Freeze Out and Klondike Derby Practice

Freeze Out – Mark your calendar! The Pack 36/Troop 36 Freeze Out is scheduled for  January 11, 12, and 13 , 2013 at Camp Boyhaven in Middle Grove Falls.

Camp Boyhaven is located in Middle Grove, New York just off State Route 29 approximately 9 miles west of Saratoga Springs and one mile west of the village of Rock City Falls. From the east, take a right (north) off 29 onto Boyhaven Road at the Camp Boyhaven Sign and watch for the White House on your right. From the west, it will be a left turn onto Boyhaven Road. You will be driving right through the middle of Camp from the time you leave route 29!

Facilities – The Troop has rented Banker II.  The cabin is by a wood stove.  There are bunks for sleeping.  The cabin has a propane stove that we will use for cooking.  There is drinking water available at the Camp, although there is no running water in the cabins where we will be staying.  There are outhouse facilities near the cabins.

Medical Forms – Each participant is required to bring a completed health form.  The health form can be found at  For this weekend camping trip, only Part A and Part B must be completed.  Part C does not need to be completed – you do not need a doctor to sign part C for a weekend camping trip.  In addition, the height and weight chart listed in Part C does not apply to this weekend camping trip.

Cost – The cost for the camping trip is $15.00 per person.  If you will be paying by check, please make your check payable to Troop 36.  Please email me and let me know how many will be attending.  You can pay when you arrive at the Camp.

Transportation – Because we have never been to this camp, we can meet at the Halfmoon-Waterford Firehouse parking lot on Friday, February 24th at 5:30 pm to drive up to the camp.

Food – A basic menu will be provided for the weekend.  Participants should eat dinner on Friday evening before arriving at Rotary Scout Reservation.
