Pack 110 has been anxiously waiting for winter to break and to get back outdoors. We are very excited for our first camping trip of 2021 at KOA in West Chester. The KOA is a fun, close, and easy overnight trip which makes it a great trip for any first-time campers. We have tent sites right on the bank of the Brandywine Creek!
Arrival: 5/15 ~ after 3 pm
(If severe weather is threatening, a go/no-go email will be sent to the Pack on 5/15 by 10am)
Saturday: Set up camp, explore the site, go for a hike and play games, have dinner, and enjoy a campfire
Sunday: Breakfast and camp breakdown
Departure: 5/16 ~ between 9am – 10am
Cost Per Family: $10.00
Payment Methods: PayPal, cash, checks made payable to Pack 110
Camping challenges scouts to “Be Prepared”. Here’s a quick list of essentials:
- Sleeping bags and pillow
- Warm clothes and your mask (dress in layers!)
- Filled reusable water bottle
- sleeping pad or air mattress
- small personal coolers for your tent are also nice in the event you need a drink in the middle of the night
- fishing poles, a ball or a frisbee are also ideas
Don’t Have a Tent? – The pack can lend you a tent and, if needed, help you set it up. Only 1 pack tent is available – arrangements must be made in advance with Clif Beam
KOA also has a number of small cabins available for rent for an additional fee (arrangements can be made directly with KOA http://koa.com/campgrounds/philadelphia).
Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, the pack will not be providing food in order to limit sharing. Please bring dinner for you and your scout to enjoy on Saturday evening. WaWa hoagies or other similar food that travels well is perfect. We will set up a fire if families would like to cook individually wrapped foil packs over the campfire – this worked great at our French Creek camping trip in October! See this YouTube video for some ideas.
For breakfast on Sunday, something quick and easy is best (fruit, muffins, or dry cereal / granola).
