Fall Campout

Hello, Pack 345 Scouts!

We invite you and your family to join us for Pack 345’s Fall campout. Our Fall camping trip is at Burt Adams Scout Camp on November 6th , 7th, and 8th.

Burt Adams is a wonderful setting for biking, fishing, field games and scouting fun. You will camp, eat and play with your den and then we will come together Saturday night for a Pack Campfire.

Flushing toilets and private showers are featured throughout the camp. Most of the sites are just a short walk from your car, and many experienced leaders will be available to help make this weekend enjoyable for all.

You will need to provide your family with a tent, sleeping bags, and eating utensils. Your Den will choose if you will share meals and how to divide any additional Den gear if needed.  Each campsite has a fire ring and picnic tables. The sites have limited power.

What does camping cost?

Pack 345 covers the cost of camping for your entire family.

Are you new to camping?

We will have a second (optional) New Camper Orientation Zoom meeting on 11/2 at 7pm.  This is not a required meeting on 11/2, but just and opportunity to help ease some anxiety for the first-time campers. We will discuss what to expect, what to bring, and tips for a happy family camping experience. I will also go over some of the important safety points in the BSA’s Guide to Safe Scouting. Camping is a key component in the scouting experience we want to make it an enjoyable experience.

What is there to do?

Dens will work on rank adventures, with opportunities go fishing or take hikes.

Here are the full details for the weekend

Address:

218 Scout Road, Covington, Georgia 30016

Arrival & Check-In:
Families may begin arriving after 4:30 pm on Friday, 11/6. We have assigned campsites. Your campsite assignment and a Burt Adams Map will be provided early next week. Pack 345 signs will be placed along the roads to direct our families to these sites. Families may proceed directly to the campsite when they arrive.

Parking:
Please do not leave vehicles parked at the campsite.  You may park in roadside parking areas but please do not drive into the camping area.

Saturday Arrivals:

You are welcome to come up for just the day or arrive Saturday and Camp for one night.

Medical forms:
Medical forms need to be brought to camp and held by each Den Leader (or Parent) for each person at camp with you, this includes all adults and siblings. A copy of the health form is available at

Youth Protection Standards and the Buddy System:
Some parents and leaders may not be aware of the Youth Protection Standards regarding sleeping arrangements. It is very important that we follow these policies at all times. They are there for the safety of our youth.  When making sleeping arrangements, families may share a tent. No youth may be in the tent of an adult or youth that they are not related to.

In Cub Scouts, we always operate with the Buddy System. All Scouts should be able to choose a buddy and then stay with a buddy anytime they leave camp. We also require two-deep leadership at all times.

Cool Weather Camping:
The temperatures during the day should be good in the 70s, but the nights could drop as low as the 40s. Please come prepared with additional dry clothes and bedding in case the weather is cooler than you planned.  Wearing closed-toed shoes will help not only with the cool weather but keep your feet safe from the environment, too.

Thank you again, and I am looking forward to one fun weekend!
