image_preview (1)This is a Family Event all parents and siblings are welcome. This is a very fun activity which Pack 1863 hosts every Fall and Spring. The campsite is family oriented and has shower/ bathrooms on site (may be a bit of a walk). Our Family Camp outs are a great way to introduce your scout (and maybe you) to camping.
   We generally arrive at the campsite at 1 p.m. on Saturday and leave Sunday by 12 p.m. Saturday dinner, Sunday Breakfast and Lunch will be hosted by Pack 1863.

Our 2018 Fall Family Camp Out will be held at Camp Snyder in Haymarket, Va. This is a local scout camp and includes bathroom facilities and activity areas. We have reserved large sites to accommodate our pack and families. Siblings are welcome! Remember: Talk to a leader if you need help setting up.

For this event we will be located at campsites 8 & 9.
