Wilderness Survival Camp-out
The always-popular wilderness survival camp out is scheduled for March 14-16, 2014 at Camp Callum in Frankfort, Ind. We will assemble/pack at Luke's Lodge on Friday, Mar. 14 @ 6:00pm; we will leave the lodge @ 6:15 pm. Please eat before arriving or bring a sack dinner to eat in the vehicle; we will not stop to eat along the way. Parents can pick up scouts on Sun., Mar. 16 at Luke's Lodge around 12N. Please refer to your scout handbook for cold-weather packing and watch the weather reports. Each scout will be expected to prepare a wilderness survival kit. For newer families, that includes various items that will fit in a large coffee can. More information about these kits can be found in the email that will be sent this week.
