If you haven't paid your final Camp payment to Troop 216, please do so TODAY!  Amount due by March 22nd was $375 per scout.  The troop will determine Adult camp fee after May 15th.  Scouts that just bridged to the troop have until May 15th to make full payment of $525, and still take advantage of the Early Bird discount.  Can't decide whether you want to attend?  Scouts can still sign up to attend after these deadline dates, but will need to pay an additional $30.

TRICΔMP is a more than just a Merit Badge Camp.  Scouts will be able to fill their day with camp activities.  While a Scout will be able to successfully complete 3 – 4 Merit Badges, they will also gain the comradery of being at camp with their Troop and socializing with other Scouts.  Scouts will be able to participate in Flag Ceremonies, Campfires, Games, and many more camp-wide activities.  This program will bring some of the best elements of camp directly to your Scouts at home! 

Scouts will be able to register for single Clusters containing 3-4 Merit Badges to build a final class project. Each Cluster program will complete one large project relevant to the classes they complete. Class sizes are capped at 25 in order to maintain an exceptional classroom experience.  *Scouts must complete age-appropriate, current Cyber Chip.  Details and sign up can be found at https://tri-camp.org/.
