Rose Sale
Now - April 21st Sales
May 9th Self Pickup for delivery
May 10th Pickup From Mrs. Miller and Deliver

Spring is here and Mothers Day is around the corner. Our annual Mothers Day Rose Sale is a special sale for the boys as all the profits go directly into their campership account. The roses are sold for $16.00 a dozen and $7 of each sale goes directly to the Scouts campership. We hope to exceed our total sales last year of 200 dozen. We highly encourage you to participate to help offset the cost of camping and other upcoming scouting events. Please keep in mind that Mothers Day is on Sunday May 11th and the roses sold can be self picked-up on May 09th or at Mrs Millers on the morning of Saturday May 10th and "delivered that day".

If you sell 48 dozen roses you have earned enough to pay for summer camp this summer.

Troop 167 Summer Camp Information

All the scouts in our troop are strongly encouraged to attend at least one summer camp.

Not only is it fun, but scouts will earn Merit Badges, bond with their fellow scouts, and younger scouts get a good jump on compleating their requirements toward First Class. We need you to sign up as soon as possible. We need a rough headcount now, so the summer camp staff can plan accordingly!

$100 Deposits Due March 14th!

Camp Discounts:

$25 Brother Discount, each scout
$25 Scout attending a second week of camp in Council (Babcock Hovey, Massawepie, NYLT)

If financial aid is needed, council does have campership money available to pay typically half of the camp fee. See your Scoutmaster or Committee Chair for more information, or contact Council directly. Council would like all applications in by April 16th.

Camp Babcock-Hovey
July 13-18
Cost: $335 (includes camp T-shirt, and food for one meal cooked in the campsite)

This is an ideal summer camp for younger scouts, featuring a dining hall for meals, merit badge sessions in the morning and a Tenderfoot to First class program in the afternoon. There will also be the opportunity to earn the Toten' Chip or Fireman's Chit, as well as one of a few additional merit badges as well. Order scouts are also welcome, and will be able to plan their own afternoon program.

Note: The price will go up by $25 on May 9th.

Camp Massawepie
July 20-26
Cost: $355

Massawepie is located Between Cranberry Lake and Long Lake in the heart of the Adirondack Park, New York. At Massawepie you can canoe, kayak or sail on a mile-long private lake, hike on 20 miles of trails, and camp among eight other ponds without ever leaving camp property.

This is a camp for older scouts, featuring a dining hall instead of patrol cooking, merit badge sessions and perhaps an adventure trek or two.

Requirements: Scouts not yet 1st Class require Scoutmaster approval... easy if you have previous Scout troop camping experience

Note: The price will go up by $25 on May 9th.

Troop trip into the Adirondacks, NY Campout
When: August 11-17th
Cost: Around $300 per scout, final cost TBD based on number of scouts attending

We expect it will actually cost a less, and depends somewhat on how many scouts go, cost of gas, and whether we can get some additional group discounts. For the moment, it's a good target. Note that this cost covers the cost of tickets for scouts (but not adults) for all activities planned.

For planning purposes, we ask that all scouts that want to go register on-line below and a deposit check of $100 (or campership payment) will be due on March 15, 2014 to reserve your spot.
