We have been hard at work planning a great camping event for the scouts and their families. The date is May 17-19 at Lopez Lake. The site has already been secured and is sure to be a great time for everyone.
The Pack will be providing the BBQ dinner on Saturday night, we are asking that families bring a side dish and dessert to share. If your last name starts with A-L, please bring a side dish. If your last name starts with M-Z, please bring a dessert to share.
The cost per family is $30. This includes your site, the BBQ dinner, scout entry fee to the Mustang Water Slides and boat for the rain gutter regatta. We are asking families to contact cub master Dave Sowell to arrange for payment and your reservation. We would like families to R.S.V.P. no later than this Friday May 3 and, ask that the $30 be paid no later than this coming Monday May 6th unless others arrangements have been made to ensure an accurate count for the event. In addition, this will provide the scouts ample time to construct their boats for the regatta.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Dave Sowell or Mary Andrade. Preliminary schedule of events is listed below along with a generic list of items to bring.
So we are on a camping roll this year and thought that we would squeeze one more camp out in this fall. We are camping locally here at Pioneer Park off of Foster Rd. Even if you have other activities that weekend, we are so close, come on by and enjoy some of the fun . Camping is tent only. Please see the list below for potluck items that we are asking each scout family to bring for dinner on Saturday. We have some extra cooking activities this weekend as well. On Saturday the boys will be preparing their own lunch, adults can join in too. They will be creating tin foil lunch packets with ground beef and other ingredients. In addition to the traditional Saturday Dinner, we have added a Pack breakfast on Sunday and will be serving pancakes and biscuits and gravy.
We have 6 RV sites available. If you are interested in using one of the RV sites, the cost will be $30 for the weekend. Please reply to this email by tomorrow, October 1st by 8pm. If we receive more than 6 we will put all names in a hat and pull 6 names.
September 21st – 23rd
Fall Camp Out #1: We have a very rare and special camping trip planned for the end of September. Pack 93 is going to be able to camp at Mussel Fort where there is a very cool ghost town. Mussel Fort has several buildings to explore, an old Saloon, Jail, General Store and others. This is all thanks to the generosity of the private owners and pack 93 parents for making this happen. This is a rare opportunity since Mussel Fort is not open to the public. It is going to be a great and memorable event. Mussel Fort is located out in Tepusquet about 30 minutes from Orcutt. There will be other events planned for the campout with an itinerary to follow. This is one event you don’t want to miss. Even if you can’t make it for the entire time, you will want to come experience this piece of Santa Maria history.
Our May campout is scheduled for Friday Evening, May 18th, through Sunday morning, May 20th, at Lake Lopez. We are in group site Campobello and it can accomodate 24 vehicles. First 15 are free, additional 9 vehicles are extra. The pack will reimburse those who need to pay for bringing in extra vehicles. There are picnic tables, fire pit and BBQ, NO Hookups for RVs, but RVs are welcome. The cost of the camping trip will be $5/person. This will help cover the cost of food and help us reimburse the extra vehicles.
We will be going to the Mustang water slides on Saturday the 19th. The exact time is still being worked on, but the scouts that attend will be paid for. More information for the Mustang Water slides will be in a follow up email. Families will be responsible for any siblings and adults.
Possible Additional Costs
● Boats are $10/day
● Pets are $3.50/day (MUST be on a leash if in the group site)
The pack will be supplying Tri Tip Sandwiches on Saturday night for dinner and we ask for each family bring something to share for a pot luck style meal. Pack will be providing Smores on Saturday night as well.
In addition to the water slides there will be fishing and other activities during the trip.
Your adventure starts in the evening when you set up camp on a lawn next to the lion exhibit or in our heated, indoor classroom. Then our instructors lead your group through a series of exciting, hands-on educational activities including up-close animal encounters and behind-the-scenes explorations. An evening snack is also provided.
In the morning, your group will enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast, another up-close animal encounter with one of our zookeepers, a train ride, and creating a special breakfast treat for one of our Zoo animals. At the conclusion of our program, you are welcome to explore the Zoo with your group on your own to see all of your favorite animals in the light of day!
