Family Camp is Almost Here!

by on August 5, 2011

Good Morning Campers! Family camp is just one week away, and this weekend would be a great time to get that camping gear in shape. Here is some critical info about next weekend:

We will be camping and having fun at the Outdoor Education Center near Irvine Regional Park. We will be shooting BB-guns and archery. In the afternoon we will take a dip in the pool. Do I hear slide? Yes, there is a slide that propels you down a hill to the pool. So get ready to have a fun time!

WHERE

Camp is above Irvine Regional Park. Enter through the Park Main gate. When arriving find a key pad past the ranger booth. The Gate code is: #0808. Please follow the signs to the camping area. Parking is nearby.  See MAP for directions to the camp site.  Arrive between: 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm Gate closes at 9:00 pm (No entry after this time)

CAMPING

Please set up your tent on the decomposed granite. Please do not leave a lot of space between tents. We have a lot of tents to set up.  There will be plenty of experienced campers ready to lend a hand for those who have not set up a tent before. Note – please email JIM if you do not yet have a tent — we have some extra tents that can be borrowed for the weekend.

WHAT TO BRING

Meals on Saturday and Sunday morning are provided by the camp. Please email PETER if you have any food allergies. All families should bring a picnic dinner for Friday evening.  Click HERE for a complete list of items to bring.

THE CAMPFIRE

FireMaster Christian will lead us in a ruckus campfire Saturday evening.  In addition to a skit performed by each den, representatives from EVERY family will be asked to impress our pack family in a skit, song, or other performance.  Families may collaborate with other families, or perform on their own.  Please start discussing ideas for your family performance this weekend!  Each family will submit their performance idea to the FireMaster on or before Friday evening.

Please contact us if any questions.  See you camp!

Peter Toller, Christian Lising, and Jim Remley
