Troop 99 Tenderfoot Weekend Camping Trip

Camp Yawgoog

Rockville, RI

Fri. April 08 – Sun. April 10, 2016

Our annual Tenderfoot Weekend will be held April 8-10 at Camp Yawgoog, in Rockville, RI. This trip is designed specifically to welcome new Scouts (and their parents) to the Troop, and to jump start their progress towards achieving Scout and Tenderfoot rank. Troop 99 does summer camp at Yawgoog, so this trip also serves as an introduction to Yawgoog.


Cost:

$20.00 / pp

Registration:

All Scouts must submit the following:

  • Signed Troop 99 Permission slip

  • At least one parent of each new Scout is required to attend this trip

Transportation:

We will meet in the dirt parking lot at the Franklin Rod & Gun Club at 6:30pm on Friday April 8. We will assign Scouts to carpools with adult leaders who are attending.

We will return to the Franklin Rod & Gun Club parking lot at (approx.) 10:45am on  Sunday April 10. (Scouts will call home on Sunday if we are arriving earlier, or later than planned.)

Meals:

Scouts will be cooking their own meals based on the Patrol Method. Each Scout in each Patrol will

have already been assigned a food, cooking or cleanup assignment based on a menu planner and

duty roster that they have previously completed. The Troop Guide, an Older Scout, will be assigned to help the New Scout Patrol through the weekend.

Adults/Old Goats will similarly eat together as a Patrol.
