We will go camp on the Camp Joy BSA scout property, we have a nice lake side camping spot.  We will work on the Fishing Merit Badge requirements, if we have equipment, Fly Fishing.  We do not have a Merit Badge counselor lined up yet but we will go over the requirements so they know the skills.  There are going to be per-requisites that the boys will need to research before hand.

Let's go CANOEING! Test you balance and communication skills, stay dry or we might have soggy bread for lunch.  If you worked hard and earned 'Swimmer' at summer camp there is a benefit to be had here, ALL swimming levels are welcome.  There is a possibility for a small cave to go through as well.  Details are getting worked out.
