Stearns Hammock camp 2021
This site is designed to keep you in touch with what is happening with Scouts. We will do our best to keep the site as up to date as possible.
Every second Tuesday of a month, we do Boards of Review for our scouts. These meetings are the last step for a scout to attain a rank. The adults needed for a Board of Review cannot be people that the scouts regularly interact with so the scout leaders are excluded. The Boards of Review for the year are scheduled in the sheet at the link above. Please sign up for a few so we can be covered for these important meetings. Pre-meet at 7:40 p.m. with the boards of review starting at 8 p.m.
