Family Camping Archives - Cub Pack 110

On Saturday October 14th, we will camp together at scenic French Creek State Park (https://www.dcnr.pa.gov/StateParks/FindAPark/FrenchCreekStatePark/Pages/default.aspx)
This is a great opportunity to explore nature and have some fun outdoors. Hike the great wooded trails, play cooperative games with your fellow scouts, and go fishing at the one of the lakes.

The scouts have a history of good luck fishing on this trip, so be sure to bring your fishing pole! Children do not require fishing licenses; adults without licenses may only assist with casting.

Please contact Cubmaster Beam or RSVP below by 10/11/23 if you plan on attending.

This is an event that is sponsored by the Chester County Council and will include units from all over Chester County

With limited event attendance, we ask that you please only bring the minimum amount of adults needed for your group.

Council will provide lunch and dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday morning if you stay over. This is still a bring your own tent/gear event.

Council is planning to have the shooting sports ranges opened and lots of other stations/activities. New this year we are hoping to have a black light pinewood derby (for fun, not competition) so bring your own wooden car! You can buy the precut bodies at the craft store, or buy a kit from the council store and cut it yourself before you come to camp! During the day, one station will be for decorating them and in the evening we will run the cars! Don’t fear if you’ve never made a pinewood derby car, this is your chance to get a try before you make the real one for your pack and district races later in the year!

When registering, be sure to specify “Trapper” as your desired campsite.

Our cub scouts are currently building rockets that we expect will be launched several hundred feet into the air.  All of the rockets have streamers to ensure their safe return.  Please join us and your children can help us retrieve the rockets once they return to earth.  Bring your assembled rocket kit and the pack will provide the rocket motor and all launch equipment.

Not a Cub Scout yet?

This is a great opportunity to come see what it’s all about. Bring your own rocket to launch or just come out to watch the show.  Let Lauren Buckalew (Committee Chair) or Clif Beam (Cubmaster) know you are coming. ANY INTERESTED BOYS OR GIRLS AGES K-4 ARE INVITED!

Want to invite a friend?

This is a great opportunity for any family interested in learning more about Cub Scouts to come out and see what Pack 110 is all about. Please feel free to bring them along and send them our Rocket Launch Flyer for more information. Any scout that brings a friend will get a special prize!

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.

See this YouTube video for some ideas.

For breakfast on Sunday, something quick and easy is best (fruit, muffins, or dry cereal / granola).

Pack 110 is very excited for our first camping overnight of the scouting year at French Creek State Park! Once an industrial complex for the fledgling United States of America, today French Creek State Park is an oasis for people and wildlife. Straddling the Schuylkill Highlands, the 7,730-acre park is the largest block of contiguous forest between Washington D.C. and New York City. French Creek has more than 30 miles of trails for hiking and biking and 2 lakes for fishing and boating. It is beautiful!

We are limiting the number of spots for this trip to 15 families (~30 people total). Please only sign up registered scouts of Pack 110 and one parent/guardian per family unit. Register early so we have an accurate count of who will be there. Hope you can join us!
