Our Scoutmaster, Mr. D’Elia will procure all of the ingredients for the following recipies:

·         Cinnamon/raisin rolls

We are stationed at the Twins cabins. If you would like to camp overnight – you can do so in the cabins. Please show your scout spirit and respond to the Scoutmaster, Mr. D’Elia via email as soon as possible if you are able to help out. If you know nothing about Dutch oven cooking – that’s perfect, you will be an expert by the end of the day. You can come one or both days, just let us know. Your help will lead to the success of the event! If you have not been camping yet this year – we need to see you there, NO MATTER YOUR RANK!

Popcorn for Scouting!

Why Sell Popcorn?
• Scouts gain confidence, salesmanship and communication skills, and a sense of accomplishment. The popcorn sale is not about selling popcorn, it’s about promoting Scouting and the Scouting ideals!

• It is an opportunity for all Scouts to earn monies towards their Scouting expenses.

• The popcorn sale helps the Council raise money for improving the summer camp facilities/building new camp locations, offering more extensive training for our volunteer leaders and members, and helping us get to know and serve the needs of our volunteers and Units better.
