Scouts, take the time to read through several items:   

Comprehensive RSR Information page on which the 2022 Leaders' Guide (04/15/2022) can be found.  It is not linked since the large file exceeds our website parameters.  The Leaders' Guide includes photos of two of T168's Eagles!  Sam Wetzel is on pages 2 and 7 and Matt Keating is on page 11

Wish to send something to your camper?  

Address it to:

Scout’s Name, T168, Minsi Campsite

Rodney Scout Reservation

400 Rodney Scout Road

North East, MD 21901

Due to mail/delivery delays, consider sending several days BEFORE their week of camp begins.

Alternatively, you can give personal letters to your adult leaders that are dated for when your Scout should receive it. This prevents the risk of letters not arriving in time to reach your Scouts.

Suggestion: Invest in a plastic footlocker! They're great for packing a week's worth of camp items.
