we will assume you are attending the make up weekend and purchase food. There is no need to re-register, but it would be helpful to get an email which lets us know that you are planning on attending the rescheduled weekend.
If you registered and paid for multiple people, please let us know who you are requesting a refund for and who is still attending. All refunds will go to the person who paid for the group.
We will be holding the ordeal conclave but will not be able to host the Brotherhood ceremony at the make-up weekend. We are sorry about this, for more information on possible options please email Kay Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be purchasing the food on Wednesday evening, so if others would like to join us to help get the camp ready, they can go to the following link to register by Wednesday May 8th

We will still be doing Cub Scout Leader training at the April roundtable, so if you need training or have changed positions in the pack, you can still get your training there!
