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.

This is one of those opportunities for us to be seen supporting our Charter Organization. So far this year the Knights have contributed over $1000 to our Scouting budget through BBQ sales at St Catherine.
