Boy Scouts of America Prepared for Life

Campout this weekend

Details for the camp out this weekend can be found on the calendar by clicking on the date. This information includes times of departure and things needed for the weekend. At current time, the Troop is still planning on leaving tomorrow night as scheduled. We will be returning on Sunday as scheduled too. If you were in charge of buying the food for your Patrol this weekend, please don’t forget it. Please come prepared for the weather, it will be raining when we leave tomorrow night and that means setting up in the rain as well. Bring your rain gear to stay dry. Remember if you are not First Class and above, you will need to pitch a Troop tent for all camp outs. Personal tents and hammock systems can be used by Adults and Scouts that are First Class or higher ranks only. No exceptions to this rule.
