186 Andersen Scout Camp Rd, Houlton, WI 54082

The Essentials

What: This FUN campout is how Pack 60 traditionally kicks off its scouting year. New scouts will spend some time learning the basics of Cub Scouting, and earning their first badge for their grade... the Lion's Honor, or the Bobcat.  Scouts will then work in small groups on other rank advancement activities, such as going on a hike, and preparing for our evening campfire program.  We will enjoy dinner prepared for us by our Webelos (5th Grade) Scouts.  Then, we will all gather around the campfire to perform skits, tell stories, and sing songs. Finally, we will retire back to our campsites for s'mores before turning out the lights.  In the morning, breakfast will be served, and we will have time to visit the Archery and BB Gun ranges before heading home.

Most of our families pack a tent and stay overnight. However, some have elected to go home Saturday night and return Sunday morning. If you stay overnight, it is preferred that you stay in your own tent. However, if you don't have the appropriate gear, please let us know, as we do have limited space inside the cabin that we have reserved. Ultimately, you do what you are comfortable with, as we want to make this an enjoyable 1st experience for all!

When: September 30 - October 1, 2023 (Saturday overnight)

You can attend any or all parts of the campout. Many new Scouts just come for the day on Saturday to check things out. There is no expectation at all that anyone attending (Scout or adult) has any experience camping. Don’t hesitate to contact a leader with any questions you have.

Please wear "Class A" Scout Uniforms for Saturday and Class B Pack 60 T-shirts for Sunday  (new scouts, no worries if you have not yet purchased a scout shirt, don't let that deter you from attending!!!)

The walk to our campsite is perhaps ¼ mile.  There are some carts available for your gear.  If you have a collapsible wagon it would be useful.
