Please eat dinner beforehand.  Popcorn and treats are provided Friday evening in case scouts get hungry.

Friday activities include: Relay games, completing most of the requirements for your photography belt loop, put your map skills to good use, and watch a movie with popcorn.  Once cars are checked in they are able to be viewed just like at a real car show. 

Saturday activities include: breakfast, make paracord bracelets, and race our pinewood derby cars.  We will also be hosting a Derby Car Show.  There will be a division for 2015 cars as well as retired cars from past years, so bring your all your cars for a chance to win a certificate.  Winners will be announced right before the race begins.

The success of the camp-in depends on parent volunteers, please sign up to help make this a fun and successful event.
