    • Adults attending summer camp: $100 per adult total cost due.

Please see Nicole McLaughlin at the Picnic to turn in all of the above.

Special Note: Collecting, reviewing, recording and organizing paperwork for 40 Scouts and 10 adults is a large task that Mrs. McLaughlin is volunteering to take on for the Troop.

It is requested that you thoroughly review your paperwork prior to turning it in for completeness. We will need TWO copies of the form. Please have each set of forms and paperwork organized as follows:

Set 1:

    • Payment
    • Permission Slip signed by BOTH scout and parent
    • Parts A, B, C completed, part C MUST be signed by a doctor
    • Copy of health insurance ID card

Set 2:

    • Parts A, B, C completed, part C MUST be signed by a doctor
    • Copy of health insurance ID card

Please do not use staples, use paper clips and preferably, turn both completed packets in an envelope with the Scout’s name clearly printed on the envelope.

If you are an adult going, please have your paperwork in a separate envelope, organized in the same manner.

If for some reason, you do not have your paperwork ready by June 5th, please contact Mrs. McLaughlin ( ASAP to let her know when you expect to have them.

If the timing is such where your insurance is not due to pay for a well visit, most doctors’ office will fill out Medical Form Part C for a small fee of about $10 to $15. This is acceptable for the medical forms.

We ask for this paperwork for by June 5th because it has to be organized and ready for Summer Camp as early as possible to avoid any Scout being turned away due to incomplete or missing paperwork. This date is to help you and your Scout “Be Prepared” for camp.

Let’s help Mrs. McLaughlin by getting it in on time and organized.

Camp Barton – Summer 2018

Welcome to Troop 272!

Troop 272 has been serving Rose Valley, PA and neighboring communities since 1953. We are chartered by the Rose Valley Folk, who provide us with the Old Mill in Rose Valley for our weekly troop and Patrol Leader Council meetings on most Wednesday nights throughout the year. In return, the troop performs many service projects for Rose Valley and the surrounding communities, including picking up trash along Rose Valley Road four times a year through PennDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway program.

We are also known as the Troop that sells the Christmas trees each December at the corner of Brookhaven and Rose Valley Roads. This is our big fund-raiser and helps to pay for all the activities we do throughout the year.

We are proud of our youth leadership development; Troop 272 annually sends Scouts to Troop-level, Council-level, and National-level youth leadership development training programs, and regularly our Scouts are invited back as staff members in subsequent years. We are especially proud of our 100+ Eagle Scouts!

But mostly, Troop 272 is FUN! Every year, our Scouts plan a new and diverse calendar of trips and activities. In recent years we have gone camping, hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, caving, swimming, canoeing, sailing, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, cycling, mountain biking, winter camping, downhill and cross-country skiing, and done many other fun and challenging activities. We have also participated in District Klondikes (Scout skills competitions), and District and National Scout Jamborees. We have overnighted on the battleship U.S.S. New Jersey and the sloop-of-war sailing ship U.S.S. Constellation. We have gone to places like Resica Falls, Rodney Scout Reservation on the Chesapeake Bay, Cape May, Gettysburg, Antietam, West Point, New York City, Baltimore, Knife’s Edge, Pine Grove Furnace, the Appalachian Trail, Hawk Mountain, Elk Mountain, the White Mountains in New Hampshire, the Grand Tetons in Wyoming, and many other interesting places. You can see the activities and trips we have planned for this year by checking out our Troop calendar
