Camp Information:

We recently had our Summer Camp 2024 Kickoff, and it was great to see those that attended. If you we're unable to attend the kickoff, Click HERE and it will take you to the webpage were the kickoff PowerPoint and Video Recording is posted, as well as all the webinars' recordings will be posted. That page is where you will find all the resources as well.

Also, please, if you have any Scouts or Scouters that have Dietary Restrictions to fill out the form on the Scouts BSA Registration, Forms & Resources page. That way we can better plan food.

On a side note, we are still looking for Camp Staff for the summer. If you have any Scouts or Scouters that want to work on Camp Staff at either Camp Lakota or Camp Berry, please have them go onto the council website and download the application and have them email it back to me and I will make sure it gets to the right camp leadership team.

If you need any help with registration updates or payments, please let me know or my Camp Leadership know so we can help.

It is going to be a great summer and we can't wait to see you and all your Scouts having Fun!!


See you down the Scouting Trail!!
