Shoebox Campout - Cancelled

Posted on Jul 21 2015 - 9:02am

The Shoebox Campout scheduled for this weekend has been cancelled. It was necessary to cancel the event due to not having enough participation from Scouts and adults. At a minimum we must have at least 4 adults attend the full campout. The reason for this is to maintain two-deep leadership and to cover two-deep in the event of an emergency.
