The Summer Court of Honor will be held on Thursday, 30 Aug 18 at 7:30 pm and all are invited. The scouts earned almost 100 merit badges and several other awards at summer camp.

The scouts will also be choosing which camp they want to attend next summer. Up for consideration are Forestburg Scout Reservation (Dan Beard), Massawepie (Camp Pioneer) and Read Scout Reservation (Camp Waubeeka). The scouts would cook their own meals with food supplied by the camp. If the scouts really don't want to cook their own, I would suggest Forestburg, Ockanickon, or Resica Falls. My personal preference is to have the scouts cook because I think it makes them better scouts by teaching them not only cooking skills but fire skills, time management, and personal responsibility. The other reason for cooking is that we haven't had much luck with the dining facilities. For any scout that cannot make the court of honor, they can email their vote to me by Thursday, 30 Aug 18 at 4pm. Please have your scouts review the camp websites.

The first campout of the year will be the weekend of 21 Sep 18 at Cheesequake State Park. Permission slips went out in the court of honor mailing and are due at the court of honor. They are not available on the website currently.

Yours in Scouting,

Will Purcell
