See map pdf below for latest update to site plan of Camp Nedooae. Note: the Grocery Depot has been moved from subcamp 3 to the front gate.
Grocery "Depot" at CJ
The Grocery "Depot" at Camp Nedooae is now by the front gate. Patrols will need to plan accordingly: there will be a trek in the morning but, on the upside, it's along the way back to your campsite after a day of program. Don't forget your comfortable hiking shoes, a garden cart and a postive outlook.
