SUMMER MERIT CAMP 2014
Summer Merit Camp 2014
Summer Merit Camp is a summer camp where boys just happen to earn merits, and some really fun merits too!
A staff of top notch, servant leaders has been assembled to minister to your Rangers during this 4 day, 3 night adventure. This year the Adventure and Expedition Rangers will be earning five, hands-on merits, culminating in a snorkeling, canoeing, beach trip on Saturday.
Registration opens at Pow Wow and SPACE IS LIMITED! We’ve had to turn away Rangers at the past two SMCs, so DON’T DELAY AND REGISTER EARLY!
Don’t let your Rangers miss out on a great opportunity to earn merits, experience God’s love, and make some new friends, so share this information with your Rangers and parents.
