The trip is from Friday, June 24 through Sunday June 26th. We will meet at the parish center at 9AM. We will return for pick up at the parish center by 2PM on Sunday. We will stop for fast food lunches on the way up and back, but scouts are welcome to bring a bag lunch if they prefer. Scouts also need to bring all the typical items that are found on the Troop 4 camping equipment list. The list is available on our website.
As we did two years ago, we will be using the Adventure Bound outfitters. They will provide the boats, wetsuits, all equipment, and even the expert guides that will ride in each boat. Friday is a travel day to our “resort” campsite, complete with pool, hot tub, game and movie rooms. Saturday is whitewater day. Our river course follows the Kennebec River. The outfitter provides lunch on the river. Monday is our return trip home. Scouts will be cooking patrol-style using camping stoves. Patrols will plan their meals at the May 26th troop meeting. The adult leader “Pedro Patrol” will also begin meal planning soon, and will contact all attending adults with a grocery assignment.
Final payments are due at the May 26th troop meeting. Please make check payable to Troop 4. Amount due per person is tentatively $85, less what you have paid to date. Also, please complete the attached permission slip, to provide us with emergency contact info, and so that we can start planning the transportation.
Please note that all participants also need a completed and signed waiver form. The form will be available with the normal Troop 4 permission slip.
If you son will be attending the June whitewater trip, please return the permission slip and waiver, and return it to the Troop Scribe at the May 26th troop meeting (earlier is better). If your son would like to attend but won’t be at the meetings when forms and payments are due, please call or email Brian Weber. We will need a few parents to help with the driving to this event. If you can help out please indicate on the permission slip.
