Scouts and their families will be able to combine some of their favorite things — the outdoors and projectiles — into one fun-packed weekend in April. Rocket camp will take place April 8 – 10 at nearby Firestone Scout Reservation. Families will bring their own camping gear and food and camp with hundreds of other scouting families for this event, which includes shooting off rockets, archery, BBs, slingshots, and more. If you do not wish to bring food or to cook, an optional meal plan can be purchased.
Firestone is the same location where summer day camp is held – off of Tonner Canyon road in north Brea. Camp starts after 4:00 on Friday and concludes on Sunday morning.
This camp is extremely popular, and sells out early every year. Because of this, we must get our reservation in this month. Please check your calendars and sign up as soon as possible if you can make it. Families with little or no camping experience should not be intimidated, as there are plenty of pack families with extra gear and experience to help out.
The cost is $30 per person, which includes 1 rocket ($25 for campers who do not wish to launch a rocket). An optional 4-meal plan can be purchased for $20 per person. Children under 4 years old are free.
More information can be found in the camp’s camping guide. More specifics will be given to families that sign up. This should be a very easy but fun outing for the boys and their families!
