Welcome to our Webelos Last-Hoorah Cub Scouts Camp-In!  Take this opportunity to enjoy our last Den camping as Cub Scouts and to also ramp-up into what to expect in Boy Scouts.  
Cabin / Location Details
Camp Mattatuck
Location:    On Route 262 / 221 Mt. Tobe Road in Plymouth CT, 06786

Campsite Map 
Nearest hospital - Bristol Hospital
We have a small 24 bunk cabin with one wood stove, one outhouse, one fire ring outside and a water spiggot about .5 mile away.  We have a total of 22 male/female campers.
Each person is responsible for packing/bringing what they’ll need for the overnight and leave-no-trace is in effect (e.g. trash your trash).  Just like a Boy Scout campout.  See list below…
Buddy system is in effect and so direct the boys to stay in pairs and for this outing, double up so that always at a minimum of 4 scouts go out together.
To "Check-in" just arrive at the cabin and you are checked in.  This is a Scout adventure :). I have never been here and so if you have any questions, check links and  feel free to call Ranger Alan.
Ranger Alan: 203-592-4184, 860-283-9577
Jan 21 (Sat)Scouts are responsible for their breakfast, lunch and dinner
Check-in at any time

Self-organized activities (feel free to suggest)

Slide show during Dinner
Self-organized activities (feel free to suggest)

Jan 22 (Sun)Clean-up, restock wood and get a good picture
Check-out prior to 11a
Check weather forecast a week prior and a day prior to determine what you feel is needed for your scout
Refer to this list to give you ideas of what to bring.  
Personal Camping Equipment Checklist
 NOTE: Not all items are needed. Bring water.  All pocket knifes need to be accompanied by a signed Whittling card.  No need for tent gear nor "Other/Extras" items on list except for leaving Trip Plan with family.   Ask your scout to use their best judgement in packing their pack.   
Sleeping bag - the cabin has a wood stove which we'll try to keep going but check weather to confirm if your sleeping bag will be warm enough
The wood stove should have enough room on it to heat up water if you bring a pot/kettle.  This is good for making dehydrated food packets/oatmeal.
Looking forward to having a safe, semi-warm and fun time!
