We currently have 29 scouts signed up (Great!), including 15 scouts of the Scout/Tenderfoot/2nd Class ranks, working on skills in camp, and the 14 scouts (ranks 1st Class and above) working the trail crew.
We have 12 adults signed up to drive, and 10 staying in camp.

With 29 scouts signed up, we need 29 seats EACH WAY.
We currently have 27 seats (with one TBD car quantity) for Friday (meaning…SHORT 2 SEATS) and 24 seats (with one TBD car quantity) for Sunday (meaning…SHORT 5 SEATS).
Parents, as always, the best way to ensure your scout has a ride to camp is if YOU are behind the wheel. Please consider helping your son and his scout troop with driving.

PARENTS, YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO CAMP WITH US! It’s really not too bad. The scouts do ALL the work. Really. I wouldn’t lie.

***Winter camping gear rules apply.
