    ***Bus fee:  The option to drive your own family to camp is only an option once we have enough people signed up to fill the bus.  A email will be sent as soon as we reach that point.  Please see Mrs Graham or Mr Patak if you have questions.


Collections will be made at every Monday night scout event where Mika Graham is present.  Credit cards are accepted with a 3% service fee.  Alternate payment plans are available….just ask.  I’m happy to take full payment at anytime :).

PS….Don’t forget we still have another fundraising opportunity. Camp cards are a quick and easy way to pay for camp.  For every $10.00 card you sell, I will put $5 in your scout account for camp.  It is a super deal!  Watch your email for details.
