2020 Summer Camp at Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp in Athens, TX

Posted by tmcsimov on Jun 15 2020 - 11:33am


When: June 21st - 27th, 2020
Where: Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp - Athens, TX

Troop 1776 is offering an option for an in-council Summer Camp at nearby Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp in Athens, TX.

Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp has nine weekend campsites with two large pavilions and 19 summer campsites complete with a dining hall, headquarters building, first aid lodge, swimming pool, waterfront, horses, the 60 ft. John Coffman Climbing Tower, the Roy & Frances Rea COPE Center, and many more traditional program areas. Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp is also home to a first class Museum of Natural History. A variety of wildlife trails, great fishing on all four lakes, rowboats, canoes, rifle, shotgun and archery ranges are available.

The fee for a youth is $285 weeks 1-3 and Maverick camp is weeks 4-5 for $300. Some of the merit badge classes have additional fees depending on what is selected.  

At this time we need $100 per scout and the full balance is extended to 5/29.

We need to have all merit badge classes registered by 5/28 for our Week3.

Regarding refunds the Troop will be refunded for up to 90% for an individual if there is a cancelation for a particular Scout. A refund has to be requested for a Scout prior to the Troop arriving for camp, this is done through phone or email request.  So it looks like we can request a refund up to several days prior to camp starting. Again this is going to be a 90% refund.

View the attached 2020 Camp Program Guide for more details.

Imagine 50,000 Scouts, Venturers, volunteers, and staff from all over the country, all gathered together for one big celebration of Scouting. Held once every four years, the national jamboree is a chance to camp out with friends, meet new friends, try high-adventure activities, learn new skills, and enjoy the outdoors. Over 10 days, there are exhibits, stadium shows with entertainment, opportunities to work on merit badges — there's something for everybody."  Watch the National Jamboree 2021 Mashup video here.

It is a tradition at Troop 1776 for as many scouts as possible to attend Jamboree, there were about 50 Scouts that attended in 2017.  The Troop posts information related to past Jamoboree's and the upcoming Jamboree here.
