  3. Two MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccines are required for camp. Please check to ensure that your child has them.
  4. You can include a copy of your child’s medical printout form from your doctor. It is not a substitute for the BSA Summer Camp Medical, but in addition too.
  5. The OTC (Over the Counter) form must be prepared whether your child takes medication or not. This form must be signed by a doctor
  6. You must prepare the Meningococcal Meningitis Vaccination Response Form.

Please scan these forms and email ([email protected]) them to me. You can mail them to me; ask for my address. I do not want the originals and you should keep them in case we need them. I will review them and let you know if they are correct.

If you send the medical forms to me, I will be responsible for bringing them to camp and seeing your child through the camp’s Medical Re-Check; where they review the forms, ask your child a few questions about how they are feeling and a temperature check. If you do not send me the medical forms, you will have to stay in camp until after the camp’s Medical Re-Check in case there is a problem with the forms.

Last Summer Camp Medical Post

Hello Everyone,

We are just over two (2) short months away from summer camp. This will be my last post about summer camp medicals. Please take the time to read this post and ask me any questions you might have. On Sunday, August 7, the first day of camp, at check in time; the camp does a review of the medicals. If there are any problems with your medical, there are no medical offices open, in the area, to the medical prepared. Lets fix any issues with the medical now before we get to camp.

Everyone planning on going to summer camp this year must fill out the Summer Camp Medical attached. Adults and Youth are required to prepare this medical. Please do not look online for a summer camp medical and prepare that one. The link below will take you to the form. Please click on the “green” button that says “BSA Medical for Ten Mile River Scout Camps”. The one attached is the new medical form for 2022. That doesn’t mean BSA or GNYC won’t change it in the future, but for now this is the updated one.

Things to remember:

  1. We are Pathfinder District
  2. Remember to add your medical insurance information to the form where required and provide photocopies of your insurance card, front and back.
  3. Two MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccines are required for camp. Please check to ensure that your child has them.

  5. The OTC (Over the Counter) form must be prepared whether your child takes medication or not. This form must be signed by a doctor
  6. Please read the form about the Covid vaccine and fill out the form accordingly. We have yet to receive information on whether or not campers will be required to be vaccinated to go to camp.
  7. You must prepare the Meningococcal Meningitis Vaccination Response Form.

Please scan these forms and email ([email protected]) them to me. You can mail them to me; ask for my address. I do not want the originals and you should keep them in case we need them. I will review them and let you know if they are correct. I upload them to the Troop’s Google Drive so they are available for the Troop Leadership throughout the year. I delete the old ones every year.

If you send the medical forms to me, I will be responsible for bringing them to camp and seeing your child through the camp’s Medical Re-Check; where they review the forms, ask your child a few questions about how they are feeling and a temperature check.

Last Chance to Register for 2022-2023

Hello Everyone,

In the next week, we will be submitting our Charter and registering everyone for 2022-2023. If you are interested in keeping your registration with Troop 106, please bring a check for $45.00 (Adults) and $100 (Youth) to Friday night’s meeting or drop it off at Henry’s house. If you owe us paperwork, either the Criminal Background Check (CBC) or Youth Protection Training (YPT) please also provide those documents.

If we do not receive the above, we will assume you are no longer interested in being a member of Troop 106 and you will be removed from the charter.

If you wish to remain a member but for some reason are unable to provide the documents or payment, please speak to me or Anthony.

Edit: There seems to be confusion about the above paperwork mentioned in the post above. The required paperwork is for adults who wish to be members of the Troop and not for youth members. Sorry for the confusion.

GNYC Campership Form

Earlier this week I posted the The Suanhacky Campership Association Campership Form. GNYC has since posted their Campership form and its and online form. The link for it is below.

If your planning on going to summer camp, and I hope everyone does, please fill out both forms. Do not assume you earn too much in order to receive a campership.

https://nycscouting.org/campership/

Summer Camp Campership from The Suanhacky Campership Association

This is an email I received from The Suanhacky Campership Association. It is a campership for Queens Scouts only to go to summer camp. Please fill it out and submit it according to the instructions in the email.

Dear Queens Scouter,

The Suanhacky Campership Association has been providing campership assistance to Queens Council Boy Scouts for over 36 years. Our mission is to help make every Queens Scout a Camper by helping to give our Queens Scouts the opportunity to enjoy the wonders of the great outdoors at Ten Mile River Scout Camps, by way of financial assistance.

This year we are doing something different by asking those that might require campership assistance to complete the attached Suanhacky Campership  application

Please be assured that we do not and will not share any information on the campership application.

The application be sent via email to [email protected]

or via mail to:

Suanhacky Campership Association

64-34 99th Street, Apt.2A

Rego Park, NY 11374

Please note that the filing deadline is April 30, 2022. Camperships will be issued on a first come first application received.

2022 Registration Fee Now Due

Hello All,

The Registration Fee for 2022 is due. February is the month that the Boy Scouts of America sends us a bill (Charter) to register our unit. The current cost is $100.00 per youth member and $42.00 per registered adult member/leader.

If for some reason you do not pay the registration fee, we CAN NOT register you and you will be dropped from the Charter. If you want to remain on the Charter, but you can not afford the current fee, please see either Anthony or myself for help. We will never turn away someone who wants to be in Scouting but the cost is prohibitive.

If you are interested in being an adult leader with the Troop, either as an Assistant Scoutmaster or a Committee Member, please let Anthony or myself know so we can get an application to you and get you on the Charter by next month.

Any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me anytime.
