Campouts - Boys leave from Lincoln Middle School Basketball Court at 1501 California Avenue in Santa Monica at 7:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning. All boys should bring a sack lunch for Saturday and about $5.00 to buy lunch on the trip home. Boys are returned to their homes Sunday afternoon, usually between 2-4p.m. Scouts must be in full uniform traveling to and from camp and are responsible for bringing the required gear. With advance arrangements, equipment such as tents can be shared. Patrol leaders are responsible for arranging food for the patrol and costs are shared. Scouts not yet in patrols need to report to the assistant scoutmaster in charge of their rank.
