REMINDER: Return Camp Equipment

Posted on Nov 13 2023 - 7:19pm

PARENTS: To support the many troop outings, the troop (and each family) has invested in high quality camping equipment. Please help the troop keep the camping equipment clean and intact. After each outing, your Scout may come home with a piece of camping equipment that his Patrol used. It is his responsibility to clean, inventory, repack and return the item within the week. If it is a tent, it is especially important to open, air & dry out and then repack. He is to bring items to the next troop meeting, or contact the Troop's scout Quartermaster Carson so that it can be returned to the troop trailer.
