Things to Remember

  • The family BBQ begins at approximately 6:00 p.m. on Friday after the evening flag ceremony.
  • The Campfire and Court of Honor immediately follow the BBQ.
  • If your troop’s leadership will change during the week, a roster indicating leader names and arrival and departure times must be submitted at your Sunday arrival.

Pre-Camp Troop Activity Sign-up

Troop leaders have the option of submitting your desired troop activity list prior to your pre-camp planning meeting. Just send a list of those troop activities that your troop would like to have in their camp schedule and we will develop a schedule to meet your needs. Please submit this activity list three weeks prior to your week at camp. We will have a schedule for you to review at your planning meeting. You will have the opportunity to make changes at this time. Please understand that we will make every effort to schedule your desired activities, and submitting your list does not guarantee your list is official. Some activities are in high demand and we want to be fair to everyone.
