New message from Jim Lasher’s Troop 349 class

Important end of scout year information: Hello Troop 349 families, Please note these updates about troop upcoming activities: Yawgoog Summer Camp: This year for summer camp, rather than bringing us copies of medical forms, Yawgoog is participating in an online system called CampDoc where you upload the necessary information. As admins, we can see the status of everyone’s submissions. The email to register comes from “Narragansett Council, BSA via CampDoc ” If you did not receive this email, please let us know asap. We were just informed that there were issues with the system. Those who were already uploading documents need to check if any data was lost. Here are some details needed to complete the Camp Docs forms: We are from Suffolk County Council #404. Your Scout’s BSA ID is found in Scoutbook. For Authorized Adults use: James Lasher, 631-764-6303, 27 Garvey Drive, Hauppauge, NY 11788. For additional adults, use Tom Keenan, 631-672-9707 and Mike Wichtendahl, 631-484-7343. For Scouts 14-17, Yawgoog is offering an opportunity to learn to ride ATV’s again this summer. This takes the place of a merit badge class for the week, but this is not a merit badge. It is offered as a lottery, and chosen scouts will pay 50 dollars for the class if selected. Sign up or learn more on their website now, The deadline is Saturday, May 20. Yawgoog payments: Final payments for summer camp are due on May 24. Contact Mr. Lasher or Mrs. Weisberg for your balance.
