Campout Details (10/8/2021 to 10/10/2021)

Below are the details about the Campout. If you have any questions, please let me know.

The campout will be at Ross Rhodes Reservation (987 Chestnut Dr, Bismarck, AR 71929) on Lake Degray. This address will take you to the entrance to the Reservation. We will be camping near the lake about half a mile down the camp road called “Boy Scout Road”.

Below is a link to a google map that marks our camping location. It is called “The Point”.,-93.2009187,706m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x8633252eb5155a49:0xe87c43f253d147fa!8m2!3d34.2834201!4d-93.200716

Please plan to arrive anytime after 5:00 on Friday. Activities will start Saturday Morning at 9:00. The campout will conclude Sunday Morning after the Chapel Service.

You will be allowed to drive to your campsite to unload gear. After you have unloaded your gear, please move your vehicle to the designated parking area.

Bathrooms, showers, and water are available. However, they are pretty rustic so don’t expect Hilton quality. Bring your own soap and toilet paper.

Below is a list of the activities we have planned.

Team Competitions throughout the day on Saturday.
Gaga Ball.
Campfire Saturday Night.
Dutch Oven Desert Competition after the Campfire.
Breakfast Sunday Morning. $3/person, register by Tuesday (10/5) using the link above.

Everyone will be responsible for their own food. The Pack will have a propane four burner flat-top griddle and a two burner stove available to anyone that would like to use them. Please bring your own pots, pans and cooking utensils. If you use any Pack equipment, please clean it when you are finished.

This is going to be a great campout. I hope everyone is able to come. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Blue and Gold Banquet Sunday 3/14

This year’s Blue and Gold Banquet will be on Sunday 3/14 from 4:00-5:00 in the Salem United Methodist Church Sanctuary. No meal this year, due to the COVID precautions. Everyone needs to wear a mask.

The Blue and Gold Banquet is where each scout will receive their rank advancement. If you have makeups, please have them turned into your Den Leader no later than 3/9 so we will have enough time to get everything purchased.
