Summer Camp Update – High Adventure Details

Camp Wilderness has two additional week long programs for older scouts. You would ride to/from camp with our  group.  Scouts can sign up for either program individually or with a buddy or a parent. The troop does not need to fill out the class or canoe crew.

The Scuba Merit Badge and PADI certification would take place at camp. You would spend your time working on Scuba instead of other merit badges but would sleep in camp with the troop.

The Boundary Waters canoe trip would be during the week, you would sleep out with the canoe crew and only spend Friday night back at camp with the troop.

Please see the attached flyers and add $17 to the cost to cover gas to/from Chanhassen. The registration deadlines are December 1 so please quickly consider these great opportunities!  2015 NTier Summer Camp Program

The troop is going June 14 – 20th, 2015
