Weather/Cancellation notification: If the event is cancelled due to weather or other reasons, notice will be posted on the front page of our pack website. www.pack1169.org Please check it before you head out. A slight chance of precipitation in the forecast will not run us off. It is possible that a forecast of severe or dangerous weather will cancel the event.
What to bring:
A tent, camp chair, sleeping bags/bedding, pillows, air mattresses and whatever else makes you comfortable to sleep outdoors. You will have to provide your own dinner due to BSA covid-19 regulations on buffet style food and communal cooking. We will be allowing scouts and their families to bring prepared at home tin foil dinners to cook over the campfire if anyone is interested in doing so, please make sure you write your name on your foil packets. Everyone must maintain social distancing while eating dinner. You can always bring some extra snacks and drinks for your family. Don't forget your camera, cell phone, toothbrush, toothpaste, medicine, soap, a towel, pajamas, a change of clothes and a hammer for your tent stakes.
Please note, all scouts should wear class A uniforms for the campfire program and bridging ceremony. Also remember to bring a flashlight/lantern and some bug spray. Check the weather report and be prepared for the temperature and precipitation forecast. It's always a good idea to leave an umbrella or two in the trunk of your car, just in case. By the way, the campground has a full bath house with showers.
