I’ve sent this message out earlier and wanted to emphasize a few points. We have been able to secure an entire campsite for the Pack for the Oct 23-25 Fall Camporee. There is space for a few additional families to join us. If you missed the original registration deadline and would like to come, please register now (by Monday, 10/5).
Lee Danhauer has visited (and camped) at Raven Knob several times this summer. He said, “I have been immensely impressed with all the precautions that Camp staff has taken. From social distancing to drinking fountains to sanitation and more, they have been impeccably cautious.”
Also, if your family has been adversely impacted by COVID and finances are tight, please contact Lee or me. The Pack can help and we do not want money to be a problem.
Because Old Hickory Council charges us for each attendee and we buy a lot of food (all meals will be cooked at our campsite) to support this trip, we need to charge $35 for each attendee (scout or parent). We will send you a PayPal invoice accordingly. If you prefer to pay by another method, please just let us know.
Dates and Times
We arrive at Raven Knob late on Friday afternoon, and Camporee ends on Sunday morning. If you would like to join for a portion of that time, that is an option too.
Need camping equipment?
We’ll send out equipment and packings lists closer to the date of the trip.
If you’re not yet equipped for camping, let Lee Danhauer know on the registration form and we’ll figure out what you need. We can cover almost anything you might need for this first trip, and that will give you a chance to test it out and determine your needs for the future.
Remember, we don’t ever want resources or equipment to stand in the way of one of our Scouts having a great experience with nature, their friends, and their parents. Let Daniel or Lee know if equipment or money is an issue.
