Summer Camp - Camp Buck Toms, Smoky Mountains, Tennessee
This will be Troop 1000's first visit to Tennessee's Smoky Mountains area Camp Buck Tom's. Camping will be in a unique bunk-bed style "open" cabin (called an Adirondack) - so no cots are needed this year!

If you can spare some time, the Troop needs some Grand Volunteers for a few annual tasks.
For our twice a year Garage Sales, we need additional coordinators and day-of volunteers to help with collection, set-up and overall coordination. If you can help, please contact Patty King at 972-973-1678.
It’s that time again, and all Scouts and Scouters need to turn in their annual medical forms. Parts A & B must be received or renewed (adult can sign the forms indicating no changes) before our first campout. Part C (requiring Doctor’s signature) can be turned in anytime between now and the Summer Camp Medical Forms deadline early this summer. To aid in the collection process, we could use one assistant to help out on Monday nights to file and check-off those received and help track down those we do not have. Contact Carolyn Linscott, at email@example.com
Adults wishing to attend Summer Camp should notify Rick Diamond to let him know of their interest and availability.
