2017 Zipline Camp Out Sep 8-10

Zipline iconSeptember’s campout will be at Valley Zipline Tours in Lancaster, OH from Sep 8th to 10th.

• Please arrive at Lewis Center United Methodist Church (LCUMC) between 5:00-5:30. We will pack the trailer, take attendance, assign seating, and leave at 6:00pm. So, make sure you’ve eaten dinner beforehand. We will set up camp directly at the zipline site.

• We do not stop for food, so make sure you arrive with a full belly. But not too full because you never know what the bathroom situation is like at camp! (this place has a decent bathroom though)
• Scouts must be dressed in CLASS A uniform going to camp on Friday night and coming home on Sunday morning.
• Assistant Scoutmasters – make sure your patrol has an assigned Grubmaster with a meal plan and well-equipped patrol box.
• When we leave camp on Sunday morning, we will send out a group email on when we expect to be back in Lewis Center.
IMPORTANT – the pickup location on Sunday is at the OSU Medical Center Carepoint Lewis Center parking lot (corner of Lewis Center Rd and Rt 23), not LCUMC, since we don’t want to interfere with church service.
• Our tour will most likely start at 9:00am, lasting 3 hours.
• In the afternoon, we will head over to Hocking Hills and hike 2 newly opened trails.
• The camp site also has a lake (that we’ll zip over), so bring your fishing gear.
Patrols should plan for the following meals: Saturday breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday cold breakfast.

Please be aware of their weight restrictions: 70 lbs. minimum and 250 lb. maximum.
Also, everyone must complete a waiver, which can be found on their website.

Permission form and required waiver are in the troop downloads section.
