Fall Family Camp Oct 15-16

Post date: Apr 27, 2016 3:49:16 AM

Mt. Diablo Silverado Council is having its fall Cub Family Camp in mid-October. These weekends are fun for Cub Scouts and their families. Activities include a nature hike, games, first aid training, Scout skills, crafts, BB gun shooting and archery.

Council-organized family camps are overnight events involving more than one pack, with the local council. Round robin activity stations provide structured program while leaving enough free time to enjoy the outdoors. There will be a campfire each evening.

Note this is an event for all Cub Scouts in the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council - this is not a Pack 805 Only event.

Date(s) - Saturday, October 15th, 2016 - Sunday, October 16th, 2016 All Day

Location - Camp Lindblad

Who Can Attend?

The whole family is invited to attend Cub Scout Family Camp. Anyone in the family (immediate or extended) may attend any of the Cub Scout Family Camps hosted in the redwoods of coastal California at Camp Lindblad, as long as there is one registered Cub Scout in the family. Siblings age 5 and under are only $15.00 per person, and must be accompanied by an adult.

How much does it Cost?

Every effort is made to keep costs low while providing a safe, fun event for you and your family. The registration fees below cover food, craft supplies, sporting good supplies, staff salary for positions requiring National Camp School certification, insurance, and incidentals to keep a camp open (like electricity, permits, equipment repair, etc.). Some of the overhead costs of keeping Camp Lindblad operating are offset by Friends of Scouting and other donations. The base cost per person to attend camp is:

Cub Scout $50.00 before Oct 6th 2016 $75.00 starting Oct 7th 2016

Adult $50.00 before Oct 6th 2016 $75.00 starting Oct 7th 2016
