Spring Campout with Pack 417

Below is a sample of our Spring Campout Activities at Camp Friedlander.  I'll try get the email from the year before when we camped at Fort Ancient. 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Those attending the spring campout this year, please find within and attached a summary of key information you will need to know for a successful campout. There are a lot of details below, but I want to ensure everyone is fully informed:

Payment Information:
If you haven't paid for this campout yet, we will collect money before camp.  Kyle should be there to check scout accounts for funds if you choose to use that.  If you are going to just attend Saturday and don't plan on eating dinner, then no payment is necessary.  If you are staying for dinner, please plan on paying.


Weather Information:
Currently Accuweather is saying it's going to be a cloudy and cool night on Friday night with a low of 37 deg. 
Saturday will be cloudy in the morning but sunny as the day goes on and 60 deg.
Sunday morning will be around 57 deg and sunny.

If the weather turns bad or too cold, there will be some leaders/parents/scouts that stay at camp.  Please feel free to leave if you don't like the weather and return the following morning for the day's activities.  I've tried to give accurate temperatures for the days so please dress and pack appropriately for the temperatures.

Map & Directions:

Check In:

  • Location - Reed Campsite (see map)

  • Time - Starts at 5:00

  • All scouts and parents attending the campout will need to fill out A and B Medical forms and turn them in at camp the day you arrive.  I suggest saving a copy of the forms so you can use them again for any summer camp you and your scout attend.

What to Bring:

  • See attached checklist of what to bring, as well as what not to bring

  • A piece of advice, less is more, as you will see by the map, we are not parking right by the campsite, meaning you will need to carry in, or wheel in if you have a wagon/cart to the campsite all of your gear, so pack smart
