Sign-Up for the March Camp Out - Canoeing!

Posted on Mar 19 2015 - 9:23pm

Update: as we mentioned in the Parent Meeting, the Spring canoeing trip is our flagship campout of the Spring semester.  It is typically one of the boys' favorite camp outs.  We have a deadline to give the canoe outfitters a headcount, so if you want to participate, please sign-up on the website this week.   Scouts, sign-up for the March camp out.  Leave Friday, March 27th at 6pm and return on Sunday, March 29th. We'll be using our same canoeing guide this year, Marc McCord.  The fee per participant (scout and adult) is $146 to cover the equipment rental, professional canoe guide fees, and camping fees.  Please see the Event Registration feature for more details. As always, where we go will depend upon water levels and how early you need to be back on the last day. The boys all seemed to really enjoy the Lower Mountain Fork last year, and it is the prettiest of the rivers that are normally within the time range available, as well as being the most reliable for flow conditions.  If you want to sign-up, please register using the Event Registration feature on the right side of this website.
