In the past there has been a discrepancy on the listing of the Camp James Ray address. If you put the old address into a GPS system it will take you to the old service entrance to the camp, not the new gateway and entrance that was created a few years ago. This has led to some confusion and a bad first impression of our camp.
A new address number has been added for Camp James Ray to rectify the issue. It will take a while for the various map services to be updated. Until then, the best method to get exact driving directions is using GPS coordinates 33.819598, -96.782577.
The new address is:
Camp James Ray
2026 Mill Creek Rd
Pottsboro, TX 75076
Golden Arrow District leadership is looking to establish a new Medical Post at Plano Presby (Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano just east of DNT on Parker). We are looking to fill two roles: an Advisor and a Committee Chair. The hospital has already agreed to be the Chartered Organization. Plano Presby is willing to handle all of the program, but they just want a couple of people to handle the normal operation and coordination of the unit.
