Program highlights include: Pre-75th anniversary celebration of Camp Oljato - one of the premier Scout camps west of the Rockies! Famous for its aquatics program, Camp Oljato opened its doors in 1941 and has welcomed Scouts ever since! The evening will feature a delicious 3-course dinner, dancing and live auction, hosted by Frank Bizzarro and Bizzaro's Gala Auctions! Other surprises await, so don't miss a wonderful evening of fun and fellowship, all the while benefiting our Scouts and Scouting programs! We hope to see you there!
JUST ADDED! Our evening's special guest speaker will be Troop 33 Eagle Scout, John Wilken! John is currently a junior studying aquatic biology at UC Santa Barbara. Last spring, John was selected as the NESA Eagle Scout Artic Marine Biologist for the 2015 NESA World Explorer Program, and spent several weeks this summer as a member of a research expedition studying Narwhals in the Artic. John joined leader Dr. Martin Nweeia of Harvard University and the Smithsonian Institution, Dr. Winston Kuo of Harvard and several Inuit from Baffin Island, Canada on the expedition.
