$50 per person deposit for this trip is needed by JUNE 23!!!  There will be a payment plan worked out once we have the total number attending.   

This is going to be an AWESOME, FABULOUS trip for Scouts and/or Scout families.  If you have any questions please contact Melissa Stankus, cn2stankus@gmail.com  or 978-774-0841

- Bring a day pack for Sunday orientation (with a towel and water bottle) and use throughout the week.

- Phone use is limited to a camp phone. "No news is good news." Do not try to reach the adult leaders as reception is poor.
- No food in the Troop campsite (there are animals and we want to discourage uninvited visitors).
- Suggest 2 towels as we'll be doing a lot of water activities.
- No open toed shoes (sandals, flip flops, etc. are not allowed).
- A clothesline would be handy to dry swim trunks and towels.
- Please label everything you do not want lost.
