Pack 328 and Family Camping

When youth and their family join Cub Scouting, they join an organization that values the fun and excitement of experiencing the outdoors. Each Cub Scout Pack is encouraged to provide it’s youth members with enriching, positive outdoor activities. In addition to Cub Scout Day Camp and Webelos Camp as part of the pack’s annual plan, Pack Family Camping or Pack overnighters can be an exciting addition to your pack’s program.

Pack overnighters are pack-organized overnight camping activities involving more than one family from your pack, with the program focused on age-appropriate Cub Scout activities and conducted at a Council Approved Pack Camping Location. If nonmembers (siblings) participate, the program must be structured to accommodate them.

This type of activity may well be the first time a Cub Scout and their family experience the fun and excitement of camping in the outdoors. Careful program planning and adherence to the BSA’s health and safety policies found in the Guide to Safe Scouting and Youth Protection guidelines will assure a positive experience for your pack, the Cub Scout and his family.

Supervision: A parent or guardian must accompany and be responsible for each Cub Scout and other family members for the entire event.
