Good food, beautiful camping weather, Scout skills, and an awesome job going through our tents.

Don't forget to print out your workbooks and keep making progress on them!

There is a PLC meeting next Tuesday.

And last but not least - A huge Thank You to our Scoutmaster Dan Pejril who has done an awesome job.   He is going to be handing the Scoutmaster position to Mike Miller, but don't worry;    Dan will still be active working with the Troop Committee and helping  Elizabeth Root in her new role as Committee Chair.    Feel free to join us!     We always need help from our adults to support the program our Scouts create.
