* Meeting with parents.
* Checking on physicals.
* Reviewing individual youth schedules and helping them identify any advance work needed to meet their objectives.

* File Campership requests with Council Service Center.
* Have unit go to Beaver Day to help get Camp Birch ready for summer camp.

* Discuss camp preparation at each meeting.

* Arrange for your vacation for camp.
* Send note to parents reminding them of camp fees still due and physical forms still needed.
