Posted on Sep 12 2016 - 8:52pm

We are already at the point where we need to start thinking about Summer Camp next year.
At the previous PLC, we discussed several camps and would like feedback from the whole Troop.

If you have plans to attend as a Scout or parent or send your Scout to summer camp, please look through the following:


We have included two favorites that we have been to in the past as well as two new and closer camps.
We will be making a final decision by 9/20/2016 so please give your feedback as soon as possible.

Summer Camp 2017 - take the survey today

Posted on Sep 12 2016 - 10:26am

We would like your input on which camp to attend.  The PLC has narrowed down the choice to four camps: Lewis and Clark, Cris Dobbins/Dietler, Arrowhead, and Osage.

We have a super-quick survey for everyone.  It only takes a couple of minutes, includes information about all four camps, and will help us determine which camp to attend in 2017.
