May Camping at RSR and Council Fishing Derby

Posted on Mar 12 2021 - 4:05pm

Our May campout will be at the Rainbow Scout Reservation in Morris, IL. We will meet at the parking lot of Young School on Cedar Rd. at 5:00pm on Friday, May 7th and head out to the camp. We will return Sunday, May 9th around 10:00am. It is possible we may be home earlier since RSR is a short ride. It all depends on when we can be packed up and out. On Saturday, we will take part in the Council Fishing Derby at the Will County Sportsman’s Club: ttps://scoutingevent.com/702-2020FishingDerby
