The Short-term Camping Availability ChartExternal Link

For Camps Crown and Oakarro. Reservations are often being finalized, so some may not be reflected.  This Google doc automatically updates whenever I update mine.  I can complete reservations for all weekends shown on the chart.  It shows if a camp is closed for a camporee, training, etc.  It also shows if a specific building or area is reserved.  If closed or reserved, it is highlighted in yellow or blue.  If a weekend's "box" is still white, complete the request form below.
