At this time deposits for summer camp-$25.00 -along with campership applications are due at this time. Please do not fill out the section on campership application where it asks for check number, all checks are to be made out to Troop 23.


To All Parents,

On all camping trips a shortened medical must be filled out. This is called Part A and Part B medical. This is not medical form needed to be filled out by a doctor. It is not to be confused with medical for summer camp which does have to include doctors visit. If you have already filled one out and turned it in then you don’t need to fill out another one. For those who have not turned in Part A and Part B medical and are attending next camping trip please fill it out and bring with permission slip and fee on Nov 16th. Any questions or concerns please contact me. This is the link to thePart A and B medical form.

Thank You,

Tom Kramer



Just a reminder – we must retrain in Youth Protection every two years.  Please be sure to go on line and take this 20-30 minutes course.  It is very important that this requirement be met.
Also, we can not list members on the charter if they have not also taken the church VIRTUS training.  If you have not taken this one time training, please arrange to take this training as soo
n as possible.
As soon as you have done either of the above, be sure to send a copy of your certificate to Tom Kramer or me.
