Summers at Camp Webster
Camp Webster, located in Ashford, Connecticut is where Troop 13 spends one week during the summer. Together we work on Merit Badges, have fun swimming and boating, camp activities and enjoy the outdoors.
Dates: June 25-30, 2017. Please note change in date, due to the large number of Scouts & Mr. Rutty attending the 2017 National Jamboree from Troop 13 during our traditional week. As a bonus this week at camp is also Trail to Eagle week with extra Eagle Required merit badges being offered that are not usually available during our regular camp week. We will most likely go back to a July date in 2018.
Registration Forms: Please fill out a registration form and submit your deposit by March 1, 2017 to Mike Rutty.
Medical Forms: The only medical form accepted is the CRC 2017 Boys Scouts of America Medical Form. The new medical form, Medication Administration Form and Allergy Form is available below. Medical forms are due by June 1, 2017. If your son’s forms will be later than June 1, 2017 please let Mr. Rutty know the details. Do not wait on medical forms to submit registration form & payment please.
Fees: Total Fee is $405.00 - This Year a $50 deposit paid by March 1 is required to obtain the lowest camp fee of $405.00 per Scout - with final payment due by May 1, 2017 - Not paying the $50 deposit by March 1 or the balance by May 1, 2017 will increase the cost increases to $480.00. Please make all checks payable to “Troop 13” - Credit Cards can be processed by filling out information on the registration form and submitting to Mr. Rutty.
Special Fee for Scouts going to 2017 National Jamboree: For Scouts attending the National Jamboree this summer, can attend summer camp for a special fee of only $305.00 because summer camp will be considered a second week getting the $100 discount.
Financial Assistance: If you are applying for financial assistance please submit the Troop 13 Registration Form to Mr. Rutty and let him know you have submitted a campership application. All information is held confidential. There are a limited amount of camperships available from CT Rivers Council BSA. Camperships are rarely over 50% of camp fees. Connecticut Rivers Council will require a copy of the front page of a family’s most recent Form 1040 in addition to the campership application. This practice is consistent with other major institutions providing camperships, allows the council to make an informed, needs-based decision, and improve their ability to support those Scouts who truly need assistance. More information and the on-line application can be found at the Campership Application link noted below.
Parents Meeting: A very important parents meeting will be held at 7:00 PM - Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at the Scout Shack at which time payments for the Friday Night BBQ and Troop camp photos will be due.
