Swamp Romp & Pack Campout, May 14

Swamp Romp (May 14, 7:30/9-11 am, Fancyburg Park):

Our pack will be participating in the Upper Arlington Swamp Romp, which is a service project to clean the streams of Upper Arlington.  Cub scouts and siblings have a great time going through the streams and picking up litter.  The day kicks off with an optional pancake breakfast at 7:30 am.  At 9, we head out to our assignment to clean one of the streams; we finish up by 11 bringing back the litter that we've picked up.

If someone has a pickup truck that they can bring along, that helps with transporting litter back to the base.  Latex gloves and trash bags will be provided, but you might want to bring other (leather) gloves as well.  Dress for getting wet.

We need to know how many people are going to tell the district by April 29th.  Either sign up at the pack meeting, or email Eric (cubmaster #-at-# to let us know how many are coming.

Pack Campout (leave Sat May 14, noon, from Greensview; return from Camp Falling Rock around noon Sunday):

After Swamp Romping, we will be heading out to Camp Falling Rock (to be confirmed), which is one of the Council's scout camps, where we will camp out overnight.  Cost is $10 per family (cash or preferrably check payable to Pack 96), payable at the April Pack meeting or to Steve Rogers by April 29th.  The pack will provide Saturday dinner, dessert, and Sunday breakfast; plan to eat lunch Saturday before you come (or bring it in the car).

Likely activities include hiking, fishing, and games; we will also have a special pack meeting by the campfire.

Each family should plan to bring their own tent and sleeping gear (as well as clothes, etc).  Please note that this is a family campout: each scout should be accompanied by at least one parent; siblings are very welcome to come along.  Every person attending will need to have a valid medical form on file with Diane Kahle.
