Camps & Events

We frequently get asked by parents when camps and events occur throughout the year.  This is our current best guess about camps and timing (and approximate cost) based on what Troops of yesteryear have chosen.  

Keep in mind, though, our activities are largely planned by the Scouts so this list may change!  

Keep an eye on the calendar on the home page and the Troop schedule on the Scouts page for up-to-the-minute information.

 Event Date Description            Approx Cost
