Scout meetings will soon be resuming. We will be having a registration night in the Scout den at Camross Hall, on Sept 25th from 7-8pm. Registration to Scouting Ireland is €45 per child. It is important we get a full attendance as places are limited, and any child not registered will not be guaranteed a place. We want to thank Maria Dunne for all her help and commitment last year, unfortunately Maria will not be with us this coming year, so I would ask people to think about volunteering some time to our local Scout group. Help is especially needed for hikes.

Camross Foroige

Camross Youth Loft Café for the Foroige will reopen on Friday night next the 26th of September at 8.30pm until 10.00pm. All young adults from 1st to 6th year are very welcome. We lookforward to seeing you all there.
