Summer Camp - Camp Buck Toms, Smoky Mountains, Tennessee
July 5-13

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! The camp offers all the comforts of a typical Scout Camp, plus some exciting surprises for all! For Second year and more experienced Scouts, merit badge class signup begins in late January, and all signups should be set up for non-first year Scouts by mid-February. There are High Adventure Options for experienced Scouts. Total cost is expected to be around $300, plus fees for merit badges and transportation.

Deposit of $100 is due on Feb 10th. January Millennium has more details and can be found here.

Adults wishing to attend Summer Camp should notify Rick Diamond to let him know of their interest and availability.
