February 22nd - 24th, 2019

The second campout  of our 2018-2019 Pack Year will be at Moss Park!

We will be camping in the group area at the Orange County Park named "Moss Park", about 60 miles away (a bit over an hour drive).  Moss park is a beautiful park with large trees, Shermans Fox Squirrels, Sandhill Cranes and other wildlife.   They have a very nice playground, open fields for games, and several large lakes.   They have small hiking trails as well.
 
On Saturday at 9:30am, we will have a 1 mile informative nature hike, with a ranger.   Saturday afternoon we will mix it up with canoeing, hiking, group games, and nature hikes.   The canoes will be on-loan from the Troop and are free to us!

The playground is a nice one, and is for younger kids.






MEALS - The Pack will offer certain meals as shared.  We encourage everyone to participate if possible as it's economical, easy, and involves good fellowship.  Here is the menu.   If food items don't work for you, you may opt out of that meal and/or bring something to supplement.  The pack has all of the kitchen supplies needed.
