Scouting Journal 7/1/2019

Adventures in Scouting looks to be great fun! Using my map and compass I have set my heading to the Summit Bechtel Reserve in Glen Jean, WV. Arrival time is scheduled for Friday, October 11th, 2019 any time after 4pm. I plan on staying until Sunday, October 13th, 2019 around 11am. The fee is one of the best around at only $20 per person but I REALLY must let them know I am attending by October 2nd before 11:59pm to lock in that great price! If I let them know I’m attending on or after that I have to pay $30 per person.  Hmmm, this fee is higher than normal…I need to investigate this…

I found a handy adventure guide with all necessary instructions and equipment requirements on the council website at and clicked the Council Family Camp – Scouting Adventures of Buckskin Council link under Top Stories or I can contact Colleen Sergent (see below) to have one emailed to me. I’m super excited that MEALS ARE INCLUDED this year so I don’t need to bring my camp kitchen gear! The handy adventure guide has the menu listed but I need to let them know of any food allergies/dietary needs ASAP so they can plan for what I need to eat.

Scouting Journal 7/3/2019

As I read my handy adventure guide I discovered I must register EVERYONE who is coming to camp – not just me and not just my scouts. I also found to my horror camp is limited to the first 600 registered participants.  I must register NOW to reserve my spot!  It also said if I need help with registration to please contact Colleen (see below) or the scout office at 304-340-3663.

My guide has information about the fun activities I get to do at camp which include playing in the Sustainability Treehouse, Geocaching, a Fishing Derby, BBs and Archery, Hiking, an Obstacle Course, games and the annual Trick or Treating Extravaganza followed by a campfire program.  I’m sure other surprise activities will happen.
