Start Planning Your Camporees Now

It’s time to start planning those camporees for the fall and spring. 

The council will begin taking reservations on June 1, and as usual, we anticipate that slots will fill up quickly.  To reserve Mobile-area camps, contact Barbara Davis, and for Montgomery- and Wiregrass-area camps, contact Sherry Henderson.  Please note, there is a $50 deposit required to reserve camp for a camporee.
