If you haven’t registered yet, there is still space available at some camps. Reservations can be made at http://www.cpcbsa.org/camping/summer-program/reservations.
Scout Troops, packs and crews – have you signed up for Summer Camp or Winter Lodge yet?
Packs, remember that registration opened for resident camps June 1st this year, not in November as before. So those resident camps are filling faster.
Troops, remember to fill out an independent camp form if you are not camping at a council camp.
Don’t hesitate to call Karen Gill if you have a question. 503-325-2990
