What to bring to Monstro Camp

Here's a quick list to help you get started: Trade Goods - We do a Barter Circle at every Monstro Camp (on Saturday) where folks trade art, supplies, Ranger gear, extra badges, [...]

Potluck Supper

We've always done a Potluck Supper at each of our Monstro Camps. The idea is simple; get our Rangers to mix, meet each other, sample each other's cooking, and ultimately to connect.
