In our locale, tan clothing is all the camouflage you need.

Border Watch Duty can be strenuous and demanding. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from participating in some activities please let your group leader know. All information is confidential. We will help plan an experience for you at the border that is safe and rewarding.
