Houseboat Trip

The Troop has done this a few times in the past and can look into doing another trip this summer. This is a week long trip to Shasta Lake in Northern California. We drive to Shasta Lake the first day and get on the Houseboat. We find a place to moor the boat along the lake shore and live and sleep on the boat. During the day we will go tubing, swimming, wake boarding, and water skiing. Estimated cost is around $700 per person.

IF WE DECIDE THAT WE WANT TO DO THIS TRIP, WE NEED TO PLAN TO DO SO NOW AND RESERVE BOATS.
