Family Camping Archives - Cub Pack 110

***NOTE***

This trip has been rescheduled to May 15-16 to pair it with our annual Pack 110 Rocket Launch. We will launch rockets at Pocopson park in the afternoon and then head to the KOA for our campout. Come for one or the other…..or both!! See you there!

———————————————————————————–

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!

 

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

 


 

Itinerary:

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:

Cost Per Family: $10.00

Payment Methods: PayPal, cash, checks made payable to Pack 110

Equipment:

Camping challenges scouts to “Be Prepared”. Here’s a quick list of essentials:

  • Tent
  • Sleeping bags and pillow
  • Flashlight
  • Warm clothes and your mask (dress in layers!)
  • Filled reusable water bottle
  • Recommended:
    • 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).

Food:

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).

Questions:

Please email Brian Denney with any questions. Also please review the Pack 110 COVID-19 Risk Reduction Plan on the pack’s website.

***NOTE***

We have combined our KOA camping trip with our Rocket Launch on May 15th. During the afternoon we will launch rockets at Pocopson Park and immediately afterwards head over to the KOA to camp along the bank of the Brandywine Creek. Plan to come for one or the other…or both!

 

Please see the KOA event page for signups for the camping trip.

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!
