We have scheduled an Overnight Trip to Galveston Island, Wolf Pack Park on April 28th & 29th, 2018.  The Young Marines will be staying on the USS Cavalla, WWII Submarine. 

There will be a charge of $15 per Young Marine for assistance in the cost of this trip.  If you are having a hard time paying this, please talk to us.  We don’t want to leave any YM behind because of money!


Remember, that your YM needs to be in Attendance at least 2 Drills prior to any Encampment in order to be eligible to go on Encampments (ie, Galveston Sub). 

Recruits, in addition to this requirement, will be qualified by Registered Adults as to ability to act properly as a Young Marine.


Also, please remember that if your Young Marine/Recruit cannot make YM Drill, Please Text or E-Mail me.  This will constitute an Excused Absence for Perfect Attendance Award if not over 3 Excused Absences.
