June Pack Camp-out - 2017

posted May 12, 2017, 9:10 PM by Matt Wagner
We would like to invite you to a camping adventure with Pack 30. Our annual pack camp-out is a time for all of us to welcome the Summer vacation, enjoy some time outdoors, and have fun with the members of our Pack. It doesn't matter if you a veteran camper or have never set up a tent before, bring the whole family and have some fun. We have a few experienced Eagle Scouts in the pack that are always willing to help out. If you don't have camping equipment, we can usually find some extra you can borrow.

We typically arrive on Saturday, set up and enjoy some activities. This year, our Webelos I Den is planning the events. It sounds like we'll have games, hiking, a rocket launch, scout skills, songs, skits and s'mores!

We'll be at the Bong Recreation Cent, in the Group Campground. This area is on the southern end of the camp, and close to the old air field and the marsh land. You will need a parking pass if you don't have a State Park sticker. Those can be purchased at the front office.

This year the Pack will be covering all participants registration fees and the firewood we'll be using for the evening's fire. We'll send out a sign-up for shared meals. Your family is responsible for lunch on Saturday (for yourselves), and any snacks/drinks you want to bring (no alcohol).

If you don't want to camp, please come out on Saturday for the activities, and stay for dinner and the campfire program. Even by doing that, you can count it toward your required camping Adventure, which each rank has.

A few of us will be staying two nights. You are always welcome to do that as well. We will have the site after 3:00pm on Friday.

The details are below.

Who:  All pack 30 families.  Siblings are also welcome to attend.

When:  Saturday June 10th and Sunday June 11th

We will gather at 9am on Saturday and be on our way home by 10am on Sunday

Where:  Richard Bong Recreation Center

Cost:  State Park pass is required if you spend the night.

Meals:  Bring your own lunch for Saturday.  Saturday dinner will be a team effort with each family bringing one or two ingredients. Sunday Breakfast is as a group as well.

What to bring:  tent, sleeping bag, good shoes/hiking boots for walking, toiletries, dress for the weather, water bottle, bug spray, sunscreen, extra water, rain gear.  If you or your son has a cub scout T-shirt (i.e. River Rats, Swamp Fox, or Seekers), we encourage you wear them for the camp out.

Activities:  hiking, campfire, skits, songs, Rocket Launch, games, Scout skills, etc…

Please leave all electronic games at home. 

The county has a policy that we cannot bring in firewood into the park.  We will be purchasing the wood we need from the county.

We need a minimum of 5 families.
