Thanks for voting; the results are in!  We will be camping at STSR for Spring FamCamp.

---Original Post---

Pack 553, we need your help.  An interesting opportunity has arisen, but we need to know if YOU want to take advantage of it!

Pack 553 has made plans to attend the April 28-30 FamCamp Weekend at Spanish Trails Scout Reservation (STSR).  However, we just learned that the BSA Scout Weekend at Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, GA, is the same weekend.  Wild Adventures is about a 3.5 hour drive.

We have to decide (and quickly!) which camp we want to attend.  Here's some details:

Regular FamCamp.  Check in Friday night, activities all day Saturday and Sunday morning, Campfire Saturday night.  Activities include Archery, BB's, leatherwork, hiking, swimming, boating, fishing.  Cost is $14 per person.

Camp Friday and Saturday nights.  Includes admission to the Park and Splash Island Water Park Saturday AND Sunday, with a meal voucher for Saturday lunch inside the park, a bottomless soda wristband for Saturday, a campfire Saturday night, a fishing excursion prior to the park opening on Sunday, and free parking passes.  Cost is $46 per person (regular one-day admission to Wild Adventures is $48 per person).

Please look at the websites for both events, then take our poll!  We need to hear from you as soon as possible in order to make the ticket ordering deadline for either event.
