This is just a reminder that our family campout will be May 17th, 18th and 19th – that is Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The general plan is to kick-off the weekend with a campfire ceremony on Friday night (7:00 PM at the Awesome fire ring at Camp Parsons. I am thinking skits, stories etc. This will be the only time we will have access to the fire ring for the weekend. Saturday night we will have a campfire but it will be less formal around or cabins.
For those of you who are able to swing it on Friday we will be having a cool ceremony at the campfire bowl. Jon, Mark and I will be receiving our wood badge beads. Wood badge is a 2 week long training for adult scout leaders to learn how to work with youth and run packs and troops. It has been a year in the works and we all 3 have completed the requirements which started at Camp Parsons. We will have various folks from the district level attending this ceremony and it would be really cool to show them what a great pack we have.
Saturday will be filled with activities including BB-guns and Archery. Sunday will be a simple morning prayer service and then head home.
Feel free to come when you can as I know Baseball, Soccer and various other activities take up our precious time. If you could please let your Den leader know your plans so we can get a rough headcount for food that would be great!
I will update with more specifics as the date draws closer.
Yours in Scouting,
