Pack Meeting/Registration

Just a reminder that this Thursday, October 18th at 6:30 pm will be our next Pack meeting held at the Church Hall.  Please arrive on time as we have a guest speaker this week.  Make sure to wear your Class A uniforms!

It is extremely IMPORTANT that we receive the contact form sheets by Thursday.  If you have lost yours, a blank form is attached.  We must have this information in order to accurately track your child's advancements in the new Scoutbook application.

At Thursday's meeting, we will be collecting registration fees - $95 for each scout and $85 for each additional scout per family.  As always we accept cash and checks made out to Pack 722.  In addition, we will be accepting credit card payments that include a convenience fee totaling $98.00/$88.00 respectively.  The up charge covers the credit card companies fees. 

See you on Thursday!

Your Pack Committee

Things of Note:

  • When parking near the campsite, be aware there areas where the ground drops off from the road a few inches.
  • Due to current lily pad growth, we will not be providing canoes this year.
  • There are still plenty of slots available for dinner's sign up - Click here to sign-up! The Pack will supply hot dogs, water, plates, napkins, hand sanitizer and utensils.



Each night we ask that only 1 campfire be lit - the main Pack campfire. 
This year we will be sectioning off an area for whittling.  


Only Scouts who have earned their Whittling Chip, and bring it with them, may bring a knife.  It can only be used inside the reserved area.

Schedule For Saturday:


  • Den Activities between 11-4 - Please check with your den leaders for specific times!
  • Dinner: 5:30 pm
  • Campfire Program: 7 pm
Here are the directions to the site:
Sudden Pond is in Harold Parker State Forest on the border of North Reading and North Andover, MA 


From Wakefield, proceed through the 129 rotary and follow Haverhill Street through Reading to North Reading Center. Go straight through the light for approximately 1.5 miles, and take a right at the blinking yellow light onto Marblehead Street. Follow Marblehead Street for about 1.5 miles, and turn left onto Salem Street -- you should see a small brown sign on the Right pointing Left to Harold Parker State Forest.  If you pass a sign that indicates the border of North Reading and Middleton, you've gone too far.
