Cooking MB at Camp Medicine Mountain

Posted on May 21 2018 - 12:17pm

I announced at last week's Camp Medicine Mountain meeting that Scouts planning on doing the camping portion of Cooking MB at Camp Medicine Mountain MUST email me to tell  me that AND if they have any dietary restrictions. So far, only one Scout has done so. IF you do NOT do this, you will NOT be part of Cooking MB at Camp Medicine Mountain (even if you've talked to me one-on-one about this -- I cannot keep track of individula conversations and MUST have the email to do the required coordination!) Thank you for your kind cooperation. IF you email camps@troop840.org, you will automatically email me and CC Mrs. Ebert while obeying BSA's new YPT rules of not communicating with Adult Leaders one-on-one. Hint, hint ....

Directions for taking this course and emailing your YPT certificate to T840 are in the lower-left corner of this website.
