Campout This Weekend

Posted on May 19 2022 - 11:13pm

Hello everyone, I just wanted to update you on the status of the campout. We have been monitoring the weather closely, and as of now, it looks like we should miss all the thunderstorms. However, Saturday will still probably be a very wet day. The campout is still on as planned, but I recommend everyone bring rain gear. We may have to adjust the schedule/location of activities/meals, but we will decide that as we go based on the weather. We do have a pavilion reserved, so we may move many of the activities there.
