We will camp on base and hike the Wright Memorial Trail in the morning.  That afternoon the Scouts will tour the museum.  This is a special trip we only do once every few years, so don't miss out!  

NOTE:  We need you to sign up and pay for this trip by March 6th, the same night you register for the Tuscazoar campout.  The Air Force needs more notice than most places and we have to turn in money early.  

CHANGE FROM NORMAL: We will leave at 5:00 pm instead of 6:00 pm on Friday as it is a 5-hour drive. We have 1 planned rest stop going down (gas and facilities), and one returning on Sunday (lunch). We expect to be back and available for pick up around 4 pm on Sunday after hanging tents and securing equipment back in the building.


More information for the trip to come.

When driving enter at Gate 12A. Once on base, getting to camp can be quite convoluted so use the following link: Google map: Gate 12A to Scout Camp

Cell phones will not work well if trying to contact other leaders once on base.
