Hello Goshen Leaders!
I promise this note to be briefer than two weeks ago. If you are brand new and did not receive my note two weeks ago, please let me know and I will forward:
1. Please do keep in mind that every single youth and adult that pays by the early bird deadline on April 14th will receive a Goshen hat. If you would like to pay an additional $7, you may embroider that hat with your Unit’s Number and Hometown. Please keep in mind that should you choose to get your hats embroidered, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE THEM UNTIL YOUR ARRIVAL AT CAMP. Thus, if you want your hats earlier, non-embroidery is the way to go. As of April 17th, hats will be here and available for pickup. I will send out instructions on that process closer to the date.
2. Our two adult orientation meetings will be held on the 24th of April, and 3rd of May. Both will run from 7PM-8:30ish. The 24th of April will be here at our office at 9190 Rockville Pike Bethesda, MD 20814 and the 3rd of May will be at Andrew Chapel at 1301 Trap Rd Vienna, VA 22182. Remember that these are for adults that are BRAND NEW to the Goshen process. If you already know the drill, you probably do not need to attend, as it is mostly a brief overview of how camp works, and then a Q and A session.
3. For the Boy Scout Camps, please keep in mind that a youth must be paid in full to register for Merit Badges. For the few in each camp that have size limitations, your youth will be put on a waitlist, and then prioritized by the camp staff by age, and then by rank. Merit Badges are NOT first come, first served, so do not worry about them filling up.
4. Finally, keep in mind the Early Bird Deadline is April 14. As of midnight on 04/15/17, the price for both youth and adults will increase by $40. Get them in now to avoid the price hike!
As always, please let us know if you have any questions.
