(May 12th) Pack Updates

Posted on May 12 2022 - 8:53pm
Please read below for important information on our Pack Graduation and the upcoming Twilight Camp available for our scouts. 
Pack Graduation/Overnight (6/4 - 6/5)
Thank you to those who have RSVP'd already. Those who haven't, PLEASE do so ASAP herefor the daytime event and here if you also plan to stay overnight, so that we can plan accordingly. 
We will be having our last leader/parent meetingof this scouting year, this Sunday, 5/15 from 5:00pm - 6:00pm. We will be planning food and activities for the graduation/overnight and could use extra parent support with the planning and execution. Please join us either in person (11059 Mammoth River Ct. Rancho Cordova) or virtually (https://meet.google.com/aix-whzi-uza). 
Cub Scout Twilight Camp (6/27 - 7/1)
This year, for those interested, we have decided to join our neighboring districts Twilight Camp because it is being held right here in Rancho Cordova, (versus up in Placerville where our district is holding theirs). I will be coordinating this for those interested in their kids attending. My oldest son has done it before a couple times and had a lot of fun. I have attached the camp guide for you to review. Here are some basic highlights of the information you need to know and that I need from you: 
  • This is a "twilight" camp which means it is in the evening. For the entire week, Monday - Friday evening, from 4:45pm to 8:30pm
  • The cost is $65 per scout (incoming Lion-Bear), $80 per Webelos (incoming Webelos) and $25 per Adult Volunteer. 
  • Incoming Webelos (current 3rd graders) will have the option to stay overnight on Friday night.
  • Any funds earned from camp card sales can be used toward the cost of this camp. 
  • Our pack needs to have one registered adult for every 4 kids who sign up. Therefore, if you plan on signing your child up, please plan on volunteering at least some of your time. 
  • These camps give the kids a chance to learn BB guns, archery, orienteering, among other fun skills and activities. 
They have extended the registration until June 1st, however I need to know prior so that I can get all the info and payment and submit it to them in time. Therefore, if you are interested, please RSVP hereby 5/22/22 and reach out to me if you have any questions. Once I know who is going for sure, I will email the group with information on how to pay, the required forms that need to be completed and any additional information. 

Camp Cards Due on 6/4/22
