CUB SCOUT CAMP OUT FAQ:


Who do I pay for the Camp Out? When should I let you know we are coming to the Camp Out? 
Checks are payable to Pack 20. 
The last day to signup will be announced so we can buy the food in advance. If you didn't sign up at the Pack meeting, you can submit electronically or give your forms to your Den Leader or drop them off to John Pease (johnp@peasewarehouse.com) at: 6712 Eleck Place. There will be a Registration Forms box on the porch. 

When is all the fun? Can I just come for Saturday or Sunday events? 
Pack 20 Cub Scouts and their families are invited to participate in any and all of the weekend’s events. If you don’t want to camp out, just come for the day’s activities. We want to see all the Scouts there having fun!

Camp kicks off with a Flag Raising Ceremony at 9:00 AM. After the ceremony, we schedule a variety of different activities until lunch time. After lunch are more activities, hikes, and Den time. Saturday evening includes a hot dinner followed by the big Pack Campfire! Sunday includes breakfast, an optional activity, clean-up, and breaking camp to head home.


My Cub Scout has a soccer game on Saturday. Can we leave and come back? 
Yes, we completely understand that Cub Scouts may have other commitments. Please check in with a Den Leader before you leave, and when you return, so they know which of their Scouts are on-site. If you are off-site during a meal, please plan on eating before returning. 

Can siblings and other family members come to the Pack 20 Camp Out? 
YES! Siblings are even welcome to participate in the activities as long as they are old enough to follow the safety rules. And, we have a lot of fun activities that can always use adult and older sibling volunteers.

What does my Cub Scout need to pack? 
First and foremost, check the weather forecast before you pack and plan accordingly.  Also, pack light.  The camp is set up Boy Scout style, which is not backpacking; however, you’re not camping right next to the cars either.  Campsites are ¼ - ½ mile walk on a gravel road into the camp. You can bring your own wagon, or borrow a camp cart for your gear. (Please return it to share with others!). Meals are provided, so no need to pack camp kitchen items.


Other items to consider: Flashlight, filled water bottle, sun protection (sunscreen, cap), bug repellent, basic first aid kit, and snacks. For Lions and Tigers, some parents find lollipops or hard candy to be helpful on a hot afternoon.


Water bottles can be refilled at the Dining Hall kitchen sinks and green spigots near campsites. There is a limited water supply at the Ranges so please fill your water bottles before range time.


If you don't have a sleeping bag or tent, please let the Cubmaster or Den Leader know. Some Pack members have extra equipment they're willing to share.


What if we are a bit short on cash to pay for this event? 
Our Pack is a village, and our Cub Scouts' efforts in fundraising allows us to give a (discrete) helping hand to our families who need a little boost. All of our Cub Scouts that want to participate should have the opportunity to experience the Camp Out. Period. Please contact the John Pease, Brent Gravlee, or your Den Leader if you need assistance or know another family may need assistance.

Does we need to bring any other money at the Pack's Camp Out? 
No, all meals and supplies are purchased by the Pack. Feel free to bring any unique food items you may need. 

Which meals are provided? 
Everyone will get lunch and dinner on Saturday and those Camp Out out get breakfast on Sunday.  
Bring cups/mugs for coffee, fruit punch and/or hot chocolate!
Cub Scouts are mindful of the environment so disposable cups are not provided at the Camp Out. 

 

What about Cub Scout or family food allergies? 
We do our best to accommodate Vegetarian needs and common food allergies that are communicated on the Registration Form "Notes" section. The Cubmaster or an Outdoor Activity team member will contact you directly about your child’s specific needs.

 

Where do we eat? What about bathrooms? 
We will be eating Camp Friedlander’s Dining Hall. Bathrooms are available at the Dining Hall and near campsites. Availability of showers will depend on when camp closes showers for the season.

Are Cub Scouts allowed to bring their knives? 
No. For safety reasons scouts should leave knives at home. The only exception are Cub Scouts who have their Whittling Chip card with them. They must have their Whittling Chip card to have their knife on-site. Adults are allowed to bring a pocket knife, if needed.
