CAMPSITE

The troop has reserved Troop 2 Verona Cabin for the weekend.  We can accommodate 24 scouts inside, with some tenting outside.  Given our hearty winter, priority for cabin bunks will be given to younger and less experienced scouts;  tenting outside may be granted to less experienced scouts based on prevailing weather conditions!

COST

$ 25.00 which includes camp reservations, and food.

GEAR

We will be outside for the weekend.  Dress for in layers for warming days and cool nights.  For those sleeping outside, we will be tenting either on the ground or on platforms, depending on what is available.  Clothing should be appropriate for the weather.  We have a lovely campsite, but it requires a bit of a hike to get in.  Bring only the equipment which you require.  A backpack is strongly encouraged.

COOKING/FOOD

Friday night: arrive having eaten dinner.  We will have a snack late in the evening.  Saturday, we will cook breakfast and lunch, and have dinner in camp.  Sunday morning, we’ll have breakfast, pack up, and head for home. If you need to cook one or more meals for advancement, this is your opportunity to step up and make it happen!
