Arrival and check-in

We are meeting at Oak Spring at 11:30am; departing by no later than 11:45am.   Parents with scouts needing ride can drop them at that time.  Please email me Mr. Guzman.

 

Check-in is at 1pm.   Parents are welcomed to drive directly, but please be early.   The scouts will not be able to check-in until the entire troop it on-site. 

 

Make sure that your son brings a brown bag lunch to eat on the way to camp.

 

Scouts were told to wear their class A uniform and swimming trunks underneath to be ready for the swim test.  This applies to adults leaders as well.
