July 18th-26th, 2015

This will be Troop 337's first trip to Woodruff.  This is a beautiful, well maintained, well organized camp, with a very Spirited staff as well.

A Troop whitewater trip is included.  Troop activities include mountain biking, climbing, shooting, an overnight canoe trek to camp on an island, and much more.

En-route we will be camping at Robins Air Force base on the way up, and enjoying a Naval Aircraft Museum, and bowling.  On the way back, we will camp on the lake overlooking Stone Mountain.  We'll climb Stone Mountain and enjoy a laser light show in the evening.

Other Resources - Here are some more documents that you may find helpful

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) - around $12 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 - around $20 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
Unless you have arachnophobia, you probably don't need any mosquito netting, but if you do.. .   Bring twine to hang them up in your tent. They are sold at may places including:
  • Sports Authority - They have in stock (June 14)  - These are tall ones that will fit - $15 SEE HERE
  • Scout Shop - Currently, they only have the smaller one in stock which is shorter and a few inches shy on the length (but will work in a pinch)  - $13  SEE HERE or you can order the larger one for $20 SEE HERE , which is the same as Sports Authorities.
  • Note: LaNoChe Cots are 78"long x 26" wide  (18" off the ground), so, get a net that will fit that (or close)
