COVID-19 Health Protocols for this Troop Activity will be announced in advance of this Campout, as they are determined.
Campout dates: Aug 21 - 23, 2020
Registration will close on Mon, Aug 17th at 11am
Activity fee: TBA [rentals for canoes, paddles, and life vests]
Annual Swim Test is required. If you passed a swim test at a 2020 Summer Camp that will count. If you have not had a swim test after Aug 22nd, 2019 then you must be re-tested. Troop 230 plans to conduct a swim test in early Aug. The date will be announced.
Troop 230 will return to the beautiful cool waters of the San Marcos River in San Marcos, TX for its annual canoeing adventure. The Troop will camp at the San Marcos River Retreat campground. Scouts and adult leaders will paddle from San Marcos City Park to the Troop's campsite for an approximate 6hr tour on the river which includes a stop at the fan favorite Rio Vista Whitewater Park. The Troop will eat lunch on the river.
Scouts will be allowed to use their own tent or hammock if they desire. NOTE: If a scout intends to use their own tent or hammock, they must know how to set it up on their own. An adult or other scout will be able to assist the scout, if needed. PLEASE do not send your son with a tent or hammock that's never been taken out of the box...
Scouts will meet at the Scout House (in Class A uniform) at 5:30pm on Friday, Aug 21st to load the troop trailer. The troop will not stop for dinner while driving to the campsite.
