Fall Camp Out – November 5th

Bear’s Den

Our Fall Camp Out will be at Bear’s Den this year. We will be doing some hiking, games, dinner, s’mores, skits and jokes of course. We might even hear from the Vender Viper.

Below are the main 4 items you need to know for the camp out.

  1. Sign Up – Open Thru 10/30
    • Family and siblings are welcome to attend, pack camp outs are always family events
    • Register using the Fall 2022 Camp Out Form:
  2. Pay with venmo to @PackNineNineEight-Treasurer $25 per person attending, including parents, siblings etc.
    • please put a note in the payment with your last name, number of people this covers and, “fall camp out” so our treasurer can match it up with your registration and mark you paid. The campground charges us $8 per person and $3 per car to camp – the rest covers snacks, dinner, s’mores, breakfast, cooking supplies, extra wood etc.
      • QR code to pay from the app with venmo for our pack so you are sure you are paying the right person.
    • Here is what our venmo logo looks like so you can be sure you are paying us.
  3. Fill out medical forms – yay forms! (not really) but you must have them to camp, no exceptions. You can completed the form beforehand or bring them with you to the campground. They will be stored in a folder and locked in a car once everyone has arrived to protect your private healthcare information. This is only needed in the event of a medical emergency and required by the BSA to camp. Please fill out both A/B for each participant in the camp out.
  4. Dinner – TBD as we will discuss in our planning meeting later this month.
