The Transatlantic Council will be hosting a campout in conjunction with the Centennial Commemoration Event of the Meuse-Argonne Offensive at the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery and Memorial.

September 21-23, 2018. Romagne-sous-Montfaucon, France

Registration is open until 14 Sep for the Muse-Argonne Camporee. The link is http://tac-bsa.kintera.org/MeuseArgonne

This will be the only Pack family camping event for the fall. Charlemagne District has cancelled the fall shooting camp to focus on this event. All Pack camping events are open to the entire family.

In addition to the registration, please use the RSVP function in Scoutbook to let us know if you will be attending. This allows us to start determining food costs for the event. Meal costs should not exceed $7 per attendee for the weekend. 

The Pack will purchase the historic trail patch for all BSA registered youth and adults.

Anyone attending the event must fill out the BSA health forms part A & B. This includes any parents and siblings. You can find the health forms in the documents page of the Pack's site or at https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_AB.pdf

BSA health forms, as easy as A, B, C

posted Mar 21, 2017, 2:30 PM by Chris Potter

Taking your Cub Scouts on a local tour or your Boy Scouts on a two-night camping trip? The forms you’ll need are different from those required on a camping trip lasting more than 72 hours.

Q. Who needs to complete an Annual Health and Medical Record? 
A. For any and all Scouting activities, all participants must complete Part A and Part B.  "All participants" includes parents, guardians, siblings, youth, staff, and unit leaders. Though Part C is only required for participation in events lasting longer than 72 hours, all BSA participants are encouraged to complete this Pre-Participation Physical during an annual physical performed by a medical professional.

Part A and Part B - This is the one the adult or the Scout’s parents fill out. Parts A and B cover things like contact information, insurance coverage, health history, hold harmless release, photo release, and adult or parent signature.

Part C is usually the one that causes last minute scrambling. It is the physical. It seems like no matter how many times you warn the parents that their kids are going to need a physician’s signature on the medical form, there are some who put it off until right before camp. Part C is required for Scouts and adults if any of the following apply:

  • The event will last more than 72 hours
  • The event is a high adventure base event
  • The event is strenuous and demanding
You can find all BSA health and medical forms in the documents section of the Pack website.

Normandy Family Camp

posted Mar 21, 2017, 2:03 PM by Chris Potter   [ updated Mar 22, 2017, 10:37 AM ]



Our Normandy Family Campout is coming up next month (21-23 Apr 17). We will be carpooling and departing the Scout Hut at 0600 on 21 Apr 17. Yes, the boys will have to miss school that day. Google Maps states 7.5 hours. I anticipate we will get there at 1700. That gives us 3.5 hours for lunch, breaks, construction, and the unforeseen... Bring your passports!
