Cabin Camping Trip, Resica Falls, Jan. 6,7,8

The troop will be cabin camping the weekend of Jan 6,7,8 at Resica Falls Scout Reservation in East Stroudsburg, PA.  The troop needs a full head count of everyone going, so all scouts need to contact their patrol leaders ASAP to inform them if they are going or not and also if their parent plans on going so accommodations can be set and meals can be planned. Cub scouts will be invited on this trip also so a good turnout of troop members is needed. All scouts able to make it should attend. This is always a fun trip, we will be showing movies as we have done in the past and we will be going to a local ski mountain where scouts can either tube or ski. Cost for the trip is $25. If you plan on tubing please bring an extra $30 or skiing bring an extra $90. Be sure to bring appropriate clothing if you intend on tubing, skiing or if there is enough snow on the ground in camp to sleigh ride. If you bring a sled bring a helmet. Permission slips available HERE are due next Thursday 12/29, there is no meeting so you need to get them to Mr Kulins..
