    I’m the publisher of Southern Utah Family and Kids Magazine and am trying to reach the marketing/PR person for the Moab Base Camp and Cedar City Boy Scout camps. We are publishing our Summer Camp feature in the upcoming issues and would like to include information about your Southern Utah Boy Scout camps and how families and their boys can participate.

    Please forward this to the person responsible for these camps and have them reach out to me asap.

    Thank you,

    Michelle Sundberg
