Tent & Hammock camping on Lake Yale in Umatilla, FL.   

Activities include: Canoeing, dock fishing, pontoon fishing and boating, tubing, water skiing, hiking, land clearing service project, white pelican island night trip,  and shooting sports, including rifle shooting!

This is a camp managed by "Dads for Boys International"  (click to launch) campground.

  1. INFORMATION SHEET  - Print it, READ IT, and put it in your Troop notebook  Use it to prepare/pack for the trip.   Click to view, and then hover near the bottom to save/print OR to download go to the bottom of this page and click the down arrow beside the sheet.
  2. CAMPOUT AGENDA (coming soon) - Print this, and be ready to bring it with you on the campout.
  3. PARENT PERMISSION FORM - Print it, have your parents sign it, and bring it to the Troop Meeting with payment on February 11th.  NOTE:  From now on, the PLC decided that forms will be turned in TWO weeks before the campout.
  4. HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT - Print this and have  your parents sign it, and bring it with your payment and permission form as well.

FISHING LICENSES (for those 16 or older) - If you are 16 or older, you will need a freshwater license.  If you fish from shore, it is free, if you want to fish from the canoe, it costs $17 for an annual license.  You can get these from Walmart or HERE.


Use the following to Pack Yourself using these 3 things below.   When you’re done, if you are a new scout, have your parents check you:
  1. Personal Camping Gear List in your Scout Book
  2. Information Sheet printed above
  3. Your own personal List you already have  If you don't have one, CLICK HERE for an example or CLICK HERE to edit/save your own in MsWord.  Note, these can be downloaded from Scouts -> Documents & Links any time.

So, here are some additional packing suggestions/requirements that are not in the Scout Book or Information Sheet, but we discussed at the Troop Meeting:

  • Whistle (required to wear while canoeing)
  • Land Clearing Tools (for service project)
  • Those who are using hammocks, you may be okay this time of year without netting, but if you have it, bring it.
  • If you like fishing, they have a well stocked lake.  If you have a net, you can catch minnows to fish with, or bring your own freshwater bait or lures.
  • Entertainment for the ride.   Bring a book, magazine, read your scout book for the 2 hour trip.
  • Again, refer to your personal camping list, the scout book, AND the information sheet.
