                           PARENT/SON CAMPOUT
               Pack 855 will be holding our annual camping weekend as follows:

       DATES:          Friday, May 1, 2009, Starting at 6:00 pm
                       Saturday, May 2, 2009, All day
                       Sunday, May 3, 2009, Ending at 10:00 am

       LOCATION: Camp Downs Memorial Park in Pasadena (see map & directions on page 4)

       COST:           $20 per Scout, $20 per parent

A program of activities is attached. All Scouts and Parents will bunk in tents, which they are
required to bring. Dens will stay together for camp chores and activities. Each parent is required
to accompany his or her son on the campout. Cub families are encouraged to come to the
campfire on Saturday evening. Each Den will present a skit and song for everybody’s
enjoyment.

The campout starts with a brown bag meal – Bring your own dinner or eat prior to arrival at the
camp. Meals for Saturday and Sunday will be cooked in the Tanglewood Pavilion that we have
rented. Cubs will have the opportunity to raise the flag, play sports, receive skill instructions,
earn recognition for skills they have learned, and enjoy the outdoors with the Pack.

The Pack campout is the highlight of the year’s activities. It permits the Cub Scouts to enjoy a
scouting experience. Each Den or group will be responsible for participating in assigned
activities. Parents and Dens will be working to make the activities fun and challenging. Boy
Scouts will be present to provide guidance and demonstrate scouting skills.
