This Summer’s Pack 811 Family Camp will take place July 31st – August 2nd, 2015 and we are headed for the beach!
The warm days of summer have arrived early this year, but you can count on a relaxing and refreshing weekend at nearby Cabrillo Beach with your Pack 811 Family!
What is Family Camp? 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, this is an opportunity for our entire pack family to better get to know each other and have some fun! Activities include all kinds of water sports, including kayaking, rowboats, swimming pool, sea life and aquatic exploration, and of course our wildly popular campfire program!
Dates: Begins on Friday, July 31, 2015, (check‐in after 4pm). Camp ends on Sunday, August 2, 2015, 12:00 noon check‐out.
Location: Cabrillo Beach Youth Center in nearby San Pedro, Ca. This property features a camping area reserved exclusively for Pack 811, showers, flush toilets, and freshly prepared meals served in the onsite dining hall! The camp center will provide all water sport and safety equipment, as well as certified instructors.
Meals: All meals will be provided by the camp, except for the Friday evening meal. Each family is asked to bring their own picnic dinner for Friday evening or eat on the way to the camp. Campers are also welcome to bring their own between meal snacks if desired.
Cost: $50 per Cub Scout, $55 per immediate family members age 5 and up, $25 per immediate family member under age 5 — if you register and pay by May 23rd. (After May 23rd, fees increase to $75 per person, age 5 and up, $35 per person under age 5, and reservations will only be accepted if space is available.)
Reminder: Scouts who earned a camp credit for last year’s popcorn sales may apply it to this campout, which will make their trip free of charge!
What to bring: The basics include tent, sleeping bags, folding chairs, Class A scout uniform, Class B Scout uniform, swimsuit & towel, flip-flops, water socks, other casual clothes as needed, and toiletries. A more complete checklist will be provided at a later date.
Who is eligible to attend: All scouts of Pack 811 and their immediate family 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 are welcomed, but not extended family members and other friends.
