NEF 2019 Important Information

Dear Arrowman - I hope you're looking forward to the New England Fellowship this weekend as much as I am! I've included logistical information and a packing list below for you to review. Please note that there will not be dinner served at the event on Friday night, so you should eat something before arriving.

Arrival & Departure Times
ARRIVAL TIME: Anytime between 4:00pm and 10:00pm on Friday
DEPARTURE TIME: 11:00am on Sunday
LOCATION: Treasure Valley Scout Reservation, 394 Pleasantdale Road, Rutland, MA 01543. Upon arrival through the side gate, you will check-in at the large field with solar panels.

All food this weekend will be provided by the staff for the event, so Scouts do not need to cook their own meals like at other camping trips. They will eat in the camp's dining area and also do not need to bring a mess kit.

Sleeping Arrangements
You will be staying in a two person canvas tent with a platform, much like those you will see at any scout camp. You will also have a metal cot and mattress, so all you need to bring for sleeping is a sleeping bag.

All participants are responsible for their own transportation. Parking at the camp will be extremely limited, so please carpool if possible.
