Wheeler PoolHow does the Provisional Camp Troop Work at Camp Somers?

At Camp Somers, a Provisional Camp Troop Scout will join one of the troops spending the week at Camp Somers. He will become a member of that troop and will be able to enjoy the companionship of other Scouts and participate with them in activities and merit badges.

Troop assignments are made one week prior to the arrival of your son. If your son wishes to be placed with a particular troop, it is the parentís responsibility to make such arrangements directly with that troopís leader prior to coming to camp. You must then contact Tom Stoddard at 973-347-3266 or 973-347-2240 one week prior to your sonís arrival. Otherwise the camp will place your son with an available troop, and that placement will be final.

If your son wishes to be placed with a particular Scout, please note this on your registration, or contact Tom Stoddard at 973-347-3266 or 973-347-2240 at least one week prior to arrival.
