A Summer Camp Message from Mrs. Coffey ------

Good afternoon all. Summer camp 2012 is just around the corner. I just wanted to send out a reminder to all scouts attending camp this summer. Please be aware that there are fees associated with some of the merit badge classes. Also a reminder that there are pre-requisites for many of the classes. The easiest way to find specific information for the classes you will be taking, is to go to the Heart of Va website. Go to Camp T. Brady Saunders under CAMPS. There is a drop down for Program Guide. In the program guide will be the specific fees and pre-requisites for the classes you are taking. Be Prepared!!!! See you soon!

Do you want to be more involved with the Troop but don’t want to go camping? Please consider joining the committee. The Troop Committee meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 PM. Duties include budget, advancement, fundraising and leadership review.

If you have any current merit badge books that you are willing to part with– Please donate them to our troop library
