September Camping

The December outing is a backpacking trip to Grayson Highlands State Park .

The 224 adults are tracking the weather for this upcoming weekend to Mount Rogers.  The trip will remain as scheduled unless the roads are unsafe.  At that point we will reevaluate our destination. Please ensure you boys pack accordingly for the trip as there could be below freezing temperatures. This will be a great weekend to be out and we will ensure everyone has the gear they need.  If you are going you MUST bring your pack tonight (Dec 4th).
