Summer Camp Kia Kima

The Troop 80 Summer Camp at Camp Kia Kima in Hardy, Arkansas was spectacular! The scouts had a great time earning merit badges, participating in fun activities, meeting new friends, and exploring and discovering new places.

The complete photo library can be found here and pictures will be uploaded as they are gathered but if you want a sneak peak, please read below.

Our trip started with a stop over in Marshall, Texas where scouts rode a train and explored the local area.
