Getting to Camp
As usual, we will be driving to camp. The drive is expected to be 19 hours each way. Once we have a final headcount for camp, we will finalize the plans for the trip. This year, we are discussing leaving a 1/2 day early (on Friday) to get some of the driving out of the way and allow for shorter drive times on Saturday and Sunday. This will also allow us to give the Scouts some free time each night and/or to plan in some fun activity to help break up the drive. We realize two back to back 9-10 hour driving days is taxing on the Scouts (and the adults). We can discuss this more when we have our summer camp info meeting.
As in years past, we plan on looking for fun places to stop along the way and we will be working with the Scouts to have them help set the itinerary for the trip.
Transportation/lodging/meal costs will include all costs of getting your Scout to and from camp. We will be staying in a hotel the first night (or two) on the way up to camp depending on when we leave. On the return trip, we will be staying in campgrounds along the route.
