in this blast.) Scout policy relative to medications is explained in the Camp Guide and will be discussed at meetings. This camp has an expansive waterfront and to make FULL use of the waterfront a Scout or adult must pass the Scout Swimmer Test: "Jump feet first into water over the head in depth. Level off and swim 75 yards in a strong manner using one or more of the following strokes: sidestroke, breaststroke, trudged, or crawl; then swim 25 yards using an easy resting backstroke. The 100 yards must be completed in one swim without stops and must include at least one sharp turn. After completing the swim, rest by floating." The water at Camp Parsons is warm and buoyant (salty) making for a easy swim, but many boys have not been trained in a resting backstroke, so it is highly recommended that parents take their sons to a pool to learn/practice the elementary backstroke prior to camp. The out of council fee for Scouts to attend Camp Parsons this year is $355. for Scouts and $220. for adults. For Scouts, Troop 100 will pay half of the first $290. (the cost this year in council at Camp Baker) and the entire balance over $290. The Scout will pay the other half of the first $290. from his Scout Activity Allowance, which means most families will not have a balance due. Scouts may bring money for the Trading Post and merit badge materials, per the Camp Guide. The troop pays for adults, given their donations of vacation time and gasoline. Per the Guide and prior experience, this Council gives refunds in very limited circumstances after a troop's final payment, which is due May 30, 2016. If you have signed up and must cancel - Scout or adult - please advise the troop by May 30th to avoid unfortunate losses to the troop and Scout Activity Accounts.

Wednesday, May 11, 2016, Wesley Church

7:00 p.m. Troop Meeting - Camporee departure meeting with final patrol meetings to settle patrol menus, duty rosters, clean and prepare patrol boxes, and practice patrol yells. We will do the traditional trailer loading for camporee at the conclusion of the troop meeting.

The Greenwood District Camporee will be at Baker Bay Park on Dorena Reservoir east of Cottage Grove from May 13th -15th. This is the annual competition off the troops and their patrols throughout the District. The troop will pay the $12. admission charge for all participants who sign up in advance by the troop meeting on May 11th, so that the camporee arm bands can be purchased in advance and worn to the event, allowing speedy admission onto the camporee grounds Friday evening. Those who do not arrive with the troop may claim their decorative arm band at the gate if they are on the troop list - or if not signed up for the list - pay $12. and seek later reimbursement from the troop, if desired. Our departure from Wesley Church, May 13th, will be by 6:00 p.m. Scouts may eat before they go or bring a sack dinner, but the troop will be providing the Full Cracker Barrel on Friday evening when setup is compete, which will be sufficient. Camporee is conducted on the Patrol Method with points deducted for adults helping the Scouts. This camporee will be patrol cooking with the patrols planning the meals for Saturday Breakfast, Lunch (carried in the field), Dinner, and Sunday Breakfast. Patrol Quartermasters will secure the goods and advise patrol members of the cost per person, so that reimbursement can be collected in the parking lot by the Quartermasters Friday evening. First Class Cooking can be done by a patrol Scout if the Scoutmaster is advised in advance. (A separate meal service for troop adults attending is planned.) There will be a troop uniformity inspection on Saturday morning on the Flag Grounds (Scout shirt, neckerchief and slide with blue jeans) and patrols will compete in events throughout Saturday without return to the troop campsite until the all competitive events have been completed at the end of the day. Points will be deducted if anyone is in the troop site - youth or adult - during the campground site inspection on Saturday. Patrols should be ready with their flags and yells to show Scout Spirit throughout the day. The Order of the Arrow Call Out will be at the conclusion of the campfire on Saturday evening. The complete guide to the Camporee can at found at: www.otcbsa.org, click programs, click camporees.
