July 1st - 8th, 2017

Camp Daniel Boone is Troop 337's choice for summer camp in 2017!   This will be Troop 337's second trip to Camp Rainey Mountain.  The first time we went was in 2013.  

This is a well established camp with a reputation of great youth counselors and a robust program.  

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.

Last time, we went by bus.  This time, we'll have two vans and a trailer.

Two Tubs .vs. One Foot Locker
All Items Listed in the Information Sheet under "#3 - Camp Gear", 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 and are also hard to organize.  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 $10 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 $31 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
