When: Fri, Feb 7, 2014 @ 3:00 PM until Sat Night after Campfire
Where: Huntsville State Park
Who: All Scouts
Comments: Only three weeks left before the Winter Campout at Huntsville State Park so it’s time to start signing up. Average weather for the first week of February is highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s- perfect camping weather! The boys will have an opportunity to earn their Cooking or Outdoorsman achievements by cooking their own pancakes and hamburgers/hotdogs, and also go on a mystery scavenger hunt where they will need to use their map/navigation skills to locate clues to help solve a mystery message. A Campout Schedule and checklist are attached for your reference.
Scout Sunday at our sponsor United Methodist Church is Sunday morning Feb 9. Scouts are encouraged to attend this event and so official scout activities will end after the Pack Campfire on Saturday evening to allow travel back to town in time to attend Scout Sunday. If there are any families who will not be attending Scout Sunday who will be camping over Saturday night as a family, please indicate you will be staying 2 nights.
Also, we are looking for a volunteer of a Tiger Scout to be an Assistant Campout organizer so the Tiger Scouts have someone familiar with organizing Campouts after older scouts and their parents advance to Boy Scouts. This is your chance to get more involved, learn how to put the campout events together, and have some fun. First come first served! Please also look at the volunteer list and sign up for the other volunteer opportunities.
If you haven’t had a chance yet to sign up and would like to join us for a great time, please provide the following:
- Names for all those attending and Scout, Sibling, Parent, Den Leader indication
- Den you are associated with
- Number of nights attending
- Email address
- Home phone number
- Cell number
There is a $5 fee for each attendee and we also require a medical form filled out for each attendee. A medical form is attached with only parts A&B required. Please also provide a photocopy of the front and back of your current insurance card.
The medical form can also be found here: http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/ahmr.aspx
Completed medical forms and payment can be brought to the next Pack Meeting, mailed to me, or dropped off at my house (after 5 pm works best). Alternately, you can call me on my cell to coordinate another time.
