WASHINGTON D.C.TRIP JULY 15-21 2018

Posted on Jul 9 2018 - 6:46am

At this time next week we will be getting ready to tour the Capital building in Washington D.C. 27 People have signed up for trip and that is the number I have been using to make reservations. As of right now Mrs Esty's office could not get us in to the White House. Mr. Work has put me in contact with a person from Sen. Murphy's office and they are working on getting us in. I mention this because a few people are only coming to get a tour of the White House and I want to make sure you know where we are at with that visit,We will be going into dozens of sites and it is going to be a great trip. We also tour the National Zoo, Arlington Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Air and Space Museum at the Airport, Nationals MLB game, Kings Dominion Water Park and much more.The cabins are beautiful and very comfortable. The Camp is Prince William Forest Park Tringle Virginia. The Troop has paid $3,700. for the use of the cabins and camp so lets make good use of your hard earned money. There is still time to come with us. Everyone will have their own bed so bring sleeping bag and pillow. No Tents needed. We will be using paper to eat to cut down on the washing time after meals. Bring a small daypack to carry stuff around D.C. It will be hot so you will need to carry water. Troop will be supplying most of the meals. Plan on buying meals when we stop on the way down and back home. You might want to have money to buy food at the Baseball game, Kings Dominion or at the Zoo. We usually break up into small groups and people buy what they want. We are leaving Sunday morning from Church Parking lot at 7:30. We need to be gone before mass starts at 8:30. We are probably going to meet Sat night at Church to organize equipment and finalize who is driving and who are taking what scouts. Will let everyone one know time during the week.
