State park information.

For the Webelos:

We will be located in the front of the park in the public camping area. Unfortunately we won’t know the exact location until we check in on Friday. We will keep an adult in the camp site to help direct you as you arrive. We will have three flag poles up so it should not be hard to find us.

You will need to bring the following items:

  1. Water bottle – nothing fancy – you can use a simple bottled water container
  2. Walking shoes – I recommend a pair of sneakers. These are best for climbing
  3. Sleeping bag
  4. Simple Rain coat or poncho (just in case)
  5. Tent – If someone in your patrol has a 2+ man tent and you want to sleep together that would be fine
  6. Jacket
  7. couple of t-shirts
  8. couple of pairs of blue jeans
  9. flash light
  10. 3 pairs of socks
  11. Scout Uniform
  12. Scout hat
  13. Stocking cap for your head
  14. Light breakfast for Saturday ( I recommend oatmeal or breakfast bars and some fruit like an apple)

Webelo Parents – We do have a camping area set up for just the adults. If you and your son need to sleep together then that can be arranged but I can’t have an adult sleep with anyone other than their son.

We have four main events planed.

  • Rock Climbing and repelling
  • Caving (spelunking to be more exact)
  • GPS game called Chase the Rabbet – VERY FUN
  • Pioneering game called Catapult Bomber – I will let that one be a surprise
