Prepare for Cold Winter Camping This Weekend

Parents and Scouts,

It is very important that extra care is taken for preparing for this weekend’s trip due to the lower temperatures.   Please come with long johns, fleece, layers, wool socks, warm hat & gloves, cold weather sleeping bag, etc.

The scouts will be checked in by an adult leader to assure they are properly attired and have packed the necessary gear for cold weather camping before the parent leaves the VFW tonight.
