Lunch will be picnic style by the Lake and we ask that each family prepare a sack lunch in advance and bring a sheet.


There are no showers at the camp and families are free from 4-6 to drive home to make arrangements, if desired.


During the Flag Retirement Ceremony the Scouts will fold the flag in a dignified manner prior to its destruction.  However, in the interest of safety our Color Guard (Denner) will not place the flag unto the fire and instead will present the folded flag for final retirement.  This is a time honored tradition for Scouts at campfires and parents and Scouts will remain standing silently at attention until the flag has been fully retired.


Look forward to seeing you at camp.
