Camp Events for the Year 2017
Events are subject to change
The following list is events for the Camp. Please check back as we will be updating it throughout the year. Please refer to it and as always if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Saturday May 6th. Honor Ceremony. Finns Point National Cemetery Salem County. 10:00 AM. Annual joint SCV/SUVCW. Unfortunately the same rules that we had to deal with last year are still in effect. No weapons and we cannot leave flags. We can leave live flowers. I know that this handcuffs us as far as our ceremony but to me it is more important that we are still there to honor than not to go. I know it is a long ride for a short ceremony, but I feel it is our duty to remember those that did not make it home.
