MARCH 7-8, Troop 623 come out and support our 13 FCEs for their first official campout as Boy Scouts.  This local campout, O'Neill Park Campsite 58-59 (under Rupp family), will offer many opportunities for our FCEs to cook as a patrol, complete their Tote 'n Chit, Fireman Chit, and earn a night of camping.  You may borrow anything you need from the troop trailer.  You MUST get it PRIOR to the weekend...it will not be at O'Neill. You must supply your own meals Saturday lunch thru Sunday breakfast.  Remember your ten essentials!  $5 per vehicle--drop off or carpool recommended.
