Harvest Fest – October 28-29

Join us for Harvest Fest at Camp Acahela this weekend. We are staffing the Dutch oven station and really need additional volunteers on Saturday from 11-6 and Sunday from 10-5.

DIRECTIONS TO ACAHELA HERE

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

·         Cinnamon/raisin rolls

·         Apple Cobbler

·         Chicken and dumplings

·         Pizza

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!

Class A uniforms and bring an Apron or hand towell to cook.
