2019 Spring Trace

Spring is here and so is the FCF Spring Trace! It’s happening May 17-19. This is a great time to get together with all the boys and men of your outpost and experience the wonder and thrill of camping. Our Spring Trace is themed in the colonial era and there are a lot of activities to see and take part in.

You don’t have to be a member of FCF to attend the Trace (you can even bring your modern camping equipment). As a matter of fact if you are looking to join FCF, you can do so here. If you are a member of FCF, there are also opportunities for advancement that you can take advantage of here.
