2015 Summer Camp- Info Packet

Posted on

Hello parents of scouts interested in the 2015 Summer Camp at Pioneer Scout Reservation!

For those who could not make it to the meeting last night, here is a link to the 2015 Summer Camp packet:

A brief note for first year scouts and their families: Sign up for merit badge classes using the Merit Badge Worksheet. T-2-1 (aka The Starting Place) is ideal for first year scouts!  T-2-1 does not require sign up. It has more of a drop-in/workshop feel.
Note prerequisites, age and rank requirements when signing up for a merit badge class.
If you have any questions, please call or email Jim Rossow, at:
