2019 Summer Camp


Payment for Catalina Island ( Camp Emerald Bay) is now due.  The payment deadline is 3/1/2019.  Registration closes on 3/1/19 except for incoming 5th graders.  

All reservations have been made and  payment covers, Summer Camp, Plane flights, Shuttles, Ferries and the battleship. Please make your check out to “Friends of Troop 224”  and send to our treasurer, Karen Wang, 321 Beacon Ridge Lane Walnut Creek CA 94597 Please note, if you use PAYPAL please follow the instructions below exactly.  It will cost each participant approx.. $40 more in paypal fees if the below instructions are not followed correctly.  This year’s summer camp is the “big summer camp trip” and is more expensive than the local camps. 

Every other year we do a less expensive local summer camp trip.  This is the best summer camp location I have ever foundPreliminary head count shows 18 scouts and 8 adults interested thus far.

  • Scouts - $ 950
  • Adults $- 795

There has been a change this year.  Because there are no airlines who can get us to the Ferry terminal on time, we will be flying on Jet Blue into Long Beach on Saturday July 20, 2019 instead of Sunday July 21, 2019  Please note the change.   We will stay on board the Battleship U.S.S. Iowa on Saturday night with dinner, breakfast and tour included. $75pp  The battleship is right next to the departure dock for our 8:00A.M. departure to Catalina Island.   

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.  See below for updated details and payment instructions.
