During our campout, we are planning to go canoeing on Chambers Lake. We will have Coast Guard certified personal floatation devices (PFDs) to wear, but if you have your own PFD, you may prefer to bring it. ALL participants in canoeing will be required to wear PFDs, regardless of age or swimming ability.
Deadline to register is Sunday, April 9. This allows leaders and volunteers to prepare food and activities for all. Make sure to indicate any allergies or special needs on the registration form.
Please remember that ALL adults at camp must complete background clearances. This means that parents/guardians who wish to attend must either register with the scout group in advance as Rovers or Non-Rover Adult Support, or provide their 3-part PA background checks as explained at https://64thbrandywine.org/members/clearances-background-checks/. This ensures that all adults at the campout—not just leaders—have had background clearances. If you have any questions about the policy, or to confirm your status, please contact please contact the Group Scoutmaster as soon as possible.
If you have any other questions or concerns, see your section leader or contact the Group Scoutmaster. Signup using the registration form below!
