Family Snow Camp!

 

The snow is here and we are offering Troop families a chance to join together for a winter weekend at Camp Sylvester near Dodge Ridge in Pinecrest, California. No worries – this is not snow shelter camping, we will sharing heated camp cabins and a kitchen! (still need sleeping bags & pads for the bunk beds) We will leave Friday night and return Sunday afternoon. We will share a Troop dinner on Saturday night, and Troop breakfast Sunday morning. Families are responsible for other meals, although we could coordinate as we finalize reservations — lots of flexibility! Dodge Ridge is nearby for Skiing and Snowboarding, and there are plenty of areas for snow play and sledding. Lodging is $50 per person; meals cost TBD depending on plans.

Plan to join us for some white fluffy fun!
