The theme for Twilight Camp 2014 is Time Warp. Dalinda and Jim are already working on the program and logistics that go into putting on Twilight Camp. Camp has been moved this year to Paschall Park, and with the new location come new challenges and new opportunities for a renewed camp experience for our youth.
Please check the Twilight Camp website at http://www.easternskies.net/twilightcamp for news, and information.

The Boy Scouts of America has announced that effective January 1, 2014 that the national fee to be a member of the BSA will be $24. We wanted to share this with you as soon as possible so that you can begin preparing for the recharter process. This fee equals only $2 per month. This does include units with a December 31, 2013, expiration date. For those who join after the beginning of the year, the fee will be prorated at $2 per month.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your District Executive. Thank you for your service to the young people of our area. We are truly grateful.
