CampfireEnjoy a warm summer night with your pack at the Shaw Nature Reserve! Scouts will start the evening by working with our staff to complete award requirements. Afterwards, relax and enjoy a BBQ style dinner with your friends. We’ll then gather around the campfire for s’mores and other fun activities. Finish the night with a scenic hike around the wetlands!

Please indicate somewhere on your roster form if you plan to stay. Participants must depart by 10 a.m. the next day.
