First Year Camper program

The First Year Camper (FYC) program is for young Scouts who may be attending summer camp for the very first time or need help in working on Tenderfoot, Second Class or First Class Advancement.

There are five basic goals for the FYC Scouts program: 
1. To provide a well-organized program based upon the patrol method and lead by qualified instructors. 
2. To teach participants basic skills necessary to succeed in Scouting and to enjoy outdoor programs. 
3. To instill in the boy a respect for Scouting’s methods and ideals. 
4. To maintain a ratio that is comparable to an average patrol: eight-ten boys for every patrol guide/instructor. 
5. To provide an exciting and memorable summer camp experience that motivates boys to be active in their troops and continue in Scouting. 

While in the first year program Scouts will cover a vast majority of the basic rank advancement requirements (except for troop participation requirements, Scoutmaster Conferences & Boards of Review).

Scouts should complete the following requirements: 

Tenderfoot requirements: 1, 2, 3, 4a, 4b, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12a, 12b, 13 

Second Class requirements: 1a, 2, 3b, 3c, 3d, 3e, 3f, 4, 5, 6, 7a, 7b, 7c, 8a, 8b, 11 

First Class requirements: 1, 2, 4a, 4c, 4d, 6, 7a, 7b, 8a, 8b, 8c, 8d, 9a, 9b, 9c, 11, 12 

On Thursday night Scouts will depart for an overnight off-site campout to complete the camping requirements for Tenderfoot Reg. # 1, 2 & 3 and 2nd Class Reg. # 3b. Remember not schedule your FYC Scouts for Thursday night twilights. 

What to Bring? 
All Scouts should bring a Boy Scout Handbook 12th edition, pocketknife, rain gear, water bottle (two would be best), flashlight, backpack suitable for hiking with gear, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, ground cloth, 2-man tent (if available from troop), spoon, drinking cup, small unbreakable bowel/plate, & items to make a first aid kit (1st Aid MB reg. # 2b ).

Mail is a "silver bullet" for improving morale and combating home sickness!  If you plan to send a care package to your scout, make sure that you mail this the Saturday (at the latest) BEFORE the boys leave.  Please keep the sweets and goodies to a minimum.  They'll have to eat/share all that they get that day (we don't want critters looking to "share" during the night).  
Letters should be mailed out SATURDAY to arrive Tues/Weds at camp.
