October – Ropes Course / Scout Skills Campout @ Sandy Spring Adventure Park
Oct 20 @ 6:00 pm – Oct 22 @ 9:30 am

What:   Ropes Course / Scout Skills Camping – three hour climb that includes ropes, climbing, and zipline.

When: Friday, October 20, 2017 at 6:00pm (meet at Trailside before 5:30) till Sunday, October 22, 2017 around 9:30am (return to Trailside)

Where: The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring, 16701 Norwood Rd., Sandy Spring, MD 20860. The bathrooms/porta johns are next to the parking lot. Wheel barrows are provided to get stuff to site which is not far from the parking lot (I'll clarify distance).  

Price:   $60 per person (scouts and adults) – This cost includes the discounted $38 fee for the ropes course.

Maximum people for trip: 40 (register, pay and get in forms early as the cut-off is 40 people OR two weeks and a day prior to the camp-out; whichever occurs first).

Meals: The cost includes 3 meals on Saturday, and Sunday breakfast. Eat before leaving on Friday or bring something to eat when you arrive at the camp.  

As we’ll be leaving at 6:00pm on Friday, all going will need to be at Trailside Middle School BEFORE  5:30 to HELP organize the cars.

IMPORTANT – As the number is limited to 40, register, pay and get forms to me early if you want to go. As the final headcount is required to be provided to the camp 2 weeks prior to 10/20/17, I’ll need to receive all MONEY and FORMS for each person attending BEFORE 8PM, Thursday, October 5 (also, though you need to RSVP as going on Troop Track, don't consider yourself registered until I have your money and completed forms. 

Adults Needed: I'll need atleast two other adults to spend the night, and atleast three others who can drive if they don't want to stay. Takes about an hour each way. Adults who want to stay, but not do the three hour climb then the cost will be $39 less for you.

In addition to our on-line scout form, you'll also need to complete the form on the following link: https://www.smartwaiver.com/auto/?auto_waiverid=54e238904c2ea&auto_tag=r340678

Thanks, Mrs. Moore – adult lead, and Rushil – scout lead
