Troop 284 August 2019 Campout - Living Waters Canoe Ministry UPDATE

Posted on Aug 15 2019 - 3:38pm
The current troop Scout transportation is for a roster of 30 Scouts registered on the troop website to attend the Living Waters Canoe Camp out. There are Scouts arriving early on Saturday morning and leaving Saturday night after the float trip. There are 8 adults registered to attend and provide transportation. The current known attendance head count provided indicates that the troop transportation is not adequate (see below). There are conservative estimate for Scouts to be transported and shows: 1. Leg A - church to camp = 26 Scouts, 2. Leg B - Leg B - camp to church = 25 Scouts. That is a maximum of 4 Scouts that will not have a ride to or from the camp. Please let us know if you are able to attend and provide transportation.
