Just a reminder that our last Parent & Pal Family Camping Weekend is coming up fast - August 15 & 16, at Camp Acahela! We hope to see “YOU” and your son(s) at our last council Cub Scout camping experience of the summer!

Parent & Pal Family Camping Weekend is an action packed, 24-hour overnight (Saturday morning to Sunday morning) camping experience for a Cub Scout and his Parent/Partner. It is the perfect introductory camping program for "new" or inexperienced campers. All you have to do is show up. All meals and program are provided for you. Camp tents are available for you to use – or you can bring your own – whatever you are most comfortable with.

Reminder that this last Parent & Pal weekend for this year is open to not only Parents & Pals, but also the Cub Scout's entire family!
