Thanks to every one who helped out with Scouting for Food. We collected over 8,600 pounds of goods for the Belair United Methodist Church’s food bank. Troop and Pack 275 should be very proud of this contribution and service.
James Maggio’s Eagle Project turned out great. Thank you for every one who showed up to help.
Its almost Summer Camp Time, now we need to make sure we get ready.
Current medical forms are required to attend camp, there are no exceptions. They must not be more than 12 months old, parts A, B and C must be fully completed and signed by both the Scout and parent or guardian. Part C must be signed by a Doctor and a copy of both sides of current insurance card is required. Additionally, there are two forms specifically required for CBH that must be completed. The first is a medicine form and the second is a release waiver. I have attached copies of both the medical and camp forms for you to fill out. Please keep the medical form original and only give us a copy in case ours gets lost being hauled to all the campouts.
Packing and camp information sheets are also attached. However, based upon my 6 years of summer camp experience – the packing list is too much. Packing light is better than having more than you can manage. Most Scouts come home with 2/3rds of their packed clothes and towels unused. The Field Uniform (tan shirts) are required for travel up and back, evening meals and all campfires. Red Troop activity shirts or any BSA t-shirts are great for the rest of the day. Anyone wishing to purchase additional red Troop activity shirts please let me know by Monday night as I will be placing an order next week. The cost is $9 for the cotton and $12 for the micro fiber shirts.
We will be departing from the Scout Hut Sunday morning on June 24th, please plan to arrive for check in at 9:30 AM. Bring a bag lunch and drink as we will be stopping along the way for lunch.
Let me know if you have any questions

Please see the following note from our District Executive.
Due to weather concerns, the York Activities team has decided to postpone this weekend’s Beach Sweep Event. We have held Beach sweep for over 35 years and it pains us to postpone the event, however our first priority is the safety of our scouting family.
We are looking into other dates later in the season for us to hold this camping trip, look for more information on that in the coming week.
Please keep the people in the storms’ path in your thoughts.
