Winter Camp 2013 – Wish You Were Here!

Clear blue and sunny skies are making for great conditions at Winter Camp at Buffalo Trail Scout Ranch. The sky is lit up with the winter sky at night. Troops from across the state are enjoying the merit badges classes and programs being offered. We wish you were here to enjoy the experience. Pictures will be updated each day showcasing the activities the Scouts are participating in. Watch for registration information for Winter Camp 2014 in the near future.
