Join us for this year's Spring Camporee at Pine View Campgroud in Fort McCoy. The theme for this year is Highland Games! We will be competing in games on Saturday afternoon after the Safety Merit Badge held that morning. 

Webelos & Arrow of Light Scouts encouraged to attend! We are offering the Totin chip & Whittling chip for these scouts during the time of the Scouts BSA Safety Merit Badge.

Parents: If you have a Webelos Scout and are wondering what the transition from Cub Scouts to Scouts BSA would be like, we have a great opportunity for you! On Saturday, we will be hosting a Parent's Crossover Forum hosted by Parents who have been through it!

Safety Merit Badge Presentation will include a fire safety demonstration using the Fort McCoy smoke house & a fire extinguisher demonstration! Thank you to the Safety personel at Fort McCoy for volunteering their time.
