Goshen Registration is now Fully Active

Posted By Gary Carroll II, Friday, January 30, 2015
Updated: Friday, January 30, 2015

Dear Goshen Leaders,

 

This note is to inform you that we have now officially opened Goshen Registration for you to begin adding your Scouts and additional leaders.  You can begin doing so at register.gotogoshen.org.

 

Please be reminded of some of our procedures:

 

1.  In order for a Scout or adult to be registered, payment must be made at the time of registration.  Scouts and adults who are not paid by 12:00 every night will automatically be un-registered from their camp session.  

 

2.  Our Camper Aid deadline was posted as February 1, 2015.  The form can be found here:http://www.ncacbsa.org/members/group_content_view.asp?group=119323&id=282487

I realize that this might be the first that many of your have heard this information and it is reflective of a change in policy.  Please do you best to submit forms by March 1, 2015.  Also, please remember not to register any Scouts applicants for Camper Aid into the online system.  This function will be taken care of by a member of the Goshen Staff.

 

3. Our Goshen fees will increase on April 25, 2015.  Please be sure to register and make payment before this time.  Anyone who has made a payment in the system by this date will be eligible for their 2015 Goshen cap.  Caps embroidered with the Unit Type, Number and city will be available for purchase in the online store again this year, beginning February 15.  The deadline for these orders will be April 1, 2015.

 

4.  You may begin signing up for merit badges at Camps Bowman and Marriott immediately.  Please wait until Monday to begin signing up for merit badges at Camp Olmsted. We are still making adjustments to the online registration for those classes and we do not want you to sign up for a class that may no longer exist in that time slot.

 

Thanks for your support of Goshen Scout Reservation.  You and your Scouts are going to have an amazing summer.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email or telephone.

 

Yours in Goshen,

 

Gary

Goshen Update--Make Sure Your Unit is Registered!

Posted By Gary Carroll II, Wednesday, January 21, 2015
Updated: Wednesday, January 21, 2015
Dear Goshen 2015 Leaders,

Firstly, I want to wish you all a warm and happy 2015!  We are excited about the coming season and have already begun putting together new programs and improving facilities.  One thing that you may not know, Calicoe Richir, Goshen’s administrator, relocated at the end of November due to a new work assignment received by her husband.  We miss her and wish her the best (she may pop up at Goshen during the summer).  We are working now to fill the very large shoes of Calicoe.  Until that happens, I’ll be your primary point of contact.

In looking at the registrations for 2015, it appears that many of you have been using the online system with very few issues.  This is great!  We do not anticipate that there will be a lot of changes from the 2014 procedures.  We will still be implementing the large group registration template for any unit with 20 or more campers.  More info on that will be distributed later.  Some of you have registered for camp but have yet to make a payment to secure your spot.  

Please read this carefully.

If no payment has been made, your unit is not counted as registered for Camp.  Thankfully, correcting this situation is easy.  We can solve with two options.

Option 1:  Call Gary at 301 633 5456 with Credit Card in hand and we will process over the phone.

Option 2:  Go into your unit’s registration, click on the event registration option under the “Group Menu” tab.  Click the red x next to your Group’s registration and then reselect that option.  Immediately go back to the Group Menu tab, select the Event Billing option and then follow the prompts to make payment.  Of course, if you have questions, please feel free to give me a call.

We are anticipating that we will open registration for all campers on January 30th this year.  I will send another note to let you all know when we are live.  



Thanks for being such great volunteers and Goshen supporters.

Yours in Scouting!

Gary

GSR FAQ Feb 14

Posted By Gary Carroll, Saturday, February 15, 2014

Click here to return to the Goshen Social page.

Dear Goshen Leaders,

We want to ensure that you are up-to-date on the latest information about your upcoming summer experience at Goshen Scout Reservation. Please see below for the answers to this week’s most frequently asked questions:

  • Have I missed the registration deadline? How do I register my Scouts and additional Leaders?
    • You have not missed the deadline. We are still working with our developers to ensure that the program that we roll out meets all of our needs and is user-friendly. Once the registration portal is open to general registration, an email will be sent to all unit registrars.
  • My Scout will not bridge over to a troop until after March. How will I ensure that we don’t miss out on our spot?
    • Although our reservations will be on a first-come, first-served basis, we will be holding a few spots for each unit in anticipation of bridging Scouts. Families are also encouraged to let their troops know of their summer camp intentions so that the unit registrar is able to begin the registration process.
  • When will the Leaders’ Guide for 2014 be available?
    • Your Goshen Team is working very hard on updating the Leaders’ Guide. It is our intent to have a general Leader guide with appendices for each of the Camps so that there is one location for all available information. The first draft version will be available to participants at the University of Scouting on February 22, 2014. The subsequent draft will be complete by February 28th.
  • What is the ratio of Scouts to Leaders at Goshen?
    • The preferred ratio for Camps Ross and PMI is 5 scouts : 2 Adult Leaders. More Leaders are welcome to attend and are invited to divide the week with their counterparts. Of course, parents and Leaders of Scouts who need more constant supervision are welcome to attend. Please remember that we also encourage carpooling and that a 1:1 ratio should only be used when absolutely necessary.
    • The preferred ratio for Camps Marriott, Bowman, and Olmsted is 8 Scouts : 2 Adult Leaders. At Lenhok’sin the preference is 2-3 Adult Leaders per crew.

As always, keep these questions coming and feel free to write me at Gary.Carroll@scouting.org
