CAMP HOYT  -  Cub Scout Expedition!

Discover Camp Hoyt!  It's not an expedition but only 15 minutes but completely in the wilderness.  Bring out the Explorer in your Scout – have an adventure and lots of fun. Take a break from shuttling between soccer, lacrosse, baseball, recitals—find some time to explore Camp Hoyt and find out what Scouting is all about at Pack 75's Cub Scout Expedition.  Can't beat the pricing!  This is what you do for family fun after you've put your time in everywhere.

This is our end-of-the-year celebration and a real Pack year-end “highlight”-- an old-fashioned, good time with water balloons, tug o'war and other games, a country-style BBQ with all the fixins and a spirited campfire program culminating in a marshmallow roast and yummy s’mores.  All Campfire participants receive the custom "Pack 75 Spring Campout" designed just for this event!  All food, drinks, and supplies are provided by the Pack (your contribution is heavily supplemented by Pack funds)—so all you have to do is show up and have fun!  
Even if you can’t spend the night, come for the dinner and campfire program.  Den assignments are shown below-- it takes everyone doing their small part to pull this off!

Register:  Due May 27, 2011
Click on Register above, or go to “ONLINE FORMS” on the Special Events Page.  Online payment preferred.
             
Your “YES” on-line Registration is your agreement to pay.  The Pack’s general policy is that if we’re not out money-- you aren’t.  In light rain—the show goes on—we’ve had some terrific picnics sporting our rain ponchos!  The water balloons are still fun in the rain, and the Brown Pavilion provides shelter for dining.  If the event is cancelled because of hazardous weather, the Pack will refund revenues net of incurred expenses.  Let  Jeff Sears    know of any change of plans so we can try to adjust our supplies and food order early.
