the registration form is available through a link near the bottom of the page - http://moreyspiers.com/youth.htm#jam

I'm confused as to why GS wouldnt like it but BS lets it happen.....or maybe, its just this one girl scout troup that doesnt like the lack of guards.
iNTeNSeBLue98 said:It might be our council. I think they frown over concerns for safety. But yes, it is too cold for swimming. The year I went we woke up to high winds, practically blowing our tents down. The second year DD went they had a soaking rain and I think they got a room for the second night.
