Fall Campout 2016

Who's ready to camp???

Bring the family as we join Troop 97 from Friday, October 21, 2016 to Sunday, October 23, 2016 for our annual Fall campout.  The troop is busy preparing activities for all our cubs, and this will definitely be an event you won't want to miss!

We will be at Woodfield West Scout Preserve this year.  It's approximately a 75 minute drive from St. Mark Catholic Church.  The closest address (for GPS) is 956 Rush Mountain Road, Trinity, NC 27370.

Directions: Take Interstate 85 North (toward Greensboro) to Exit 96 for US-64 East toward Lexington/Asheboro.  In 12.2 miles turn right onto Rush Mountain Road Exd.  The camp is in 0.7 miles on the left.

Please let us know if you will attend on our registration page.  Cost is $18 for adults and siblings (scouts and leaders are included).
Never camped?  Don't worry!  We'll have an informational session prior to the campout, and feel free to ask a leader any questions you may have.  We'll see you there!

Pack 97 Intro to Backpacking
The intro to backpacking program will run year around in coordination with the hiking program. The backpacking program will serve to prepare older Cub Scouts for high adventure programs traditionally found in Boy Scouts. It will allow experienced hikers to become familiar with backpacking and offers educational components focused on backpacking safety, equipment, trail and food preparation and leave no trace principles.
  • The program is restricted to Bear and Webelos scouts who have earned their 20 miler hiking award.
  • The backpacking program follows the same schedule as Pack 97's Pack 97's 2014-2015 Hiking Schedule. Check the pack website in early spring for announcements on the backpack campout.
  • The program flyer has details on the program including a list of tiers and awards.
