More Room At Camp ……
Both CFL Webelos Sessions 1 and 2 have re-opened for 50 additional Scouts on 5-7-15.
We ask that at this time, if you have already registered for a Webelos Camp Session 1-2 or 3, that you remain in your current registered session. The programs have been planned and we cannot accomodate requests to switch campers from already planned sessions.
We are pleased to be able to make the 50 additional accommodations per camp for those who would not otherwise be able to attend camp due to the unexpected (but happy) situation with the early closure of registrations!!!
