Families can choose to camp for one night, two nights, or just come for the day on Saturday. The Crossover Ceremony will be held Saturday at 4pm. Scouts should bring their Class A shirt to wear for the ceremony. Scouts will cross the bridge to receive their neckerchief for their next grade level rank and if completed, receive their rank patch.

Please sign up by May 8th on the pack website. Please note if you will be camping one night, two nights or coming Saturday only. A sign up is needed even if you just come for the day so that we can plan meals. A campout schedule and packing list are also attached (Coming Soon). Don't forget your refillable water bottle.
