Get ready for Family Camp!

To everyone who's signed up for Pack 151's Family Camp, we hope you're excited to go!  It's going to be a great weekend at historic Fred C. Andersen Scout Camp.

For those of you who are joining us for the weekend overnight camping option, you may arrive Friday evening as early as 6pm. It's OK to arrive a little later than 6 as Friday evening/night contains no formal programming. Plan to eat before you arrive or bring something that doesn't require cooking (like crackers, sausage, cheese, etc.)  This is often shared with the group.  It's what's called "cracker barrel". If you've chosen a cabin option, make sure you bring along your sleeping bag and pillow.  Tent campers should bring whatever they need.

Our program starts Saturday at 9:00am. All campers should be prepared to spend most of the day away from our base camp.  In their day packs, Scouts should carry their own Cub Scout Essentials and other items they'll need during the day. (Parents too.)  We'll leave base camp at 9:30am as a group and hike downhill to the lower level. From there, we'll do den activities, bb gun shooting, archery, lunch and the Rank Transition Ceremony.  If all goes as planned, we'll hike back up to the upper level base camp at 6:00pm.

Don't forget to bring along a completed copy of each person's Annual Health and Medical Record and a Shooting Sports Waiver.  Make sure you have rain gear with you in case the weather turns.  Adults should have all their planning done before arrival.
