New Website Coming Mid-October




We received very positive feedback from Peterloon 2014—and specifically heard that most of the activities, vendors and events were very well received.  As such,  we plan on bringing most of those events back in 2016 and will add even more-- including exciting, theme-oriented activities to make 2016 appeal to an even more diverse scouting audience with more options than our last great event.
