July 2nd - 9th, 2016

This will be Troop 337's second trip to Camp Rainey Mountain.  The first time we went was at our Troops first Summer Camp in 2012.  

This is a well established camp with a reputation of great youth counselors and a robust program.  A Troop whitewater trip is included

On the way up,  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, will be driving straight through.







SCOUTS PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING IN PREPARATION FOR CAMP:
  1. Print the  Information Sheet, read it.
  2. Print the Cost Information Sheet, read it.
  3. Print the  Permission Form, have your parents fill it out, sign it, and turn it into the pre-camp meeting on June 13th.
  4. Print the Travel Agenda, read it, pack it for the trip.
  5. Print and sign ALL of the waivers in this Set Of Waivers.  The reason so many are needed is because we don't know which outfitters we will be going to.
  6. Print the Packing List (2 pages), be sure your parents see their information on page 2.  
  7. Print out the Camp Map and pack it.
Printing & Downloading Instructions:  Once you click on the forms above, you may hover near the bottom of the page to print and/or download them using the disc icon.  Also, you may download documents at the bottom of this page (see arrows).

MERIT BADGES!
  1. Look at the Merit Badge Prerequisites to determine if there's work you will need to do outside of camp (preferably before)
  2. To see the the requirements for your badges, go to the Merit Badge Requirements Page and search for your badge.
  3. You may find it helpful to print out and use a Merit Badge Workbook Sheet.
  4. If the Troop Has a Merit Badge Book, you can borrow it (see the Troop Librarian).  Otherwise you may purchase the book prior to camp, or at camp (bring money if at camp)
  5. Make printouts of your Merit Badge Schedule and have copies in your Day Pack (use the link below under "Other Resources")
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
We may be in Adirondacks (3 sided cabins), in which case the nets will not do you any good.  Unless you have arachnophobia, you probably don't need any mosquito netting up North, but if you do.. .   Bring twine to hang them up in your tent. They are sold at may places including:
  • Amazon - Select Single Wide - $10 SEE HERE
  • Scout Shop - $20 - SEE HERE
  • Note: Most Cots are 78"long x 26" wide  (18" off the ground), so, get a net that will fit that (or close)
