Trip To Maine – August 2017
This year, we will be going to Camp Roosevelt in Eddington, ME, leaving around noon on Wednesday, August 9. Thursday will be spent in Acadia National Park, exploring all the park has to offer from hiking and biking trails to visiting Sandy Beach and enjoying the Atlantic Ocean. On Friday, we will be at Blackbeards USA to enjoy the miniature golf, batting cages, and go karts. This will be followed by bowling, dinner out, and a movie. Saturday will focus on advancement and program in camp, enjoying the natural beauty of Camp Roosevelt. We will return late in the day on Sunday, August 13.
The final cost will be finalized in the weeks before summer camp begins, but I anticipate that it will land at approximately $90/Scout. Scouts can certainly use Scout account funds to pay for this trip. I would like to get an idea at our annual pool party of who is planning on attending. The more Scouts we have participating, the lower the cost of the trip for everyone, as we will be able to better spread out our fixed expenses (like transportation and Camp Roosevelt rental).
