MEETING TO CHECKIN AND LOAD TRAILERS FROM 0715 TO 0800

We will be leaving the scout lodge parking lot BY 0815.

For the trip please wear your Class A with your swimsuit under you shorts.

Everyone will need a water bottle

 

Your gear should be marked with your name and Troop Number 

 

Be prepared with your packed trunk and a day pack.

You will take your daypack in the car with you and will be able to use your phones until we arrive at camp.

 

We will be stopping at the Wendy's in Blue Ridgeor another fast food chain of that kind on the way to camp so have around $10 in your bag as lunch is not provided by the troop that day.

 

 

 

Upon arrival at Woodruff all scouts will be taking a swim test (a couple of laps and dog paddling).  

PACK A TOWEL IN YOUR DAY PACK TO DRY OFF WITH.  All phones will be collected upon arrival.

There will be a store at camp and scouts are recommended to bring around $30 - $60 of cash to be able to buy snacks or other items.

For any scouts that are either moose or do not have a totin chip DO NOT BRING A KNIFE. Moose will be able to purchase a knife on the last day of camp.

There will also be showers at summer camp. All scouts (and adults - ha) are recommended to take at least 2 showers. The shower floors are not very clean so you should bring some cheap flip flops as shower shoes. 

Positions of Responsibility (will not count as a position of responsibility for rank progression but they are required and are a great way to show leadership skills ;) )

REMINDER - Uniforms, Knives & Shoes

Posted on May 17 2018 - 5:46pm

AS CONTINUE INTO OUR SUMMER PROGRAM REMEMBER

Boy Scouts is a Uniformed Organisation

Our uniform reminds us of our achievements and our history

Uniforms should be worn to Scout Activities

Uniforms are required for:

  • Scoutmaster Conferences
  • Boards of Review
  • Courts of Honour
  • Summer Camp (travel, dinner)
  • High Adventure (check in)
  • Attending a public meeting as a boy scout like Citizenship in Community
  • Uniforms are

In Troop 75 our uniform is:

  • Scout Shirt. Scout Pants or Shorts, Belt and Scout socks
  • Sash - required for Boards or Review / Conferences / Courts of Honour after you have earned Merit Badges (your Sash is a better place to keep your Merit Badges than in a drawer!)
  • Close Toed Footware - this is a safety issue

If you out grow shirts of pants - Troop 75 has a swap box, where you can exchange for a new uniform

The badges on our Scout Shirts are important and they should be present and they should be correct:

  • there should be the correct rank
  • there should be the correct leadership position - if you are no longer SPL then you should not wear the patch 
  • correct epaluettes - on Troop 75 activities there is no need to wear Camp Woodruff Staff epaluettes

 

Remember, no knives will be allowed at troop meetings unless knives are required for the meeting.  In addition, all safety rules must be followed pertaining to knife safety and the blood circle on outings as well.  No knives should be out unless used for a specific purpose. 

Article on Annual Physicals - important for Summer Camp and High Adventure (Seabase & Northern Tier)

Posted on May 14 2018 - 11:20am

Summer camp season’s almost here, so it’s time for that annual physical

We’re mere months away from the summer, aka the Greatest Scouting Season. And while it’s too early to pack your bags and load the trailer, the time is right for one essential step in summer Scouting preparation.

It’s time to get your physical.

As noted on the Annual Health and Medial Record website, a pre-participation physical is needed for resident campers (at summer or winter camps) and for Scouts and adult leaders attending events that last 72 hours or more.

That means it’s required for every participant at Boy Scout summer camp, any of the four BSA high-adventure bases and the 2017 National Jamboree.

Why is an Annual Health and Medical Record required?

Since at least the 1930s, the BSA has required the use of standardized health and medical information. The Annual Health and Medical Record …

  • Promotes health awareness
  • Collects necessary data
  • Provides medical professionals with critical information needed to treat a patient in the event of an illness or injury
  • Supplies emergency contact information
  • Prepares participants for high-adventure activities and increased physical activity
  • Reviews participants’ readiness for gatherings like the national Scout jamboree and other specialized activities
  • Enables councils to operate day and resident camps in a way that adheres to state and BSA requirements
  • Standardizes medical records in a way that can be used by members in all 50 states

Which are the different parts of the Annual Health and Medical Record?

The Annual Health and Medical Record (AHMR) comes in three parts:

  • Part A is an informed consent, release agreement and authorization that needs to be signed by every participant (or a parent and/or legal guardian for all youth under 18).
  • Part B is general information and a health history.
  • Part C is your pre-participation physical certification completed by a certified and licensed physician.

Which part of the AHMR must I (or my Scout) complete?

  • For all Scouting events: Part A and B. Give the completed forms to your unit leader. This applies to all activities, day camps, local tours and weekend camping trips less than 72 hours.
  • For camp: Part A, B and C. A pre-participation physical is needed for resident, tour, or trek camps or for a Scouting event of more than 72 hours, such as Wood Badge and NYLT. The exam needs to be completed by a certified and licensed physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant. If your camp has provided you with any supplemental risk information, or if your plans include attending one of the four national high-adventure bases, share the venue’s risk advisory with your medical provider when you are having your physical exam.
  • For high-adventure trips: Part A, B and C. Plus, each of the four national high-adventure bases (Florida Sea Base, Northern Tier, Philmont and the Summit Bechtel Reserve) has provided a supplemental risk advisory that explains in greater detail some of the risks inherent in that program. Some Scouts arrive at a high-adventure base without discussing that base’s risk factors with their health care provider, meaning they have missing info at check-in that can slow down the process.

What is meant by “annual”?

Your AHMR is valid through the end of the 12th month after the date it was administered by your medical provider.

For example, if you got your physical on April 3, 2017, it’s valid until April 30, 2018.

Where can I find the proper, most up-to-date form?

Right here.

Cyber Chip Records

Effectively immediately,  

Cyber-Chip has been added to the scouts individual history reports. 

Each scout is REQUIRED to update their cyber chip annually. 

With the details now added to the reports, Scouts will now be able to review and determine if they need to update their cyber chip or not and they can then plan their training accordingly.   Mrs Ewen will have updated reports at the meeting on Tuesday, upon receipt of your reports, please review and if you have not completed this training please try to complete before our next COH.

Then each spring, please update your cyber chip.
