Summer Camp/Thunderbase

Summer camp

During the November planning meetings the scouts voted as a troop to attend summer camp at Cole Canoe Base in Michigan.  Scouts will leave on Sunday, June 17th and return on Saturday, June 23rd.

Cole Canoe Base is a 1,440 acres along the banks of the Rifle River in Ogemaw County, Michigan.  It looks like an amazing camp with a vast array of opportunities.  They offer a traditional summer camp program, a high adventure program for our older scouts and a first year program for our brand new scouts.  You can visit their website for more information.

Cost per scout is $330.  Cost for adult leaders is $160.

If your scout is planning on going, we need a $50 deposit by the end of this month.  Please turn in your deposit to Lee Spangenberg.


Thunderbase is coming the weekend of May 4th   at the Ross County Fairgrounds.  Thunderbase only comes around every few years and is always a scout favorite.  There are activities going on all weekend including concerts and fireworks.

On November 27th SKC announced a one day Cyber Monday special.  The following scouts and parents expressed interest in going and the troop has paid for their reservation:

David, Martin, Kyle, Nick C, Gabe, Alex, Jeremy, Noah S, Noah F, Ean, Brian I, Garrett I, Sam, Tony, Christian, Chase, Nick S, Michael, Aidan, Michelle L, Roman, Brian, Chad, Lee

We need to collect $45 from each of the individuals above which covers both admission and campsite food.  For anyone else interested in going, the cost would be $55.  Please contact Lee Spangenberg.
