Lunch: Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and is open seating.  Lunch is a light meal.  Activities will be closed down from Noon-1:00 p.m. so our hard working volunteers can enjoy lunch.

Campfire: There is a campfire on Saturday night at the council ring.  Packs or Dens will be given the chance to perform a skit, song, or story.  All performances must be approved by the event director prior to campfire.  We will meet at 8 p.m. to go as a group up to the council ring.

Sunday Breakfast:  Breakfast is from 8:00-9:00 a.m. and is a Continental breakfast.  Breakfast is open seating.

Departure: Chapel is over around 9:25 a.m.  Time to head home!  Everyone should police each campsite before leaving.  Remember that a scout is clean and always leaves a campsite cleaner than when they found it.  Trash must be packed out.  Camp closes at 11:30, if you plan to stay longer, you must clear this with the staff and the Ranger.
