Family Camp 2010 is Coming!

Family Camp is an opportunity for all Cub Scouts and their families to enjoy an outdoor camping experience together in a non‐challenging, low‐stress environment. For many young scouts & their families, this may be the first time they have ever slept outdoors or set up a tent. Family Camp is an easy and safe way to learn about outdoor adventure. Most of all, we want to have fun!
Activities include boating, kayaks, swimming, horseshoes, volleyball, crafts, marine museum, hands‐on aquarium exhibits, and more (including homegrown entertainment). There will be a series of scheduled events and times, along with free time so that families can adjust their participation according to their own needs.

Dates: Starts on Friday, June 18, 2010, 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm check‐in . Ends on Sunday, June 20, 2010, 12:00 noon check‐out

Location: Cabrillo Beach Campground, San Pedro, CA. This is a BSA operated facility that is used by many youth groups from throughout Southern California. This is a relatively small campground close to an urban environment, but it offers some unique features not found at other scout camps. It is well suited for the many younger scouts that we currently have in Pack 811. Camp facilities include mild beach, swimming pool, athletic courts, dining hall & food service, indoor restrooms, outdoor showers,
crafts rooms, scout shop, and outdoor amphitheater.

Food: All meals will be provided by the camp, except for Friday evening meal. Campers are welcome to bring their own between‐meal snacks if desired.

Cost: $55 per camper (scouts and family members) age 6 and older, $30 per camper age 5 and under. There may be some small added costs for some of the crafts, and parents should also anticipate that there will be some assorted parent volunteer task requests to assist the leaders in keeping a large group of kids organized for two days & nights.

What to bring: The basics include tent, sleeping bags, Class A scout uniform, Class B Scout uniform, swimsuit & towel, other casual clothes as needed, toiletries. A more complete checklist will be provided at a later date.

Who is eligible to attend: All scout members of Pack 811 may attend. Each scout must have at least one parent or legal guardian with them in camp. Scouts must all sleep in tents with their parent or guardian – no sleepovers with their buddies. Immediate family members of the scouts may also attend, but not extended family members and other friends.

How to sign up: Download the reservation form here. Sign up and make payment on or before the April 18 Pack Meeting.  Checks should be made payable to “Pack 811”. Reservation requests can be forwarded to Mike Glasgow, Mark Josten or your Den Leader.
