Weekly Meetings, Campouts and other Activities
(meetings are held in the Carriage House at Jesse Lee unless noted)

Tuesday, June 6th, Swim Test for Camp Sequassen
Scouts and adults who are attending summer camp and have signed up for water activities at Camp Sequassen and Northern Tier are required to have passed a BSA swim test.  The troop has arranged to offer the test on Tuesday, June 6th at the Ridgefield Recreation Center Pool.  Sign up here.  Please be checked in, dressed in swim gear and ready to go on the pool deck at 7:30pm.  When signing up, indicate if the scout and/or adult is a Recreation Center member. The troop is charged a fee for each swimmer who is not a member.  This information will help keep track of what we owe.  Any camper who does not take the swim test on June 6 will be able to take it at Camp Sequassen during the camp tour on the first day.

Tuesday, June 13th, Spring Court of Honor
All Scouts and their families are invited to attend to celebrate the individual scout accomplishments.  Please sign up to bring food &  refreshments to this last official troop meeting before the start of the summer break.  (No snacks that contain peanuts or treenuts.)  Please bring items directly to the meeting on the 13th.  Sign up here.  Contact Nicole Genna with any questions: 203-512-0687

Friday, June 16 - Sunday, June 18.  The Annual Big Trip
At the conclusion of the scouting year (mid-June), the Troop offers a fun camping weekend where the adults prepare the meals.  This year, scouts voted to visit the Catskills region of New York state for 3 days and 2 nights of hiking, canoeing and other fun activities.  Please sign up here even if you signed up already. Parents are needed to help and join in the fun.

Summer Camp at Sequassen, July 16th - 22nd
Going forward, communications about Camp Sequassen will be via email regarding outstanding items, packing lists, chaperoning, drop off schedules, etc.  If you have already paid the camp fee, send in forms as soon as possible so that your Scoutís Merit Badge selections can be approved by the Scoutmaster and then entered into Sequassen's system.  Merit Badge sessions are filled on a first come basis and based on the class sizes set by Sequassen.  That's why it's important to act quickly.

Chaperone Sign Up Here.  So that our Scouts have a fun and safe camp experience, and to comply with BSA Youth Protection Rules, Troop 76 needs four adults present in camp at all times.  Families are required to chaperone, including camping overnight.  Parents must take Youth Protection Training in order to chaperone.  Our troopís success depends on parent help!  For detailed information on Camp Sequassen, here's a link to read or download the Leader's Guide.

Here are the forms due to Nicole Genna by May 23:
- Troop 76 Camper Information Form  (explains fees).  Completion is mandatory.
- Code of Conduct Form  Also mandatory.  Please download, print, read and fill in all the blanks.  Signature required.
- Merit Badge Selection Form  Scouts select what Merit Badges to take at Sequassen.  Not all badges are available to all scouts.  Read the MB prerequisites and note that some requirements can't be completed during the camp week.  Here's a link to the BSA web section on Merit Badges including the workbooks and requirements. 
- Medical Forms  Please read and follow the directions on the medical forms and all addendums.  There are portions that must be completed and signed by a medical doctor.

Nicole Genna is the troop's camp coordinator.  She may be contacted with any questions about Camp Sequassen, completing the forms, etc. nsgenna@comcast.net
