Cub Scout Day Camp 2015 dates are set! Mark your calendars now!

All, though it's still the summer of 2014, we're already making plans for Cub Scout Day Camp 2015! Camp will be from Monday, June 15th 2015 until Friday June 19th, 2015. The location will be the same, at Union Grove United Methodist Church. There will be much more information coming out about Day Camp in the fall, but I wanted to make sure that you could go ahead and start your planning and especially make plans to volunteer. We need as many multiple-day volunteers as we can get, as having continuity from our leaders makes everything run more smoothly.
