Arrow of Lights Scouts (grade 5) this is a great opportunity for you to camp Saturday night with a Troop.  Remember, visiting and camping with a troop is a requirement for AOL.  Cub Scouts can head for home whenever they feel their day is complete; just don’t forget the big Grandstand Show Saturday evening!

Young Eagle Flights on Saturday
One of the highlights of the weekend are the Young Eagle airplane rides.  For an additional $5.00 per Scout, youth (grade 3 – age 18)  will receive an approximate 30 minutes plane ride.  Rides are given two participants at a time, so the promise of your group staying together cannot be made.  This is a very popular event so be sure to register early.  Rides will be offered from 9am – Noon on Saturday.  Everyone must complete two forms; the Young Eagles Flight Form and the  BSA Parent Consent for Miner to Fly form.   Transportation to and from the airport will be provided.   This event is weather sensitive and could possibly be cancelled at the last minute; we will “Do Our Best” to make it happen!  Time slots will be assigned after registration closes.   

Please sign up for the Young Eagle Flight during the registration process.  Flights are limited to 120 participants so register early!
