Campout in October
The October 1-3 campout will be at Warren Dunes State Park in Sawyer. Please see Eric Walsh’s email for details. There will not be any swimming. Scouts will need to carry their gear about 100 yards to the campsite so please pack accordingly. Due to the packed sand, rolling luggage is not recommended. Please wear old shoes for the service project work session. There is a parking fee so bring cash or your Residential Recreational Passport if attending for camp or just service time (10am - noon on Saturday). We will unpack the trailer when we return on Sunday.
