Memorial Weekend Family Camp May 25-27th

Calling all campers!

Memorial Weekend Family camp is finally here! This year we will be camping in Pinnacles National Monument and will be exploring the trails and caves on the East Pinnacles side. Please note: you cannot access this through King City, you have to go around the Hollister side.

We will be arriving Friday afternoon and staying until Sunday morning. 

Preliminary Details:

Date: Friday and Saturday May 25th and 26th, leaving Sunday morning. You are welcome to come for one or two nights. Flat rate per person, so come when you can.

Food: We provide all the food and cook as a team. Each family is assigned to help prepare one meal. You will be paired with someone who has done this before :)

Cost: $35-40 per person. Includes camping and food, regardless of when you arrive. So the longer you stay, the better deal you get. We will have a better idea of the numbers, once we see the head count.

Who can come: Your whole family is welcome. We can offer additional spots to friends if we have room. We have a limited number of spaces, so please sign up asap if you want a spot.

Camping equipment needed: Tent, air mattress, sleeping bags, chairs, plates and eating utensils and your personal items. Don't forget your swim suit, there is a small pool and it can get pretty warm.

We will bring all cooking equipment, we will need propane tanks, so if you have one let us know!

We will send out a more detailed itinerary nearer the time. Please sign up on the attendance sheet if you are planning to attend.

Thanks, Lucy.

Registration Reminder - USS Hornet Overnight

Hi all!
Great hike at the Slough on Saturday.  The birds were beautiful, the sea otters playful, and the docent led hike was a special treat.  Thanks Lucy for organizing!

Wow as quickly as it began, our scouting year is winding down - only 2 meetings and 2 outings remain.

Hornet overnight reservations are requested by Friday.  
Not only is it a great experience, it's also a 25% savings off their normal rates

We do need to get a final count to the Hornet as soon as possible.
  • Date - Sat May 12 - Check the registration details here.
  • Reserve your spot on the attendance spreadsheet.
  • Arrange payment with your den leader.
Moms - treat yourself by coming along or with a night off - either way it's a win-win!

Please reach out to your den leader or the pack with any questions - looking forward to seeing you there.
Cheers!
