Scouts worked on advancements, played a game, and unpacked the trailer from Weko. We had 3 Webelos visit and help unpack. Pick your badges for Summer Camp! Instructions below. Mr. Hill is traveling so Mr. Bacon is acting as Scoutmaster.
Scouts need to stay out of the main floor of the church. You can come in and leave that way but don't go there any other time, use the restrooms on the basement level.

Summer Camp at Camp Rotary: Week of July 23-29, 2023, Badge selection is open!
Fill out the “SummerCamp23” form and bring it with payment if you haven’t already! We want to get our deposits and badge selections in ASAP, since the selection window is open and some badges are already full. See other attached files for badge options and the sheet to list your selections. If you already paid, check the guardian’s email for a message from Mr. Hill or Mr. Lorenz with your link to update Scout info. After clicking on update info, scroll down and you can start selecting sessions (easier to do from a computer). Each Scout has a different link so be sure you are using the matching link for the right Scout and that auto correct/fill doesn’t put in a parent’s name where the Scout’s should be (totally not speaking from experience, oops, but easily fixable.) Just be careful not to unselect your wanted session by mistake and losing your slot. You can click “Done” any time and come back and fix anything needed later.
Please see attached links and files for more camp info. https://scoutingevent.com/272-crsbsarc2023
