Summer Camp 2018

Troop 244,

Ransburg Scout Reservation

Ransburg Scout Reservation is the premier Scout camp in the Midwest. Nestled in the rolling hills of southern Indiana, the camp has

several miles of shoreline on Indiana’s largest freshwater lake, Lake Monroe. The beauty of the hardwood trees and lakefront create

one of Scouting’s most beautiful settings. Ransburg has 624 acres of secluded land and is surrounded by the Hoosier National Forest.

We will be attending Sunday July 8 - Saturday July 14, 2018

It is a great time to be outside with the boys, assisting them with advancement.  There is also an opportunity for you take leadership training course (self-paced) while the boys are in Merit badge Classes.  Talk to Mrs. Hill or Mr. Schutt for more details.

Annual Health and Medical Record

The Boy Scouts of America recommends that all youth and adult members have annual medical evaluations by a certified and licensed health-care provider. In an effort to provide better care to those who may become ill or injured and to provide youth members and adult leaders a better understanding of their own physical capabilities, the Boy Scouts of America has established minimum standards for providing medical information prior to participating in various activities. Those standards are offered below in one three-part medical form. 
NOTE: unit leaders must always protect the privacy of unit participants by protecting their medical information.
