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”.
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.
Campfire Saturday Night.
Dutch Oven Desert Competition after the Campfire.
Breakfast Sunday Morning. $3/person, register by Tuesday (10/5) using the link above.
Chapel Sunday Morning after breakfast.
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.
What to Pack?
See the camping Equipment Checklist below.
This is going to be a great campout. I hope everyone is able to come. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Pack 82’s has a budget of $284 per scout for the 2021-2022 year. This year, we are fortunate to have enough excess funds to provide an $84 discount to every scout. The remaining amount will be raised by participating in the Popcorn Fundraiser or paying the Opt-Out fee. Below are the goals for this year.
Sales Goal is $625 per scout.
The Opt-Out is $200 per scout. NOTE: If you sell popcorn, but do not meet the sales goal, the opt-out will be reduced on a sliding scale based on how much popcorn was sold.
Tues 10/26 – Turn in all Opt-Out fees and/or Popcorn sales.
Sat 11/13 – Any popcorn that was ordered will be available for delivery.
Russ Rhodes is the Popcorn point of contact for Pack 82. Below is his contact info:
