Three Scout Patrols and one adult Patrol will be heading out for this weekend’s March Campout. Everyone should plan to be in the StG Parking Lot on Friday by 5:30p. Scouts should be in uniform with all gear packed (and have already eaten dinner).
We will go directly to the McHenry Roller Rink and skate in the evening. At 9 PM, the general public leaves and we have the facility to ourselves. We will set up our tents inside and have a cracker barrel snack before light’s out.
To help with your packing, we suggest you grab the Troop Weekend Packing List to guide your gear selection. March can be a very tricky month to be outdoors. Plan for any kind of weather – but so far it looks pretty good. Avoid cotton jeans and gym shoes. Scouts need to wear boots and synthetic fabrics.
We’ll move from McHenry on Saturday morning to Camp Lakota near Woodstock. We’ll spend the rest of the day and overnight working on camping skills and having fun!
