I can’t even *begin* to tell you how excited I am about the upcoming summer camps planned! This coming year, we are spending a week on Huntington Lake in California at the EPIC Camp Kern!!! The boys voted two weeks ago and reservations have been set for summer 2013! Our boys do a three year rotation of summer camps. One year locally in council, the second year somewhere in the WESTERN U.S., and the third year is a NATIONAL camp. Summer 2014 is one you don’t want to miss the voting for, because right now for the National trip is including places like SEA-BASE in Florida, Campbell River Alaska area, and the US Virgin Islands. Uhm… I don’t know about you, but I am ok with ANY of those options!!!
Now… how are we going to PAY for this you ask? GOOD QUESTION, and to that I say: WE GOT THIS!!! Our troop has been blessed with being able to man/attend/run a parking lot that corners up to the local FARMER’S MARKET. Each Saturday we have customers that pay $5 to park their car in our private lot right next to the market. We have a GREAT time doing it, and our boys make money to pay for summer camp and other activities throughout the year. 🙂 National trips take a bit more financing, which is why we plan 2 years ahead for those trips, and boys save up funds for those.
I am adding a link to a video on you-tube about Camp Kern… I hope you enjoy it, and if you’re interested in joining us, we meet every Tuesday at 7pm at Fir Grove Elementary School in Beaverton. We love seeing new faces & meeting new people, stop by & see us when you get a chance! 🙂
