General Campout Information

Pack 234 holds two campouts each year, one in the fall and one in the spring.

Check your email or the pack calendar for specific event details.

Rules for pack campouts:

  1. Supervision: All Cub Scouts and siblings must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is required to remain with the Cub Scout for the entire time. If someone other than the parent or guardian will supervise a scout or sibling, the Cubmaster must be notified ahead of time who it is.
  2. Responsibilities: Participants are responsible for bringing camping gear. Dens are responsible for meals, including food, drinks, plates, utensils, trash bags, and cooking gear. Each den is responsible for clean-up, trash removal, and extinguishing campfires in designated areas. Leave no trace!
  3. Safety: Children should not run in the campsite (near the tents), near a fire, or at night. Tripping over roots or tent lines causes the most injuries in the pack. Lights out is at 10:00 pm.
  4. Alcohol, Tobacco, and Drug Policy of the Boy Scouts of America: Alcoholic beverages, tobacco, and controlled substances are not permitted. Smoking areas for adults must be located away from all participants.
