Meeting & Camping Updates

Parents/Scouts: Due to the cold weather forecasted we have  changed the location and camping arrangements for Saturday‘s campout.   We will be camping at Allamuchy Scout Camp.  Address is on permission slip.  All that are attending must complete the new permission slip.   We have reserved two cabins.  If scouts wish to tent camp outside the cabin that is their option.  Social distancing and masks are required inside the cabin as well as in the campground.  Scouts must provide their own Saturday lunch.  We will do patrol cooking. Each patrol will provide Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast.  Any scout who wants to cancel will receive scout credit.   We will have a waiting list if necessary.
