We will be attending the 2013 Cub Scout Adventure Camp as a Pack from July 10th to Saturday July 13th.
The Cub Scout Adventure Camp is a 4 day, 3 night stay at the great Bert Adams BSA Campgrounds near Covington (where we normally stay for the Fall Family Camping event). We get to stay in the covered fixed tents that have a ceiling fan, lights, electricity (for fans in the tents!) and all adults and scouts can bring their bicycles with them to ride from event to event.
The costs this year are:
$145 per scout (an additional $10 for the Webelos II Outback Adventure)
$65 per adult
$65 per siblings (Siblings of any age are welcome to attend, but only if their adults are there to supervise them, and are not counted towards the 1 to 4 required adult to scout ratio).
Payments can be made via check to PACK 471, or via Paypal via our Paypal website here:

IF YOUR SCOUT HAS ANY FOOD ALLERGIES, PLEASE LET CAMP COORDINATOR ROBERT PAYNE (firstname.lastname@example.org) KNOW SO WE CAN LET THE CAMP KNOW!
The advantages of attending Adventure Camp with the Pack are:
– We will register all of our scouts together, including setting up the schedule.
– You can send your Wolf, Bear, or Webelos scout to camp on their own! (We will be maintaining strict 2 deep leadership rule at all times, and we will only maintain a ratio of 1 adult to every 4 scouts attending).
If you choose to attend Adventure camp on your own as a family at a different date, those dates are:
July 7 – 10
July 14 – 17
July 17 – 21
July 21 – 24
July 24 – 27
The link to register on your own (ONLY IF YOU ARE NOT GOING WITH THE PACK!) is here:
Remember, you do not need to register through this website if you are planning on attending July 10 – July 13th.

The remaining information can be found in the 2013 Adventure Guide we suggested you download before reading the rest of this guide. We will look to meet before the July date so we can go over in greater detail the activities that are planned, what the scouts will be earning toward their rank advancements, and what we’ve learned from past experience as to what to bring to camp.
