Goshen Scout Reservation Camp Marriott - Summer 2023!
Scout Summer Camp is a great opportunity for fun and merit badges. This year, we’ll be going to Goshen Scout Reservation Camp Marriott (www.gotogoshen.org/camps-programs/camp-marriott/) in Virginia on June 25 - July 1, 2023. Camp Marriott offers camping for 425 participants and includes an extensive aquatics program including sailing, canoeing, kayaking, rowing, and the ever popular water sports merit badge. Also of note is the ecology area, where there is an ever-changing zoo to showcase the flora and fauna of Goshen. Camp Marriott is located near great hiking trails, and offers the option of Patrol Cooking or Heater Stack dining options.
Please register at t255.org as soon as possible, with a deposit of $100. Payment in full after mulch credits are calculated, by check payable to BSA Troop 255, is required by the appropriate deadline.
• Early Discount Price ($30 off) per youth: $505 if deposit made before April 14
• Regular Price Price per youth: $535 if deposit made between April 14 and May 13
• Late Registration Price ($40 more) per youth: $575 if deposit made after May 13
These costs are based on a conservative estimate of 24 Scouts. But if fewer than 24 Scouts register there may be a small surcharge. (NOTE: There is an additional charge of about $50 for ATV and Shotgun Shooting Merit badge.)
Troop 255 is looking for adult volunteers to join some experienced hands at Goshen Scout Reservation Camp Marriott. Adult volunteers can split a week with another adult if that works best. Troop 255 strives to cover the cost of adult volunteers attending Goshen ($265 each paid by the Troop) but may ask for a small surcharge from each adult attending if the number of adults volunteering exceeds the budget as happened last year.
All Scouts and Leaders must have their BSA Annual Health & Medical Record with NCAC Advisory (see link below) with updated doctor’s signature before going to camp. The Troop 255 Summer Camp Leader will collect all forms prior to departure, but they are not required for registration.
