Remarks:
Description: Back by Popular Demand – We’re going to Bears Den.
Focus is on helping our younger scouts complete requirements and reach Tenderfoot.

Patrol meal planning will be at the May 23rd Troop meeting –
Try to register before the meeting if possible.
Make sure your patrol leader or an ASM know of any dietary restrictions/preferences!

Gather at COF at 4:30pm Friday June 4th (modified Field Uniform/Class A Shirt without the neckerchief) to gather Troop equipment, then drive you Bears Den Sites 1,2,3 and 4 (Eat beforehand or bring a packed dinner).

Camping will end Sunday June 6th at 9am (when parents will pick up scouts and take them to COF to put away Troop equipment).

What does each scout need to bring? see the Troop Camping Checklist on the website, under essential links and make sure they attend the June 2nd meeting.
