Fall Family Camp Out

Pack 1863 Annual

Fall Family Camp Out

Saturday October 6


Sunday October 7

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.

Fall Camp Out saw the Hunter’s Supermoon #supermoon #scouting

We couldn’t see many stars this year because of a big bright moon! Here is one of the pics we got during our Fall Family Camp Out with the telescope this weekend of the Hunter’s Supermoon! Thanks to everyone who came out and had a blast this weekend, we had over 100 people participate at this year’s camp out!img_4885


Camping update

This weekend looks like a great weekend for camping! Don’t forget to check the What To Pack section of our website. 
The weather looks clear but chilly on Saturday night. Don’t forget sweatshirts and warm clothes! We will get a early start Sunday morning on the campfire and hot chocolate (& coffee!) 
We have some fun activities planned for the campout and clear skies should give us a good opportunity to use telescopes… So bring them, if you got them!
