Day Camp 2017 : We are still looking for team of folks that is willing to take this on and run it. We as a district will support you. However, we do need a core group of interested Scouters to make this happen. Training on how to run a day camp will be provided at National Camp School. This can not happen with your help if you want your Scout to have a great camp experience. If you are interested please contact us at battlefieldscouting602@gmail.com.
