Cell phones – May be used on way to campsite and back home, and please bring ear buds for courtesy of others in the car. CELL PHONES MAY NOT BE USED DURING THE ACTIVITIES OR AT THE CAMPSITE! Any scout found using his cell phone other than in the car will result in confiscation of the phone during the remainder of the weekend, as well as a loss of cell phone privileges for future trips. Our goal is to try to encourage the scouts to “decompress” from technology and enjoy the weekend tech free.
