Provisional Troop Summer
2017 Camp La-No-Che Summer Camp – Provisional Troop Information
What is Provisional Troop Camping?
If you are unable to attend camp with your troop or if you just want to come to camp for another week, a provisional troop is provided. Adult leadership is provided for all Scouts participating in Provisional. Provisional campers have the same opportunity to enjoy the programs as other Scouts, and have the opportunity for special activities.
Provisional Camping 2017
Camp La-No-Che provides a Provisional (Provo) Troop with a Scoutmaster, Asst. Scoutmaster, and volunteer assistants for all eight weeks of camp. The Scoutmaster will be hired by the Central Florida Council and will not hold any other camp positions. This provides an opportunity for boys to attend camp who are unable to attend camp with their troop, who wish to attend more than one week of camp, or who are attending specialty camp without a troop. The Provisional Troop is not intended to be a alternative to troop camping. Any troop sending four or more boys to the Provisional Troop will be expected to provide an adult to assist with leadership. Questions may be directed to the Camp La-No-Che office.
– Provisional Application and Provisional Parent Letter are located in the Leader’s Guide
