Alford Family Farm Campout

Posted by pharris on May 6 2021 - 9:20pm

 

 We will meet at CBF at 5:30 Friday, everyone should eat dinner before arrival. It looks like a great weekend for camping highs around 88F and lows at night in the mid 60sF. As alway a scout is prepared bring your 10 essentials, rain gear, Sun Screen, and insect repellent are always important equipment. 

We will travel in class A uniform, I recommend wearing your class B under your uniform so you can switch when we arrive at camp. 

We will be camping at the Alford Family Farm near Emory, Tx May 7-9. Scouts will be able to work on the Fishing Merit Badge, and scouts will enjoy fishing in one of the ponds at the farm. In addition we are hoping to have some conservation opportunities for those that need hours for rank advancement. 

Scouts that plan to fish should bring their own fishing equipment.

Everyone attending must complete the online COVID screening document before arrival at CBF. You can complete the screening by following this link.
