Parent-Scout Weekend is Here!

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone who registered for Parent-Scout Camping this weekend.

Below are a few key details for this weekend:

  • Weather: We camp in all reasonable weather. This weekend there is some rain in the forecast so bring rain gear.
  • Campsite: We will be camping at the Geronimo campground. Click herefor Google Maps (does not work on Apple Maps in my experience). Geronimo is not hard to find – just keep bearing right past the front gate and it’s not far up the hill.
  • When: Campers can plan to be there Friday anytime after 5. We will be finished up Sunday late morning.
  • Health Forms: If you have not completed health forms, please do so now and email to Lee Danhauer. You can access the forms here.
  • Public Health: Be prepared for daily temperature checks and enhanced safety protocols. Face coverings/masks required.
