Intro to Pack 36 Camping
The annual Cub Scouts camping trip is a great intro to camping for families who haven't camped before. [Most] meals are provided, and you'll have lots of support from other families. Here's what to expect:
We camp for two nights, arriving Saturday afternoon and departing Monday morning of Memorial Day weekend. Boulder Creek Scout Reservation is a campground owned by the BSA. Cubland, where we typically camp, is one of about six groups of campsites, with space for ~70 people, a covered pavilion, a fire pit, and a spigot with potable water. Cubland is about a hundred yards from the parking lot, and lots of folks bring wagons to share to help tote gear from the cars. There are bathrooms with running water just up the hill, and a port-a-potty next to the campsite. There are also showers, but expect much of the pack to revel in being dirty.
Expect a mixture of structured activities and free time to play/socialize/relax. The whole family is welcome (including younger siblings!), but note that all children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
All participants must have received all Covid vaccinations for which they are eligible. We will not require masks outdoors.
Saturday night: Hamburgers, veggie burgers, chips, fruit and veggie trays
Sunday morning: Scramble (potatoes, peppers, cheese, sausage - veggie and meat) + coffee/tea/hot chocolate
Sunday lunch: Bring a brown bag lunch to eat while hiking
Sunday night: Fajitas, beans
Monday morning: Oatmeal w/ fruit, nuts, raisins + coffee/tea/hot chocolate
We will need volunteers to help with meal prep and clean-up (both directly and supervising scout volunteers).
