View this email in your browser

Parent-Scout Weekend is Here!

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone who registered for Parent-Scout Camping this weekend.

Lots of details in this email so please read all the way through.

  • Weather: We camp in all reasonable weather, and this weekend is looking good though rain would not be unusual. Bring your rain gear.
  • Campsite: We will be camping at the Dan Beard campground. Click here for Google Maps. As you enter Raven Knob, bear right to go past the dining hall and watch for signs for Dan Beard.
  • Adirondacks and Tents: This site has several Adirondacks – three-wall shelters with bunk beds. Most campers can stay here though if you are a tent camper, bring a tent too. There is also space to hang hammocks!
  • When: Campers can plan to be there Friday anytime after 5. We will be finished up Sunday late morning. You do not need to check in with Raven Knob as our Scout Master will check in our entire group.
  • Meals: All meals will be provided in camp. That includes Friday dinner, all three meals on Saturday and while we won’t cook a hot meal on Sunday, we will likely have some packaged foods available.
  • Mess Kits: Please bring a camping mess kit. As a Pack, we’ve thrown away far too many plastic cups and utensils before. In an effort to be more eco-friendly, we invite you to bring a mess kit with you.
