2013-03-02, 

Welcome new scouts!  Troop 271 is very happy to have you join us.  We are a very active group, and there are lots of activities to keep your boys interested.   Each year the boys select a summer camp to attend.  This year’s outing will be at Camp Whitsett, a Boy Scout Camp in the Giant Sequoia National Monument, twenty-seven miles north of Kernville.  So far, twenty-three boys from Troop 271 have signed on to go from July 14-20.   Camp Whitsett provides a safe, well supervised environment for our boys.  It has excellent facilities, and a five-acre lake provides an opportunity for kayaking, swimming, canoeing, and fishing.  The camp offers over twenty traditional merit badges for all ages of scouts. We will be discussing Camp Whitsett at our next scout meeting, Tuesday March 5.  If you would like to check out their web site, I encourage you to go to http://www.campwhitsett.org/home-page/.
 
The estimated cost of camp is $450.
 
Thanks!
Alan Turken, ASM and Summer Camp Coordinator

2012-12-11, Camp Whitsett Roster & Payment Schedule.  Payment #1 Due January 1st.

Hi All,

If your son is planning on attending camp this summer, please read the attached notice carefully.  Payment #1 for Camp Whitsett is due by January 1st.

Based on feedback from scouts and parents, we have registered our troop for the week of July 12 - July 20, 2013,  The following boys have signed up to attend Camp Whitsett.

We were able to take advantage of the "early bird registration special" with 20+ participants; however, this means the troop must make our first payment to the camp on January 4th.  Please make this payment (you can do so at the Holiday Party, Activity Table, or by mail) PRIOR to January 1, as we must then post the payment to the camp.  Payments are non-refundable from the camp.
...
Payments may be made by check (make out to Troop 271).  If you wish to use scout account funds, please use the attached form to request use as a camp payment.  Direct payments to: Alan Turken.

*** Camperships are also available - please see Troop Scholarship and scroll down for application form. ***

Lynne Bradley

PS:  Scout account use form to follow soon.



2012-11-27, Troop meeting, Activity table

Contact: Lynne Bradley

If you intend to attend summer camp, please sign up at the Activity Table or contact Lynne Bradley by email by November 28th. If you are unsure, please contact Ms. Bradley by the 27th so she is aware of your interest, obstacles, and questions. If we register the troop prior to December 1st, we receive a significant discount. In order to take advantage of this offer and pass the savings onto you, we need to have a pretty accurate count of scouts participating in summer camp by November 29th.



2012-11-13, Troop meeting, vote for summer camp

Troop 271 Scouts have chosen Camp Whitsett as their 2013 summer camp.  Cost will depend on the number of scouts who will be attending; but we estimate that it will be between $450 - $490.  Check out Camp Whitsett at the link below attached to this email.  A copy of the 2012 Camp Whitsett Leaders Guide will be posted on the troop website (to be replaced with the 2013 version when available).  This resource will give you additional information about the activities available at Whitsett.
