Greetings Pack 24!

Its time to register for our traditional fall campout at the scout cabin in Riverside.  This year’s theme will be “PIRATES” because we are going on an adventure on adventure on the Tall Ship Windy on Lake Michigan.  However, you don’t have to dress up as an actual buccaneer to join in the fun.  As we have done in the past, siblings are welcome to join us for this campout.  It is mandatory for parents / akeylas to participate in these events with their scouts.

Here’s our summary of  awesome events:

Saturday, October 1

  • 1:00 Registration and set-up
  • 2:00 Scout (Pirate) Activities (leather craft, swashbuckler zip line, buccaneer treasure hunt, skit practice)
  • 6:00 Dinner
  • 7:00 Campfire, skits, songs & s’mores
  • 8:30 Movie or bedtime (your choice)
Sunday, October 2
  • 7:00 Rise & shine for breakfast
  • 9:30 Take buses to the Tall Ship Windy “Aaaarghtecture Cruise”
  • 10:30 Tall Ship Windy departs
  • 11:30 Board buses to return to Riverside
  • 2:00 Campout ends
There will be separate registration for both the campout and the Tall Ship Windy, so even though both will be a blast, families can register for one or the other, or of course, both.  The cost for the campout is $10 per person.  The cost for the Tall Ship Windy is $12.50 per scout ($15 per adult or sibling) which includes a bus ride to Navy Pier in Chicago.
We have to have the Tall Ship Windy Tickets ordered in advance, so the registration deadline is Wednesday, September 28.  If you don’t register by then, we can’t get you on the boat, sorry – no exceptions.  Note you can bring your registration and payment to the Pack 24 meeting on Tuesday, September 27th at RPC – this is recommended.
