Cost and Campership Information

  • The total cost for youth is $350. This includes transportation, camp fees, a cot, awards, and recognition patches.
  • Adults cost $75 to partially offset their camp cost.
  • Northern Star Council camperships may be applied by completing the new online Northern Star Scouting Campership form. The council will discount the cost up to $152 in 2021.
  • Troop 141 also has a scholarship fund available for active scouts who participate in troop fundraising. See Dave Bronson or Roger Hagerman for more information.

Advancement Opportunities

  • Each day has three merit badge sessions in the morning. These are when Scouts work on merit badges or other advancement.
  • Scouts going to Many Point for the first time should take First Class Adventure to jump-start their rank advancement.
    • First Class Adventure is held during sessions 1 and 2. First Class aquatics should be taken, but is an afternoon troop activity. First-year Scouts should choose a merit badge for session 3 only.
    • Session 3 merit badges to choose from:
      • Swim lessons (not a merit badge)
      • Archaeology
      • Emergency Preparedness
      • Leatherwork/Basketry (both badges)
      • Swimming (merit badge)
  • All merit badge books should be checked out from the Scout Room at Elim, or purchased at the Scout Shop. Read them before camp, and be sure to complete all prerequisites BEFORE CAMP. Note that some badges have extra costs and these fees should be sent with the Troop “banker”.

Equipment

What the Troop Provides

  • The troop has been maintaining cabin tents for use only at Many Point that each accommodate up to four Scouts. This allows us to leave the mosquito netting and frames at home! The large tents will give us plenty of storage and room to gather during downtime and inclement weather.
  • NOTE FOR 2021: With COVID-19 protocols being eased, Scouts will be using the large cabin tents as usual, with three Scouts per tent. If Scouts prefer (for COVID-related reasons) they may use a 1 or 4 person troop tent.
  • Adults may always bring their own tents or use a troop tent.
  • The troop also rents a cot for each Scout to sleep on at Many Point.

What Scouts Should Bring

  • Spending and meal money
    • This money should be in an envelope with your Scout’s name and total amount turned into the adult “banker”.
    • Cash will be accepted at the Trading Post, but a credit card or prepaid Visa gift card is recommended.
    • This will cover meals up and back, trading post snack, merit badge supplies, extra activity fees (such as tie-dyed shirts) and ammunition tickets.
  • Items on the personal camping gear list
  • NOTE FOR 2021: If your Scout does not plan on sleeping in the cabin tents, bring a sleeping pad or cot that will fit in a smaller tent (a low-profile cot would likely fit).

Equipment Notes

  • Each Scout should bring a 14-gallon Rubbermaid (or equivalent) tub to store personal gear in. These tubs are just the right size to slide under the cots.
  • Scouts may bring collapsible chairs to sit on.
  • Sunscreen should be spray-on and SPF 25+.
  • Mosquito repellent must be a lotion or pump spray only, NOT a can.
  • Fishing poles should not have hooks on them and should be broken down or in a case.

Prescription Drugs

All prescription drugs to be taken at camp should be turned into our medical officer. Medication should be in original containers and must include written directions.
