Summer Camp Final Payment Past Due / Merit badges

Resica Falls Scout Reservation summer camp final payment is past due. Final payments need to be sent out by this week. There are also still a couple of extra spots still open if anyone has changed their mind and wants to go.

Also, everyone needs to make their choices for Merit badges being taken if they have not already so they do not get shut out. Please contact Mr. Massoni if you have any questions.
