May 20 is our Spring Picnic. We will celebrate our last meeting of the summer with hotdogs and burgers provide by Woodland UMC. Each den will organize sides to share with each other and with our cooks from Woodland. Your den leaders will have more info on that. This is also our last chance to present rank awards to our scouts. At the end of the meeting our scouts will officially "Rank Up" to the next level in scouting! June 1 starts the next scout year for them.

June 13 - 15 is our Resident Summer Camp at Camp Durant! To register:
Price is $100 for the first scout and then $50 if you have a sibling or a second scout attending. Scouts must be a Tiger or above to attend. Remember that when you register your scout they will be at the next rank for summer camp. So if you have a current Lion, they will be a Tiger by summer camp so that is what you put on registration. You must be a registered leader as an adult in order to attend and the cost is $30. Please send me a copy of your receipt that you will get by email after registration is complete. That way we can be sure everyone going gets the correct information.

June 17-21 is the York District Day Camp. Check-in on June 16 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm at Bethelwoods. This check-in is for medical form turn-in, t-shirt pick-up, etc. Attendance for check-in is mandatory for your scout to participate throughout the week.
