Family camp is quickly approaching!  Once again the Jr Webelos are taking the lead and planning this great camping trip for the pack.  We are returning to First Landing State Park again (after looking at the Eastern Shore and Cheseapeake).
   The great thing about FLSP is that it is only 15 minutes down the road!  It's great living in an area where other people go to vacation! 

Den leaders are polling the pack for numbers so we can reserve sites.  This is one of the best events we put on, you'll have a great deal of fun so carve out the time.  

Cost:  Booking (and payment) will be for both nights, irrespective if the site will be occupied for only one night. Each site takes 2 tents (ie. 2 families). $28 total, per family, for both nights. Parking is limited to one car per family. 


Camp Sites:  Sites will be allocated to families centrally, by the Pack, and marked by Den name.  Each site will be occupied by 2 families.


Parking:  Only 2 cars are permitted per camp site (ie. one for each family).  The only authorized overflow parking is at the main parking area.  The playground is not an authorized overflow and parking here will be at your own risk.


Arrival and Entry:  The entry office at First Landing State Park (beach front side) will have a list of families and issue you a car pass. Additional visitors will need to purchase an entry ticket at $5. 


Uniforms  Scouts should wear Class B uniform for the daytime activity and Class A for the Saturday evening Camp Fire and the Sunday Field Service.  No open-toed footwear (eg. flip flops or sandals) be worn.  

Prospective Scouts   If you know of any prosepective Cub Scouts thinking of joining, please consider inviting them to visit the Pack on the Sat evening.  If you are going to do so, please let Gavin Lenthall ((757 754 1434 or and the Cubmaster, Rich Lebel  know beforehand.
