We currently need volunteers to cover the Friday Night Snacks, Saturday night dinner, Sunday morning breakfast meals.  We will also need parents to help out assisting with the meals to help set up and clean up.

The weather will be nice, but chilly at night, so remember warm clothing to wear at night along with a fleece hat and warm socks.  We will provide more details on this camping event as we get closer, but we hope you can make it.

Cub Scout Spook-A-Ree – Bert Adams BSA Camp, 3 Weekends in October

Each year, the Bert Adams BSA Campgrounds holds a family camping event entitled Spook-A-Ree.  The details can be found here: 

This is an extra camping experience in which all the family can take part of.  There are options for renting one of the covered Adventure camp tents or you can set up your own tent.  You can make your own meals or pay in advance for them in the cafeteria. 
The events run the weekends of: 
Oct 10-12
Oct 17-19
Oct 24-26
We normally do not register as a pack, but if you register as a family, please be aware that you must bring 2 copies of your medical forms for all members attending.  Remember to bring some extra cash as the trading post is normally opened that Saturday. 
It is a very fun event, and the counselors and staff do a great job making sure everyone has a great time. 
If you do plan on attending, please contact Robert Payne at rjlpayne@gmail.com.  If there are other Pack 471 parents going, he will let you know.  Please let him know the weekend you are attending after you register.  Thank you.
