Troop 1 Lake Summit Weekend
August 16-18, 2024

In celebration of a successful first week of school Troop 1 will be camping at Lake Summit the weekend of August 16-18, 2024.  Scouts will have the opportunity to work on rank and merit badge advancement while spending a great day on the water.

Following breakfast Saturday morning we will spend the day engaging in lake activities.  Scouts will be able to complete requirements 5-7 of the Water Sports Merit Badge and the field portions of the Motorboating Merit Badge.  Scouts who attend should be ready to have some fun on the lake.  There will be plenty of lake “frolicking” time. 

Plan to be at the scout hut by 3:30 Friday afternoon and we will plan to return about 11:00 on Sunday morning so our scouts may rest up for those Monday morning school bells!  All scouts will travel in Class A uniform.  Since this trip is water related first year scouts will need to be accompanied by a parent or assigned guardian at least during the day on Saturday.  All scouts should bring a PFD marked with your name.  Everyone will be responsible for providing their own food and cooking except for Saturday lunch and dinner which will be provided by the troop.  Saturday night we will go South of the Border with a Mexican Fiesta.  Scouts should plan to bring tents as there is virtually no space for hammocks.   The cost for the weekend is $20 per scout and $10 per adult.  Scouts on this trip are expected to be in attendance from start to finish.

The physical address for camping is 115 Montgomery Dr., Saluda, NC 28773.
