This is a fun family campout. Den leaders may coordinate activities for their dens, taking advantage of the beautiful natural surroundings of Riverbend Park. The park features river access, self-guided nature trails, a nature center and a frog pond. The only way to camp at Riverbend is through a Scouting program, so this is a unique opportunity to enjoy this park.As with our Fall campout, families will provide for their own meals in order to limit congregation of people during mealtimes. Camp stoves will be available, and hot water will be provided at both dinner and breakfast. 

What To Bring:

  • Food for dinner and breakfast;
  • Water (the pack will have a few big coolers); 
  • Mess kit (plate/bowl/cup/utensils) – including disposable items for each person (we don’t use paper/Styrofoam, but will set up a wash station for washing dishes after each meal);
  • Layered clothing (class B uniforms);
  • Tent, ground pad, sleeping bags, tarp to put under the tent (ground may be wet);
  • Camp chairs for sitting around the campfire;
  • Flashlights, toiletries, etc.;

Children are not permitted to have electronic devices (e.g., tablets).
