Summer Camp Dates Have Been Set

62_gatelargeMark your calendars! Summer camp dates have been set! Troop 501 will be attending the Pony Express Council’s Camp Geiger, in Saint Joseph, Missouri July 13-19. Some of the highlights of Camp Geiger include an award-winning NRA Shooting Range for Rifle, Shotgun, and Archery, complete with National Shooting Competitions. Senior campers (think Smokies) will also have the opportunity to throw knives, hatchets, tomahawks, and shoot black powder rifles. Younger campers (think first year Scouts) will have a special program to help them work through Scouting Skills essential to obtaining First Class… Swimming is done in a pool – Mile Swim practices on Monday and Tuesday morning, with the Mile Swim, itself, on Wednesday Morning. Dining is done in a hall (we’ve heard fantastic things about this Camp’s food)… Then, there’s the Tribe of Mic-O-Say… Scouts who are of Advanced rank claws-all(Star and above), as well as leaders, who have attended at least two summer camp sessions, previously (this will be their third), may qualify for tapping into the Tribe. Membership is granted by the Tribal Council. No troop elections are held. Those who would ordinarily qualify for election into the Order of the Arrow, will still be eligible. NOW is the time to check the Troop 501 Advancement System, to ensure that your information is CORRECT, and Up-To-Date… More information will be posted, shortly. The registration fee for summer camp, this year, is $302 for Scouts registered by April 1, 2014, and $178 for leaders registered by April 1, 2014. Additional, nominal, program and transportation fees will be noted in the materials, as it becomes available, and is posted.

This is going to be a GREAT summer!!!
