Sign up for Bartle 2021 is now live on the troop website. We need an accurate count of those that wish to attend so we can make our reservations accordingly. We will be submitting our requests for the draw in November and we will need to make the initial deposit payment at that time. We are bidding for either 3rd session July 6-15 or 4th session July 16-25. If you intend to attend Bartle this summer, please sign up now; spots will be limited. We will be asking for your deposit in the near future to cover the initial deposit. 

We expect the fee to be close to the 2020 fees( $550.00-$600.00 per person); exact fees will be posted as soon as available.

FREE WINTER CAMP!

Posted by pharris on Oct 19 2020 - 7:40pm

 

WE HAVE RECIEVED INFORMATION FROM CIRCLE TEN INDICATING THAT THIS YEARS POPCORN SALES TOTALING $250.00 OR MORE WILL ALLOW YOU TO ATTEND WINTER CAMP 2021 FOR FREE. THIS WILL NOT APPLY TO WINTER CAMP 2020
 
Who would like to attend this years Winter Camp for free!
 
Its easy just have your scout sell at least $250.00 in popcorn and they will receive free Winter Camp. The only fees you will need to pay are the troop fee for food etc. this drastically decreases the amount of money out of pocket. 
 
You can also use the $100.00 to pay for part of your scouts summer camp, if they attend one of the great Circle Ten Summer camps.
 
If your scout is planning to attend NYLT in 2021 you can use the $100.00 towards the registration fees.
 
Scouts can even sell popcorn online.  Email our Popcorn Kernel Stacy Hascoe at shascoe10@gmail.com if you need assistance with setting up your online account or if you need any other information. 

 

Service hours opportunity.
