Gade Lander has again agreed to coordinate or Thursday night dinner for summer 
camp next week and I’m forwarding her email below to our group. 

Please contact Gade directly on how you plan to help.


Family night at scout camp

Hi everyone! Family night for summer camp will be Thursday night (July 7). 
Families are invited to arrive anytime after 5:30 pm. Please be there by 6:00 
pm.  The scouts will have a flag ceremony at the campsite and then we will have 
dinner.  The Campfire will begin with Retreat at 7:45 pm by the dining hall and 
will conclude by 9:30 pm. For the parents of first time Boy Scouts, the order 
of the evening is as such:  After dinner, they will have a flag ceremony and 
will shoot the cannon. Then everyone goes to the amphitheater for the campfire 
and some brief entertainment provided by the counselors. There will also be  a 
"tapping" ceremony for Order of the Arrow. 

We will have a potluck dinner this year.  Please bring enough of an item for 
your family plus 2. We will have a troop from Florida sharing our campground 
this year, and as they are from a distant location, they will provide us with 
nonperishable items for our dinner. They will be providing cups, napkins, 
silverware.  I will need parents to volunteer to bring soft drinks and water 
bottles, main dishes, sides and desserts, so please let me know what you can 
bring. Please email me at tlander@xxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:tlander@xxxxxxxxxxxx>  
or call me at 266-5365 by July 5 to let me know what you will be able to bring. 
 Again, we need:

·         main dishes ( maybe your scout’s favorite dish?)

·         sides

·         desserts

·         drinks

·         chips

 We are in the Chippewa camp site again this year. It is located in the curve 
of "Water Tank" road immediately adjacent to Boy Scout Camp Road. Please park 
on the side of the road and look for our scouts who will direct you to the 
campsite. Please remember to bring camp chairs and your rain gear just in 
case!!!   Take a flashlight, because it will be dark when you head back to the 

 Looking forward to seeing everyone.
