Troop Scouts (and attending adults) have decided!  Troop 216 will attend CAMP FIESTA on June 24th – 30th.  Camp Fiesta is located on the Mission Bay in San Diego.  2017 Camp Fee was $475 for Scout and $295 for Adults; camp will release exact Camp Fee for 2018 in October.  Additional fees include transportation, additional meals while traveling, possible night at campsite or hotel, MB fees, mid-week camp adventure to be determined by the group, camp shirt, and items that your scout might want to purchase at the camp shop.

Sign up early, so the troop can ensure a spot for your Scout (and Adult)!   A $100 non refundable deposit is due by Dec. 15th.  The troop had to give an estimate, based on initial interest sign-ups, so there are a limited number of spots.  The troop can try to change the number, if the sign-ups justify, prior to December, 2017.
