Encounter is all about choosing your schedule, emphasis and activities. We will still meet corporately for spiritually-challenging evening services and morning devotions, but the balance of the time is more flexible to allow outposts to work on merits, outdoor skills, build relationships with each other or just relax.

The Texas Independence FCF Chapter will host the annual Fall Trace and all of the typical competition, color, excitement and delicious food at Fall Trace will be a part of Encounter. Both FCF members and non-members are eligible to register for the Trace (optional) and be a part of the competition. If any FCF members are interested in advancing to Buckskin, please complete the buckskin application and send it to Chapter FCF Scribe, Greg Breed, at sbreed001@comcast.net by Wednesday, November 1st. Any Young Buck interested in competing for Chapter FCF Scout should download and complete the FCF Scout application and send it to Greg Breed at sbreed001@comcast.net no later than Saturday, October 21st.

Sarge Summers will be our special services speaker and on Saturday evening, we will take a camp-wide offering for Catapult 700, our annual district Missions project.

Grab your best recipes, cooking gear, needed equipment for outpost activities and maybe even a jacket and come expecting a great “Encounter”!
