Hiking and Cycling Campout

Posted on Mar 30 2014 - 8:56am

Scouts, you might notice that we’ve switched the April Campout (to Hiking) and the May Campout (to Cycling).    The dates for the campouts have not changed.   The adult leadership did this to facilitate activities that will open only in May for cycling.
