You asked for it, you got it. 

Summer Camp for 2017 is at Camp Alexander in Colorado during the week of June 25th through July 1st
The total cost is $330 per scout and $265 per adult. The sooner we are all paid up with sooner we can register for classes. Another important note is that I have reserved for 25 scouts and 10 adults. Although I can probably reserve more space if needed, I would need to know soon as this camp fills up quickly. Needless to say we are on a first come, first serve basis here.

Recharter for 2017!
