Camping Summary

Troop 16 Camps outdoors 11 months out of the year.  The December Lock-in is a one night indoor event.

Summer Camp is scheduled in June or July, depending on the destination.

Campouts are adventures appropriate for the entire troop and open to all registered scouts and scouters. Certain camping experiences or activities organized within a campout may be limited by rank, age, or demonstration of specific skills or certification.

Any campout longer than 72 hours in duration requires Parts A B and C of the BSA medical form to be completed. Part C requires a physical exam and must be signed by a physician. Forms are valid within one year of the signature. A copy of your insurance card should be attached to each individual form.  All other campouts and activities require only parts A and B to be completed. The Colorado Camp Addendum page may be required for camps in Colorado.  All adults that wish to camp must be registered with BSA and have current Youth Protection Training and provide the proper medical forms and immunization records.  Adults must also provide the transportation coordinator a copy of their driver’s license and evidence of car  insurance information.
