About Us

Troop 320 is an active Boy Scout Troop in the Town of Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina.  We are a unit within the Black River District of the Occoneechee Council.

Originally chartered in 1951, Troop 320 has been continually serving Fuquay-Varina for the past 40 years. It has been awarded the Quality Unit award for the past 39 years.

Troop 320 goes by the "Orange Crush" nickname, a reference to the color of their hats and the colors of Fuquay-Varina High School. This name was given to them by fellow troops as 320 arrived at summer camp in a very large, old and crinkled orange school bus many years ago.  A tradition of the troop is to hand out cans of Orange Crush soda to other scouts at summer camp.

Join our troop.  We will be meeting in the Centrum  at 100 Judd Parkway SE, Fuquay Varina from 7:30 PM until 9:00 PM

*** Please note Web Conferencing Information in lieu of Troop Meetings at the Church. ***

Overview

Since our choice for summer camp, Camp Grimes has been canceled we have decided to create our own program utilizing Camp Campbell. 

Goals

  1. Create a great summer camp experience for our scouts.
  2. Maintain a safe and responsible, proactive program that will help us protect and enhance the safety of our scouts.
  3. Maintain a reasonable cost, one that will encourage our scouts to participate.
  4. Provide rank advancement and merit badge opportunities for our scouts.  Especially the badges needed for advancement.  Like swimming, First Aid etc.

Specifications

Food

All food will be provided for all meals except for lunch up on Friday.

 

Shelter

Scouts may use hammocks and are encouraged to bring their own tents. Scouts sharing tents should exercise safe sleeping orientation.

Campsite Details

Program

Program will include First Aid Merit Badge,  Swimming Merit Badge, Advanced Swimming, Woodcarving Merit Badge  and other craft type badges, Archery Merit Badge, Camping Merit Badge, Cooking Merit Badge American Business, American Cultures, Citizenship in the Nation Merit Badge, Citizenship in the Community Merit Badge, Citizenship in the World Merit Badge, Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge, Family Life Merit Badges Canoeing, Backpacking Fishing (would need NC fishing license if Scout is 16 or older … NC licenses works, in VA on Kerr Lake), Wilderness Survival and many others.  See table for additional options.

Safety

  1. Scouts and Scouters will be asked not to attend if they are sick. They must be fever free for at least 72 hours prior to the start of camp AND have improved symptoms for at least 72 hours AND at least seven days have passed since symptoms first appeared to attend.
  2. Kristi Gilbaugh will be furnishing the troop a temporal thermometer to be used before and during camp.
  3. Scouts and Scouters would have temperature checks both prior to departure to camp and at least daily while the Scouts and Scouters are at camp. A screening station will be set up to perform a symptom check prior to the Scout/Scouter joining the traveling population.
  4. Scouts that exhibit fevers (CDC guidance is 100.4F) or other COVID-like symptoms  should be isolated from the other campers and a parent should be called to pick their child up ASAP. 
  5. Scouters that exhibit fevers or other COVID-like symptoms will self-isolate from other campers and Scouters until transportation arrangements can be made.
  6. All common areas should be thoroughly disinfected.
  7. High-touch areas (door knobs/handles, tools, etc.) should be disinfected multiple times throughout the day.
  8. Social distancing in groups, such as merit badge classes, should be strictly enforced. If social distancing cannot be maintained, masks should be worn. 

a.              Masks May not be necessary at the time of camp

  1. Scouts should plan to bring multiple masks, they do not need to be disposable. Masks should be changed when they become moist or dirty.

 .               As things get better - we should adhere to CDC guidance at the time - Masks may not be necessary at the time of Camp - + we will all be outside in the fresh air - Plan on higher temps so dehydration and heat exhaustion would probably be a higher risk.

  1. Scouts should sleep in their own tents when possible.  IF a Scout is using a hammock, there should be 12 feet between hammocks.  
  2. Cleaning and disinfecting protocols will be followed per CDC recommended guidelines for camps.
  3. The troop will be using disposable serving products as a special precaution for this trip. 
  4. At a minimum, Scouts and Scouters will wash their hands with soap and water each morning, before and after every meal, after transitioning from activities, or using the restroom. If soap and water is not available, hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes should be used at a minimum.
