Pack 3894 Fall 2011 Campout – Near Starved Rock

Friday October 7th through Sunday October 9th

Girls Scouts, originally planned to attend with Cub Scouts, however because of no Girl Scour Leaders being available for this weekend– the girl scouts camping with Pack 3894 has been cancelled.
1.) Location
Illini State Park
2660 E 2350th Rd, Marseilles, IL 61341

2.)  Directions ( approx 1 hr 45Min)
I-90 E/I-94 E, Take exit 53 to merge onto I-55 , Take exit 250B to merge onto I-80 W , Take exit 97 toward Marseilles, Turn left onto E 24th Rd, Continue onto Rutland St, Continue onto Main St , Continue onto E 2350th Rd

3.) Cost : This is to be determined by your Den Leader ( The Den’s will be cooking for themselves); this will include food, camping fee & Patch. Estimate $15-$20 per person. RSVP to your Den Leader , they will need to have a strong head count by Pack Meeting, this Friday September 30th.  See bottom of the email for Den Leader’s contact information.

4.)   Youth Protection Training
All parents and legal guardians attending MUST have completed the Youth Protection Program. Turn in/email  your certificates to your Den Leaders or me prior to departure (see contact information below).  No exceptions will be made and this matter will be strictly enforced. The reason for this policy is because of the nature of sleeping arrangements on overnighters and all parents need to be aware.  Not following this policy puts our entire Pack at risk, via the BSA Tour Permit that we have filled out.  The Youth protection online course is free and takes approximately 20 minutes to go through. The link to this can be found at here If you had previously camped with the Pack in the last year, we already have your CERT. on file.

We prefer you send the Pack “electronic” copy and paste of your Certificate; so when you prompted to print it; also SAVE the file or copy and paste it into Wordpard or Word as a file and email it to me. Or you can login to your online account and click View Certificate link and pull up that version and copy & paste it in same fashion as a file to save and email back to me.

5.)  Carpooling
-Please communicate with your respective Den Leaders about car pooling.

6.)  Pack Dues
All participants MUST have turned in their $50 Pack dues prior to departure. The dues are crucial for the financial stability of the Pack and the fact that this event was planned with the intent of no charge to each boy.

7.)  Attendees
This is a Scout/Parent event.  ONLY registered Cub Scouts and parents/legal guardians. Not following this policy puts our entire Pack at risk, via the BSA Tour Permit that we have filled out.

8.)  Equipment-this is a recommended list

2011-2012 Events Planned – Are you Ready??

The 2011-2012 Pack 3894 Events, along with District & Council Events have been sketched out. The Pack Committee is so excited this year to hit the ground running on some of the familiar Events, to build on and make better. We also have brainstormed to develop some new Events, Fund Raising Events, Service Projects, and Field Trips. In past years, the Dens took it upon themselves to ask other Dens to join them on outings. In 2011-2012,  the Pack Committee will coordinate the Events to allow for more things to do over the year.  Many of the Events will be self funded, which means no additions to Pack Fees, but nominal charge for Campouts, Hikes, etc.

The list here is growing, but to see the officially scheduled Events please visit our Calendar Schedule link.

We do encourage to please provide and Feedback, Event Ideas!! please post below….
