Save the Date Flyer 1st Adult Only Pinewood Derby

Posted By Lenny, Wednesday, June 10, 2015
Updated: Wednesday, June 10, 2015

Evening all Scouters,

This is an event that has been talked about many times. Finally a couple folks have decided to add this event to the schedule at an odd time. Read the flyer. This event will be adult only. We are attempting to confirm location. More on rules/ division/ class in a few weeks just as they are ironed out. 
But save the date; arrange plans for the kids and join us to help make the first one not the last one. Oh and dust off those cars too.

Posted By Stephen Allen, Thursday, May 21, 2015

Good News!!!!!!

Please share with your units.

Due to the scheduling issues with Prince George's County School System we have reduced the price of Day Camp to $175 this is a discount from the regular price of 215.00.

Also we would like announce the formation of two provisional dens. These dens will be made up of scouts whose units will not be attending camp but still have youth that would like to have a great Day Camp experience. Some details include:

* First come first serve
* 20 positions are open
* The den walker requirement will be waved for those in the provisional den
* Parent must attend the Den walker meeting before camp
* No more than 4 scouts from the same unit can register for the provisional den

If you would like one of these provisional spots. Please go online register. Then shoot me an email stating that you want one of these spots. ( I will provide a countdown for how many spots are left. Remember first come first serve!
