Adult Help Needed

Friday:

  • Some boys have asked if the attending adults would do the campfire entertainment on Friday night, setting an example for the patrols do entertainment (skits, etc) on Saturday night.

Saturday:

  • Mr. Brooks has volunteered to lead the ARCHERY activity Saturday morning. His plan is to have this be a patrol watermelon shoot competition. He will probably need 1 or 2 more adults to help him.
  • We still need someone to lead the afternoon AQUATICS activity. Besides conducting swim checks, it would be nice if we could have another patrol competition. (examples: Canoe relay, Canoe Swamping race, etc.) We'll need someone to be in charge of this activity and a couple helpers.

Sunday:

  • We need an adult to take point working with the Chaplain's Aide on Sunday morning's INTERFAITH SERVICE with Rose & Thorn review.

If you are planning on staying at this campout and do not want to volunteer for one of the above needs. We need an adult GRUBMASTER (and assistant), to prepare meals for the adults.

If you'd like to volunteer for any of this, or just let me know that you are going to be attending the campout. Use the link below, or contact me directly at jason@norred.net or call/text at 678-516-0146.
