SUMMER CAMP sign ups!!!! Our troop is planning on attending Boy Scout Camp this summer at Mataguay Scout Ranch located just northeast of San Diego. We plan on going during our usual week starting July 7 through July13. Camp Mataguay offers an amazing program at an extremely reasonable price - just $405 per scouts!! With a relatively short drive, this camp provides an excellent opportunity for our troop. We need to put a deposit down on a campsite this week, which means we need to start to gauge interest from out troop. I’ve included a link below for more information from Mataguay Scout Ranch.

We need to submit an initial roster of scouts attending by January 31, 2019. The payment schedule is listed below:

1/31/2019 - Payment 1 $105/ scout
2/28/2019 - Payment 2 $105/scout
3/31/2019 - Payment 3 $105/scout
4/30/2019 - Final payment of balance due/scout
