Welcome to your Pack 1980's website.  Please check here often for updates on pack activities and events planed for our pack and individual dens.

SAVE THE DATE: Pack 1980 Family Campout is June 6th

Posted on May 27 2015 - 8:13am

Our Pack 1980 Family Campout and Rank Promotion will be held Saturday, June 6th - Sunday, June 7th at YMCA Camp Carr (Hunterdon County - just west of Rt. 31).

$15/scout family includes fried chicken & hot dog dinner and overnight camping

Our Family Campout will be a little different this year in our new location.  The campsites are shaded and we will have 2-3 tents per site.  We have to turn in a list of families camping at each site, so early registration will give you the best chance of being in a campsite with friends.  We will have yard games on Saturday afternoon, followed by our hot-dog, fried chicken, pot-luck dinner, and ending with an evening of skits, rank promotion, and award recognition.  Sunday morning we will cook eggs-in-a-bag and have a continental breakfast.  After a Scouts’ Own Service, we will have scouting activities that include a monkey bridge, fire-building, bouldering, a craft, and fishing.  Scouts will help cook lunch with their dens and get started on adventures in the new Cub Scout curriculum after lunch!  Most ranks will require overnight camping as part of the new Cub Scout curriculum that starts June 1st. Have fun camping with your family at our Family Campout and get a jump start on adventures for your new rank! 

Due to the need for purchasing food & supplies, each scout family needs to RSVP by May 29th!
