Summer Camp Information
Clay Watkins and Dan Stantz shared summer camp information with new scout parents and answered questions. They shared pictures and blog posts written from Tesomas in 2012. The camp Tesomas experience is truly one of a kind. This year four Troop 35 scouts (two present and two former) will be working at Tesomas on staff, what a statement. If you have time, go back and check it out, below are the links for the last three summer camps.

See you Sunday, april 14th at Gary United Methodist Church for the Court of Honor!
