Summer Camp Leader Meetings

Summer Camp Leader Meetings for both Boy Scout and Webelos camp took place today. Thatnks to everyone who came -- we enjoyed meeting you.

A few important pieces of information:
  • Because of exceptionally low rainfall this winter, the lake is extremely low, and we expect it will be empty by summer. As a result, we have made the decision to cancel all lake activities now, while individual Scouts and units have time to adjust their schedules. Canoeing, Rowing, Small Boat Sailing and Kayaking Merit badges have been cancelled, along with the Cardboard Canoe Race, and all Webelos lake activities.
  • We have added several other merit badges: Photography, Welding, Citizenship in the World and Space Exploration, so Scouts have other advancement options.
  • We're also adding Field Archery as a free-time option for Boy Scouts.
  • Mountain Bikes are available for Boy Scout troops and Webelos dens to check out by making arrangements with the High Adventure Director at camp.
  • Because of the cancelled lake merit badges, we are postponing the start of online merit badge signups until May 11.
