This year's New Scout Campout will be held March 13-15 at our usual New Scout campout location: Drum Point Club in Lusby, MD. Yes, it's that photogenic.

We will focus on helping new Scouts learn some basic camping skills and getting all requirements for Scout rank. Camping skills will include firebuilding, safe use of knives/axes, setting up tents/tarps, cooking, KP and others, as time permits.

Attendance at this campout is HIGHLY recommended for bridging Scouts, and for First Class/Star/Life Scouts needing leadership and active-in-troop participation.

We'll follow our normal routine and try to leave the CUMC parking lot as close to 5pm as possible.  Please show up at 4:45, especially the Patrol leaders.  Remember to bring a bagged dinner on Friday night. We'll return around noon on Sunday.

Camping fees are $12.25/person. Grubmaster fees are $20 for Scouts and $25 for adults.  Scouts, pay your grubmasters cash in the parking lot before we depart. Please email your signed Scouts BSA permission slip to Cliff Stevens at

NEW SCOUTS: Come with a backpack with camping essentials. A checklist can be found on page 268 in your Scout book with all the essentials listed out for you--the Scout Basic Essentials, sleeping gear, eating gear, and cleanup gear. (All essentials under "Group Camping Gear Checklist" are provided by the troop, such as tents, stoves, etc.) This is also the first Tenderfoot requirement, and can be easily achieved at this campout by following the checklist.
