Scouts, we're gearing up for our January Campout at Snowshoe Mountain resort in West Virginia.
Campout dates are Jan 24 - Jan 26th. We'll be leaving from AUMC Friday at 4PM and returning Sunday around 2PM.
You must signup using the form at the link below, or on the paper form at Troop meetings. Preferred method is online.
We'll be staying at Buckskin Scout Reservation in Marlinton, WV
We are finalizing quotes for the weekend, but costs are expected to be as follows:

Ski Rentals/Lift Ticket/Gas/lodging: $130 - (give to Mr. Parker or Mr. Knight BEFORE TROOP MEETING JAN 14th - CUTOFF!) 
Optional Ski lessons: $60. Recommended if you've never skied before. Also recommend you check out some YouTube videos for basic skills before the trip. 
Food Sat lunch/Dinner: $20 (est. - food from lodge restaurants. Keep you own money)
Food Sat/Sun bkfst: $5-$10. Scout Patrols to bring their own easy cereal, oatmeal. Something hearty that will keep you going for some hard skiing on the slopes. Leave the donuts at home!

We're getting information on Ski Lessons if you'd like them. More to follow.
There will be snowboards available for rental too, but only rent these if you have snowboarded before. Don't plan on learning on the slope.

If interested and confirmed you can pay the cost, sign up below. Use money from your Scout accounts if necessary.
