Camporee Update!

Posted on Sep 24 2022 - 10:29pm

Today (Sunday) is the deadline to sign up for the Fort Orange Camporee!  We have 28 scouts already signed up.  Let's see if we can make it an even 30, or 40, or 50. You get the idea. We will do final campout prep at this week's meeting, which is being held at the First United Methodist Church again. If you haven't already paid your $15 for the campout, please bring it Wednesday night and give it to Mr. Folio.

Finally, if anyone has a propane fire pit we can borrow for the campout, please let me know.  Thacher Park is not allowing open fires in the park but they will allow us to use a propane fire pit. Thank you!  (Mr. Kemp)
