The Orem Scout Shop held an evening event on summer camping May 18, 2013. Dutch Oven cooking, learning about supplies and some fun activities rounded out the evening event. Ali Mohammad, Senior Store Manager, coordinated the event. “Evening events are a great way to learn or ask questions about Scouting activities and find out what supplies are available to make your Scout experience more enjoyable” said Ali.
A Scout has to deal with the elements which is not always fun. And in Utah you sometimes never know what kind of weather you are going to get. The morning can be miserable with cold winds and by afternoon it is a beautiful, sunny day.
Unless you are an experienced Scouter it is difficult to know everything you need to go camping or even what is available. The Scout Shop in Orem is going to begin holding monthly evening events to help educate and inform families about products and needs Scouter’s may have.
The next event is a Jamboree evening where you can learn all about preparing for the Jamboree. Everyone is welcome to attend even if you are not going on the Jamboree but would like to learn more about it. The event is June 18, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
