Super Virtual Fall Campout 10/24 - 10/25: Activities and prizes!

Hi Pack 350!

I misspoke in last week's announcement in my recommendation to go camp in a state park as most of them are booked up already due to Covid: reduced supply and increased demand. Fear not! We have great activities and suggestions for you regardless of where your are camping!

Tips for the backyard campers

  • Check out Scouting Fun Day 10/24 from 10-2pm at Veterans Park in Arlington (see flyer below)

  • Go for a family hike at Fort Worth Nature Center, hike to the waterfall at Airfield Falls or consider a family walk or bike ride on the Trinity Trails

  • For Saturday dinner - either pick up something easy or grill for a backyard picnic meal

  • Don't forget the s'mores! - roast the marshmallows over the grill or a fire pit or you can quickly broil in the oven (use cooking spray on pan or nonstick surface)

  • Sunday breakfast - go easy with pastries and fruit or consider cooking eggs or pancakes on the grill for more adventure (like Jonathan in photo above)

  • Challenge yourselves to stay out of the house as much as possible during your campout (we even hopped on our bikes Sunday morning to go grab a coffee/hot chocolate without going into the house!)
