If you would like more information about the local council or scout camping and hiking in eastern Missouri, Illinois, or at local scout camps then check out the Greater St. Louis Area Council's (GSLAC's) Home Page. 2001 marked the Troop's 41st consecutive year at long-term camp, a string started back in 1961.
