IRON CHEF CAMPOUT!

It's that time of year again! For our November campout, we will be doing the Iron Chef at Camp Braak on November 12th-14th.

On Friday, Boy Scouts and their male mentors will set up camp at Braak, with the Jr. and Sr. Webelos joining them for lunch on Saturday. After the Jr. Webelos depart, the Scouts and Sr. Webelos will take a hike. Later in the afternoon, the Scouts will divide into patrols and be introduced to the 'secret' ingredient. Each patrol will do their best to create three mouthwatering entrees, with the Sr. Webelos being the ultimate judges of each patrol's expertise!
