A Camping We Will Go!

It's time again to get in gear for our Fall Family Camp out!  Our Pack tradition is to attend the Fall Festival at Sid Richardson Scout Ranch located on Lake Bridgeport.  It's a weekend campout that's packed full of fun!  No camping experience is necessary!  This is where you go learn the ropes!

The informational brochures can be found here and here (two pages, one needs to be filled out and turned in).  Please note, however, that you will turn the forms into THE PACK.  Please DO NOT mail them or turn them into the Council office.  We will register as a Pack.

Deadline for turning in forms is MONDAY, OCTOBER 6.  

Cost is $22 per youth, $10 per adult.  Payments can be made via check payable to LONGHORN COUNCIL.  

There is a place on the form where you indicate if you are camping Friday night, Saturday night or if you're just attending for the day's events.  Once we have an idea of attendees, we will decide as a Pack what we will do for meals Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon.  Friday night will be on your own.  Dinner on Saturday evening and a continental breakfast Sunday is included with your registration fee.  

This is a great opportunity, also, for our newer scouts to get their hands dirty on the range with archery and bb gun ranges.  They will have an area set up for pumpkin carving and there may be a trebuchet (big catapult) set up to do some punkin' chunkin' as well!  We will go over this more as it gets closer to the date.

We will be attending the weekend of October 10-12.  Our Webelos II will be camping out with Boy Scout Troop 1910 as part of their Arrow of Light requirement.  Camping out Friday night is optional but many families enjoy the extra night in the fall air.  Let's face it, camping is a BIG reason why boys WANT to be in Scouts!

All Pack 1910 camp outs are family friendly events so the whole family is welcome!  So mark your calendars NOW to attend!
