We will once again be camping on South Holston Lake later this month.
Two nights of island camping – that’s what we’re offering up, along with canoeing, motorboating, kayaking, and more! The annual camping weekend at South Holston Lake has always been one of our scouts’ favorites. We will meet at 4:00 p.m. on Friday July 29 at the church. The cost for this trip is $25, which covers all meals and fuel for the boats. We can accommodate folks who need to come late or leave early – we just need to coordinate rendezvous times at the dock, so please let us know by email or on Tuesday night before we leave.
One event that always excites the troop is for a member to get called out at mail call! This usually means goodies from home! (if you send something on Monday, it will provide a mid-week “morale boost” for campers)
Please send mail addressed:
