Wake up with the sunrise and enjoy breakfast. Registration for the campout is required. Each registered participant will receive two meals (dinner on Friday evening and pancake and sausage breakfast on Saturday morning, vegetarian option available if requested by September 10), s’mores and a t-shirt.
