Camp Rainey Mountain is Troop 337's out-of-state Summer Camp Choice for 2012!   This is a well established camp with a reputation of great youth counselors and a robust program.

Most of the information about camp Rainey Mountain will be given at the July 2nd information meeting following the Troop Meeting .  For your convenience, we have posted resource information below.    

Scout Questions? - If Scouts have any questions about Summer Camp, they may contact the SPL, Jason Walton at:

Parent Questions?  -  If parents have any questions about Summer Camp, they may contact our Summer Camp Coordinater, Tonya Cherry at:

  • Print the Permission Form, have your parents fill it out, and turn it into the Troop meeting on July 2nd.
  • Print the Packing List (2 pages), be sure your parents see their information on page 2.
  • Print the Travel Agenda, and put it in your day pack to use on the trip.
  • Read everything and explore all of the links on this page.  Print Maps, etc.

Note: To save as a PDF for printing, right click over link and choose "Save As".    If you just click, your browser may bring these up on a web page instead of as a PDF.  If it does, hover your mouse near the bottom and use the print icon to print it, otherwise your browser will cut things off.

Spending Money

Required - These monies are needed should be set aside, possibly in separate envelopes so that they don't get spent before they are needed:
  • Seven Travel Meals - $25
  • Merit Badge Costs (see guide - include MB books that you may need to purchase)
  • Souvenirs & Snacks - $30 to $50 suggested


  • Rest Stop Snacks (for 5 stops total)
  • Bowling at AFB on the way up # back - $10/session bowling + snacks
Note:  It is important that Scouts keep some monies separate to prevent running out.  There will be a Troop Lock-Box that Scouts may use to store extra money if desired.  The Troop has a policy that there will be NO BORROWING/LOADNING amongst Scouts on the Trip.
What to Pack Stuff In?
When you arrive for departure, you should be packed as follows:
  1. Two Tubs (or one foot locker.. see info below) filled with everything on the Packing List with the exception of the following items:
  2. Folding Camp Chair and optional Folding Table or stool (1 table/tent)
  3. Bedding in a Duffel Bag or thick trash bag (if you have room to spare in your tubs, use it).   This would include sleeping bag, pillow, sheets, mosquito netting, etc.
  4. Car Bag – This will be brought with you in the car and should contain: Your bagged lunch, travel money (meals & activities), sleep clothes, toiletries needed for overnight, a change of undergarments for the next day, and travel entertainment (books, electronics, games).   You may wish to use the “Day Pack” from the other packing list to hold this, but then you’d need to re-pack it once at camp.
Two Tubs .vs. One Foot Locker
Items listed in #1 above, must be carried in either two tubs or one foot locker.   Duffel bags lead to dis-organization on a long summer camp, and back packs have no place to hang.  Suit cases aren't well suited for being in an outside tent and typically do not hold as much as the tubs or foot locker.    Anything  you use must be under 18" (cot height with no sagging).   Here are the differences between the foot locker .vs. the two tubs options:
  • Two Tubs - 116 Quarts (58 each) - $10.93 for both at WalMart - SEE HERE (they sell individually at store)
    • Easier to organize in 2 containers
    • Lids come off without pulling out from under cot
    • Allows tent mates to access tubs simultaneously
  • One Foot Locker - 98 Quarts - $19.97 at WalMart - SEE HERE (they sell individually at store)
    • More robust (for future use)
    • Lockable (although we ask that they not be locked if possible)
    • Harder to organize and access under cot and with tent mates
Mosquito Netting - Not Needed for Camp Rainey Mountain
