Scouts who did not complete their swim test at the Rivi with the First-Year Scouts or make up an alternate test date on their own (and would like to swim at camp), need to arrive at Ransburg wearing their swim suit and bring a towel. These scouts will be required to take their swim test after check-in. Parents of Scouts who did not complete the swim test at Rivi MUST stay with their son for the duration of the swim test at Ransburg and return to them to Mr. Hernandez. Scouts that have taken their swim test on one of the two dates listed above will proceed to set up camp.
$295 per scout**
Please make checks payable to BSA Troop 174
Submit check with other forms to Mr. Kolb or Mr. Hernandez NO LATER THAN MONDAY, APRIL 8TH
**NOTE Some Merit Badges require the scout to purchase some items at the Trading Post. For instance, Rifle Shooting carries a fee for ammunition, Metalworking requires purchase of the metals project kit, etc. The amounts for each are listed in the “Notes and Prerequisites” column of the Activity Schedule, on ransburgbsa.org. Please send your scout to camp with enough cash for these purchases, over and above whatever spending money he will use for the week.

Parents Camp Sign Up
In order to provide the opportunity for our Scouts to attend Camp Ransburg, it is essential for parents of scouts attending to make a commitment to spend 1-2 days at camp to help supervise. This is not a difficult duty, it just requires a couple days of your time. We expect to have a large group of scouts this year, requiring that we have at least 5-6 adults present at camp at all times throughout the week, maintaining a ratio of 1 adult to 8 scouts. We cannot attend camp without this commitment. When you receive the email asking the parents of attending scouts to come help, please indicate what days and overnights you can attend to help out. As you plan your calendar, please keep in mind the our greatest need is often through the middle of the week (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday), so if you can be in camp for one or more of those dates, it is especially helpful.
All prescription medications are stored at the troop’s campsite in the original container in a secure box. To facilitate the check-in process, all medications should be put in clear zip lock bag with a completed copy of the Troop 174 Medication Form inside the bag.. Do not pack medications, but rather have the scout put them in his pocket. Meds are turned in to the dad in charge of the meds first thing Sunday during the check-in process. Meds are distributed by the dad in charge of the meds at appropriate times. Inhalers, EPI pens and heart medications will be kept by the Scout or leader at the discretion of the Ransburg Health Officer. FORWARD ANY DIETARY RESTRICTIONS TO ERIC HERNANDEZ BY MONDAY, APRIL 9.
Required Health Forms for Camp
Parts A, B and C are required for all scouts and adults planning to attend Camp Ransburg.
Parts A and B were completed at the beginning of the Scout Year, so it is not necessary to fill out those forms again. We will obtain a copy of that form from Troop 174 leadership.
Part C is required with Parts A and B for any event that exceeds 72 consecutive hours, a resident camp setting (such as Camp Ransburg), or when the nature of the activity is strenuous and demanding, such as service projects, work weekends, or high-adventure treks. It is to be completed and signed by a certified and licensed health-care provider—physician (MD, DO), nurse practitioner, or physician’s assistant, so make your appointment now. We cannot overemphasize this enough. Every year, parents wait too long to schedule an appointment only to find that their doctors only schedule physicals on certain days, making it difficult to submit the completed Part C by the beginning of camp. You may be able to get this examination completed more quickly at an Urgent Care Center or Med Check if it becomes necessary.
To help with this requirement, doctors in the Troop Committee graciously offer free physicals once a year, prior to the ski trip. The specific dates will be announced on the news page as the time approaches. They will complete Form C and sign; the form is good for all events for a one-year period.
