If you’rea Howler Cub Scout or White Tail BeaverScout, ask your Scouters to plan to come to this camp so you can preparefor advancement to your next section.

Scouters, worried about ratio? Never fear! You can bring a group of youth even if you have only one Scouter. We’ll be camping close to one another, and the other Scouters at camp will be able to help ensure that the two-deep rule is followed.
