The campout starts with a brown bag meal – Bring your own dinner or eat prior to arrival at the
camp. Meals for Saturday and Sunday will be cooked in the Tanglewood Pavilion that we have
rented. Cubs will have the opportunity to raise the flag, play sports, receive skill instructions,
earn recognition for skills they have learned, and enjoy the outdoors with the Pack.
The Pack campout is the highlight of the year’s activities. It permits the Cub Scouts to enjoy a
scouting experience. Each Den or group will be responsible for participating in assigned
activities. Parents and Dens will be working to make the activities fun and challenging. Boy
Scouts will be present to provide guidance and demonstrate scouting skills.
