Campsite: We have the Ottertail campsite this year.
It's a great location -- a little farther away than Lone Pine, but overlooking a beautiful lake. (see map)
Other Troop: We were going to share a campsited with a troop from Durand, but our numbers grew too much, so we switched to Ottertail in May to make sure that every Scout would get a bunk.
Cabins: The campsite has seven 4-man cabins, so we have room for up to 28 Scouts and adults.
Adult help: Each campsite must have two adults each night.
(We must pay $40/night for camp staff for any night we don't have two adults there.)
Activities: Merit badges are the backbone of summer camp! (see MB schedule)
(If you'll be 13 by June 2009 and want to come to our six-day high-adventure canoe trip in the Boundary Waters, you should sign up for the Canoeing Merit Badge.)
