UPDATE - May Family Campout - Emma Long Metropolitan Park

Posted on May 11 2016 - 8:13am

NEW LOCATION:  Emma Long Metropolitan Park

Why the new location? The troop has grown significantly in the past year and Canyon Lake would not provide the group camping and easy water access that we need. And with Troop 511 being Scout led, several Scouts in leadership positions were given a list of pros and cons of each location and were asked to make the final decision.
