Weekend Overnighter Options: Choosing a Tent or Group Cabin

If you choose a Weekend Overnighter Option: In accordance with the Boy Scouts of Americia's requirements the Pack must follow the BSA's Guide to Safe Scouting, privacy and sleeping arrangementStandards and Youth Protection policies.  Male and female adults require separate sleeping facilities. Married couples may share the same quarters. Male and female youth participants must not share the same sleeping facility.

Weekend Overnighter options include:

  1. Tents: Married couples are allowed to sleep together with their children in a tent they bring to camp. No youth is allowed in the tent of an adult other than his/her parent or guardian.
  2. Group cabins: Separate male & female group cabins are a good option for campers who prefer not to sleep in tents and those who aren't allowed by BSA rules to sleep in a tent together.  These will be the "Peterson 1 & 2" cabins.

Everyone pitches in, but we need extra help.

Family Camp is a hands-on experience for all participants. Helping cook meals and keeping the campsite clean is a responsibility for all. In addition, we need extra volunteers, preferably with some experience to plan meals, coordinate gear, plan and help with age-appropriate activities, etc. You'll have plenty of help. Can we count on you? Contact the Outings Chair for a list of volunteer opportunities.

What to Bring?

The Pack will bring along camping equipment, but we'll also rely on everyone to supplement our gear. More information will be provided in the weeks ahead.  

Camperships Available

Pack 151 believes every boy should have the opportunity to experience the excitement of camping, and wants to provide the opportunity for registered boys to go to camp. These experiences help boys learn new skills and advance through the ranks of Scouting. The intent of "Camperships" is to ensure that any boy with financial difficulties is not denied the opportunity to attend camping programs. Contact Pack Committee Chair Mike Bailey or Cubmaster Charlie Niven for more info.
