This year's Gold Rush is called "Finding the Pirate's Treasure". It will feature the same focus of Leave no trace through games and scavenger hunt, there will be booths setup for education by fire department, sheriff, and ambulance, as well as shooting sports. All activities are focused to help scouts complete many adventures. In the evening, we will have a carnival where families can enjoy food, pirate fun, and hot air balloons. All meals are on your own, or purchase a Pirate's Dinner through us at the carnival, along with slushies, funnel cakes, and more. What is your best pirate costume? Webelos scouts have a wider variety of classes to choose from that focus on serving the needs of our camp and teaching scouts.

We are looking forward to a great opportunity for all scouts to learn and enjoy the fun.
