Happy October! Keep those Popcorn Sales going!
This weekend, October 10, is our annual Fall Camping Trip to Sudden Pond in Harold Parker State Forest in North Andover. Even if you cannot spend the night, please show up and have fun with the Pack. There will be fishing, canoeing, hiking and other Den sponsored activities (see your Den Leader).

The weather looks good, but pack for cool weather.

If you're using GPS or an App like WAZE, use: SUDDEN POND FIRE ROAD, NORTH READING, MA to located the site.

Old School Directions: Take Haverhill Street towards North Reading. At the lights in North Reading Center, continue straight on Haverhill St for 1 1/5 miles. At flashing Yellow light turn Right onto Marblehead Street. Travel another 1 1/2 miles and turn Left onto Salem St. The entrance to the camping area will be on your right-hand side, approximately 1000 feet up the street, after a green colored house. If you go past the horse stables on the right, you've gone too far. Look for the Pack Banner to be outside the gate. Follow the road in, for roughly 1/4 mile and we'll be on the right.

The Pack will provide Water, Paper Towels Dishes and Eating utensils
Tent – Pack has a few available to borrow.
Sleeping Bag

Mattress pad - air or foam
Bring extra clothing to match the weather
Multiple layers are better than a single massive jacket, because layered clothing is adaptable to a wide range of temperatures.

Flashlight, preferably headlamp
Chairs for Campfire
Rain gear – jacket and pants
Personal First-Aid Kit
