Kia Kima Outpost Camp--June 9-15, 2013
Old Kia Kima in Hardy, Arkansas.......this is the highlight of every scouting year for Troop 55. A full week of scouting, camping, cooking (and eating), swimming, canoeing, laughing and growing. This is where the most lasting memories of a boy's scouting years in our troop are made. We always try to keep the cost affordable....$220....for food, lodging, programing and even transportation to and from Arkansas. Please see attachments below for camp and registration information. Registration deadline is May 13th. You can register by turning in the class sign-up sheet and $220 (checks made out to Troop 55) to Russ Parham or Andrew Sottek or mailing to Andrew Sottek 111 Foxwood Lane Franklin, TN 37069.

Boxwell Summer Camp--June 30-July 5, 2013
Boxwell Scout Reservation is the Middle Tennessee Council's own private 1100 acre camp in Gallatin, TN. This camping opportunity is probably geared a little less toward adventure and more towards advancement. Scouts can sleep in hammocks by the water's edge on Old Hickory Lake or in platform tents and enjoy three square meals/day in the dining hall instead of having to prepare and cook all of their meals. This gives scouts the opportunity to spend more time towards advancement with over 60 classes offered to help scouts advance in rank over the summer. The early-bird cost is $205 (checks made out to BSA) if registration is paid by May 13th.....otherwise, the cost is $230. Registration can be handled through Russ Parham during troop meetings.
