June Pack Camp-out 2016

posted Apr 19, 2016, 9:23 AM 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, geocaching, scout skills, songs, skits and s'mores!

We'll be at the Kettle Moraine South State Park, in the Pine Woods Group Campground. This area offers some easy access to the Glacial Drumlin trail, and the Scuppernog Trail. This is very near the Ottowa Lake campground (which is where you will need to go for your parking pass if you don't have a State Park sticker).

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, feel free to come out on Saturday for the activities, and stay for 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 11th and Sunday June 12th

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

Where:  Kettle Moraine South - Pine Woods - Group area campsite #3

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. 

What to bring:  tent, sleeping bag, good shoes/hiking boots for walking, toiletries, dress for the weather, water bottle.  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, Geocaching, games, Scout skills, etc…

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.
