SCHEDULE

Friday evening, we’ll depart OLPH just about 5PM for the short drive to Camp Glen Gray.  We’ll have dinner Friday evening and stay in cabins.  Those needing outdoor camping nights for OA or Camping Merit Badge may sleep in a tent PROVIDED the Scout approves it with Mr. Burns ahead of time.  It will be cold for winter camping and only for the well prepared older or ranked up scouts.

Saturday, we’ll have breakfast and start cooking for the Court of Honor Feast to be held Saturday at 5PM in the warm cafeteria. Families are invited (and encouraged) to attend the COH and should RSVP to the Troop website.   This RSVP is for camping only.  Come celebrate your scout’s success and show him your support.
