This is an interesting topic. We generally leave Friday about 7:00 PM and return Sunday about noon.
I've asked parents for their opinion as to a more preferred time, but didn't get much of a response.
I'm going to save your message and pass it along to the PLC and the parents to see what they think.

I would like to poll the list on the length of your weekend campouts.
During the Fall months our troop only camps on Saturday night, we leave
around 8 AM on Saturday and return on Sunday around 4 PM. During the
remainder of the year we leave on Friday around 5:30 PM and return on Sunday
at 1PM. We have a couple of troops in our area that have started returning
on Sunday around 4:00 PM on every campout. They said the scouts and parents
have really enjoyed the late return, because they have an entire afternoon
to work on requirements and have fun! It makes since, because all we do on
Sunday morning is break camp and have a small worship service before we come
Just wondering what other troops are doing. Please post to the list as this
might help others.
