FFC 2012 Patch

Fall Family Camp is Fri-Sun, Oct 26-28 at Bert Adams Scout Reserve in Covington, GA. Please go to the FFC 2012 page to get more info and fill in the pre-registration form WHETHER OR NOT YOU WILL BE ATTENDING. We want to get a response from everyone so we can be sure everyone has been notified. Please do this ASAP, but at least by Oct 10th. We will also have a sign up sheet at the Rain Gutter Regatta Pack meeting this weekend (Reminder for Sat, Oct 6th: Sign-in boats between 8:00 – 9:00 AM, event starts at 9:00).

Please read through all the info and attached files on the FFC 2012 page for more details, but here are some key points:

  • COST: Cost is $10 per scout. Siblings in 1st-5th grade can attend and participate, also for $10 each. There’s no charge for adults or non-participating siblings. Payments can be submitted at the Oct 6th pack meeting or your Oct Den Meeting. As always, make checks payable to “Pack 815”, or pay with cash.

  • HEALTH FORM: A BSA Health Form (Parts A & B) must be submitted for every person (scouts, parents, siblings, etc.) who will be attending. The form is available on the website link above. Turn these in with your payment. Additional copies of the form will be available at Raingutter if needed.

  • PARENT MEETING: We are considering have a separate parent meeting during the week leading up to the camping trip to meet with everyone who’s going and to answer any questions about the trip (what to bring, tents, food, etc.). Please indicate on the pre-registration form if you are interested in attending such a meeting (probably on the afternoon of Sun, Oct 21). This would be especially useful if you’ve never been to Bert Adams (or camping for that matter).

  • ARRIVAL/DEPARTURE: It’s about a 70 minute drive in light traffic from Murdock to Bert Adams. You can arrive at Bert Adams as early as 3:00 PM on Friday, Oct 26th. Good news – that week is early release at school, so you should be able to get on the road ahead of Friday rush hour traffic. Depart from Bert Adams 9:30 – 11:00 AM on Sunday morning.

  • MEALS: You’re on your own for dinner Friday, lunch on Saturday, and breakfast on Sat and Sun. The Pack will eat dinner together on Saturday evening, so we will need volunteers for a Camp Cooking Committee to help plan and prepare this meal. There will likely be an additional charge per person to cover the cost of this meal (amount TBD). Also, on Friday night you will have the option to purchase meals (hamburger/hotdog, chips, & drink) for $5 each, payable at time meals are picked up. Please indicate on the pre-registration form how many Friday dinners you will purchase and if you want to volunteer with the Cooking Committee.

Let me know if you have any questions.
