Greetings Campers! Family camp is quickly approaching, and now is 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. The boys will enjoy shooting BB-guns, archery, Zip Line, and swimming in an enormous pool with a huge waterslide! Get ready to have a really fun time!
Our camping area is located within the OEC (Outdoor Education Center) north of Irvine Regional Park. Enter through the park Main Gate. When you reach the guard gate, let them know you are campers heading for the OEC. From there, please follow the signs to the camping area. The name of our camping area is “Kennedy Meadows”. Parking is directly adjacent to camp, which will make loading/unloading a breeze. 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).
Please set up your tent on the lawn. Please do not leave a lot of space between tents, as we want to make sure there is room for everyone within our assigned area. Note – please email JIM if you do not yet have a tent — we have some extra tents that can be borrowed for the weekend.

Cubmaster Koos will lead us in a ruckus campfire Saturday evening. As is our yearly tradition, 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 Cubmaster on or before Saturday morning.
Please contact us if any questions. See you camp!
