Folks,

  We will be camping at Quail Hill Scout Reservation the weekend of 9/27 - 9/29. The scouts will be working on advancements as well as having a good time. We will be camping in tents. Those scouts who started the Cooking merit badge in summer camp will be cooking the meals. Those scouts will also need to cook foil packet dinners on Friday night. Here are a couple of websites that provide ideas, but the boys should be as creative as they want:

If there are any questions, we can discuss at the upcoming troop meeting.

Summer Camp

posted Jul 13, 2019, 1:11 PM by Alex Karn

We will be meeting at the camp parking lot to load gear into the trailer to be taken into the site. Please plan on arriving to the parking lot no later than 1:00PM. The Scouts will go to the site for check-in, and Mr. Karn will bring the trailer down to the site.

As mentioned, we will be sharing our site with another troop. Mr. Karn has been in touch with their coordinator, and they have requested the use of one lean-to and six tents. That leaves us with two lean-tos and eight tents. We will also bring troop tents to be used if needed as changing tents and/or storing gear. It is strongly recommended that you bring a bedroll, pad, inflatable, or some cardboard for under your sleeping bag in the lean-to.
