Troop 285 loves camping.  With a 3-day, 2-night camping event nearly every month, week long Summer and Winter camps there is always an adventure to be had in the great outdoors.
It is recommended that each scout bring a snack for Friday night after setting up camp.  The troop has "Cracker Barrel" every Friday night after setting up camp.  This gives the boys time to hang out and the Scoutmasters a chance to go over the plan for the weekend. You can find approved snacks for Cracker Barrel here.


The BSA requires that your son's medical information be updated annually and kept on file by the Scout Master at any camping event.  If you or any siblings are going to family camp each person will need a medical form on file.   The links to the documents are provided here for your convenience.

Please use this four part form annually for your son and any family member who will participate in Summer and or Winter camps.  It includes the physical examination form to be filled out by your son's physician during his physical exam.

Please use this two part form  annually for yourself and any family member who will be participating in any scouting event including family camp.
