CAMP BUFFALOSEPT 26, 27, 28 – MONTICELLO, IN

Registration deadline is Sunday, September 14. Wolf Park, camping and more! The cost is $16 per scout.

Our next camping trip will be September 26, 27 & 28, 2014 to Camp Buffalo, Monticello, Indiana. This trip will feature a side trip to the Wolf Park (yes, there really is a park with real wolves in central Indiana) and serious games of capture the flag. It will also provide individual scouts and scout patrols opportunities that they need for patrol activity, menu planning cooking and all kinds of opportunity for the advancement trail. Camp Buffalo is on the Tippecanoe River, so a fishing rod might not be a bad idea, especially if you need to catch some fish to finish Fishing Merit Badge.

Not only that, but when was the last time that you were up close and personal with real wolves? We have gone to the Wolf Park in the past and the scouts have really enjoyed the experience. We have howled with them and watched as they worked together as a team to stalk a real live buffalo. (No buffalos were killed or injured in this demonstration.)

For this trip we will need drivers who will stay for the duration so that we can achieve transport to the Wolf Park on Saturday (30 ish miles). Come on out and have some fun with the scouts. We will loan you a DEEELUXE tent with zippers and everything! See the guys in action – eat food outdoors (where it always tastes better) and have a relaxed weekend! Return on Sunday, rested, relaxed and ready to cut the lawn, and catch up on your other chores for the weekend. Piece of cake! I do it all the time! Cost per scout is $16.00 (which includes the wolf park) plus the cost of patrol food. {Tell the patrol to skip the filet mignon this time and go with the ground beef or the chicken breasts.}

Due date for money and activity form is September 14 (BY COINCIDENCE we have a family event that day too! A perfect time to turn in your reservation. What a system!)
