Twilight Camp registration is coming very fast. Laura Knight and Susan Ison will be coordinating Twilight Camp this year. Please be looking for an email soon with more information about camp. Right now they need to know how many Scouts will be going and who plans on volunteering to be a walking leader. You do not have to be there everyday to be a walking leader. You can volunteer for the days that work for you. We cannot go to Twilight Camp if we do not have enough volunteers. The ratio is 1 adult to 5 boys, but there needs to be at least 2 adults with each group.
Twilight Camp is $65 and you can use scout account money available. Please email Susan as soon as possible if your Scout plans on going and what days you will be available to be a walking leader.
