On August 19-21, we’ll do one of our “favorite” outings: Anything That Floats. With this theme, we include boats, kayaks, sailboats, fishing bobbers and human beings! We’re heading to Rock Cut State Park near Rockford for a weekend campout to end the summer. The youth campground is right on the shore of beautiful Pierce Lake and we have a large area for tents, cooking and activities. Scouts planning to camp should bring their permission slip and $15 for food to the Aug 15 troop meeting. (There is a $4 charge to swim at the lifeguard-protected beach; you can pay at the park).
This outing is also an opportunity for families to join us on Saturday evening. Bring a dish to pass and we’ll add some camp-cooked goodies to make a feast. You may also camp Saturday night if you like. Please let us know on Aug 15 if your family will join us.
Grab the permission slip and join your fellow Scouts.
