What Storm? This weekend Niles scout troop 579 came for a campout at Crystal Springs Camp & Retreat Center. It stormed pretty bad as they arrived on Friday, but Scouts are resourceful. They sought out 15,000 square feet of shelter under our Tabernacle for a safe, dry first night. Are you looking to host an event, but worry about it being ruined by rain? We can help. ...
