Upper Platte River Camping and Fly fishing
The last weekend in August is a great opportunity to go camping, plant some trees to restore the forest and do some fly fishing!
The Coalition for the Upper Platte River is doing forest restoration to help restore what the fires burned.  Troop 88 is going to be part of that effort.
More information will be coming on this trip but you can visit the Coalition’s website in the mean time.


One more thing – when we do go on campouts, you have to have your medical forms completed.  Instead of me trying to explain what form is needed for which campouts, please use the link below to the Dever Area Council’s site that has a great explanation on what you need when.
