Basic Information:

        We will be taking the Ferry from Orient Point. We will meet there to assemble and load gear. At the end of the week we will take the Ferry from New London, Connecticut back to NY. NOTE: ALL SCOUTS MUST WEAR THEIR UNIFORMS TO THE FERRY.

REMEMBER THAT IN ALL ACTIVITIES INCLUDING MERIT BADGES, REQUIRE THE USE OF THE BUDDY SYSTEM. ALL SCOUTS MUST BE AT THE SITE 15 MINUTES PRIOR TO EACH MEAL.

Sleeping Arrangements:

        We will be sleeping on cots in platform tents. Each tent can hold up to 4 people. This is the only campout that will allow scouts to choose who they will sleep with.

Meals:

        Yawgoog offers and cooks all meals. For each meal there is one waiter needed per table. Each waiter must arrive 15 minutes early to each meal to set up, and stay 15 minutes late to clean up. A schedule will be made and posted in our campsite. For snacks and drinks between meals, there are trading posts open. The trading posts also sell souvenirs and equipment. The only rule Yawgoog has concerning meals is that all scouts must wear their uniform to dinner.

Merit Badges:

        Yawgoog offers many merit badges. All 1st year scouts will complete Basketry, Leatherwork, Metalwork, and Woodcarving. They are easy and fun badges in which you will make useful items. Older scouts will have the benefit of choosing their badges. PLAN YOUR TIME WISELY. Do not overwork yourselves, but don't give yourself too much free time.
