High School Summer Campers!!

All High School Summer Campers,

If you plan on bringing your own tent to Summer Camp, it needs to come to Shakedown and be set up for inspection.  If tents aren't inspected, they are not coming to camp.

If for some reasson, your tent can not make it to camp, please reach out to me and we'll discuss other options.
