Pack 722 Sudden Pond Camping

Hello Pack 722,

Just a few days away from our fall camping trip to Sudden Pond in Harold Parker State Forest!  Here are a few reminders and additional information.
  • Camping is this Friday and Saturday (October 8th and 9th) night. Families can stay both nights, 1 night, or just attend the day activities on Saturday.
  • Families can arrive as early as 3PM on Friday. Departure on Sunday is after breakfast.
  • We are camping by Den this year. Please see the attached map and check-in with a scout leader when you arrive to determine where to set up your tent.
  • Meals are either by family or by den. If your den does not have a plan for a meal, then that meal is your family's responsibility.
  • The Pack does not provide cooking utensils nor stoves.  That said, if there is something you need, please reach out as we may be able to find someone within the Pack that can share with you.  That goes for any camping equipment and not just cooking gear.
  • Please bring plates, bowls, cups and utensils for your family, plus re-usable water bottles.  There is no potable water at the campsite but the Pack will be bringing some water for folks to fill up from.  We do advise you to bring some water as well for the weekend.
  • There is parking along the fire road that runs along the campsite. You will not need to walk your camping gear in very far, though your tent spot will likely not be right next to your vehicle either.
  • We will have a Pack Meeting Saturday night at 6:30PM around the campfire.  All are welcomed and encouraged to attend, whether you are camping that night or not.
  • Fire rings are currently reserved for the Webelos and AOL scouts as they have camp cooking requirements that they will be working on during the camping trip.
  • Scouts that have earned their Whittling Chip cards may bring pocket knives. We will be setting up a whittling area for these scouts.
  • All scouts staying overnight require an adult to stay as well.  All siblings are welcome to attend.
  • Scouts may not share a tent with one another.
Please reach out with any questions or concerns.

Yours in Scouting,
Your Pack Leadership
