Still room to sign up for Thompsons Lake!

There is still space at Thompsons Lake.  This is one of the troop's favorite annual events, and you won't want to miss it.  And, since it's so close to home, for scouts with sports and other committments, you can go back and forth to games etc. and still enjoy a weekend of camping. -- Mr. Kemp
