Campout on October 3
Come camping with us on October 3. The cost is build right into your dues, and you don't need to buy anything to get started! We will be camping at Hills and Hollows in Denton, TX starting 10am on Saturday, October 3. We have the site until 2pm the next day, so we won't be rushed leaving camp.
This is going to be a fairly short and relaxed campout, as we are just getting to know each other. There will be time to explore and learn about the natural environment around us, but mostly this will be a campout for hanging out with family and new friends. If you have a favorite yard game or a comfy camp chair, bring it!
Where is it?
Hills and Hollows is at 3945 Roselawn Dr, Denton, TX 76207, and is a 45 minute drive from Woodland West Church of Christ (3101 W Park Row Dr, Arlington, TX 76013). If you would like to drive with us, you are welcome to meet up with us and follow the trailer at 9am on Saturday morning. Otherwise, we will see you there!
What do I bring?
A full packing guide (with pictures!) is available at pack379.org, and we guarantee that you already have almost everything you need already in your home. We have tents to borrow, and some sleeping bags as well (though depending on the weather, soft blankets and sheets will do the trick just fine).
Do not bring alcohol, pets (Service Animals are ok), firearms (except for officers required to carry), slingshots, bows, or explosives (such as fireworks) to the activity. Scouts younger than Bears should not handle or carry knives. Bears and up can handle and carry knives after they have earned the Whittling Chip award. If you are uncertain, contact us.
What will we eat?
We have a $25/scout food budget per campout. This means, we will provide a reasonable amount of simple food. If there is something special that you want to bring, or if you want to pitch in with a few families to get something extra to treat the kids - you are more than welcome to do so!
- Saturday Breakfast - on your own (eat before you arrive, or on the way)
- Saturday Lunch - Walking tacos (taco meat and toppings mixed into a Dorito bag) and fruit
- Saturday Dinner* - Hot Dogs, chips, and s'mores
- Sunday Breakfast - Pancakes, eggs, bacon
- Sunday Lunch - on your own (eat on the way home, or after the activity)
* The King family will most likely make cobbler as well, as an extra treat - if you have a favorite flavor, let us know!
