Family Camp Fall 2022


Reply on GroupMe or contact Megan King to RSVP.

Time & Location

We are going to Camp Constantin at the Possum Hollow campsite. The pack should plan to arrive at (or after) 6pm on Friday (or whenever you like on Saturday). (Don’t try to arrive early. If you get there before the Cubmaster… you get to wait.)

We are NOT car-pooling. Meet us there. It is a 1hr 45min drive, or 2 hours if you stop for food on the way. If you are arriving Friday evening, please bring your own dinner (or eat it on the way). Link to directions.

Sunset is at 7:10pm. If you arrive around then, you may be setting up in the dark. That’s ok! Bring a flashlight, and we’ll all work together.

Our campsite is Possum Hollow, the next door to a shower house and on the lakeside.

A BURN BAN IS IN EFFECT. No ground fires will be allowed.

Medical Forms

All attendees must have medical forms on file for the duration of this event (even if they are not staying overnight). Forms are only valid for one year, so unless you filled out a new one for the Fall campout, then you probably need to give us an updated copy.

See the Medical Forms page for PDFs and additional information.


We have a recommended packing list with it’s own page: Packing List. Everything you need, you already have at home. You can borrow a tent, and might also be able to borrow sleeping bags or a cot depending on availability. Talk to Cameron or Megan to make these arrangements.


We will have branding available this campout.

The following items brand well:

  • Camp mugs
  • Ball caps
  • Nalgene bottles
  • Wood disks
  • Smooth dowel rod hiking sticks


Check the weather before you arrive:

A partially-zipped Summer sleeping bag (rated for 40*F) or medium blanket will be adequate for most people, based on the current forecast (low of 60*F).

For light rain, a light rain jacket or poncho will be adequate for most people. You should bring this, even if there is a 0% chance of rain in the forecast.

Families can bring their own snacks, whatever you need for your family to be happy! Coolers are allowed. Families are strongly encouraged to keep food in a latching plastic container and move it into the trailer overnight.

Never bring food inside your tent! (Or else you may get ants and raccoons as roommates.)

Families are responsible for cleaning their own personal dishes. We will teach you how, but we expect families to do their own dishes. It would be great to include the scouts in this activity to teach them responsibility.

We will assign other kitchen duties when we arrive in camp.


  • Dinner – Bring your own or eat on the way
  • Cracker Barrel – S’mores


  • Breakfast – Eggs Bacon Pancakes
  • Trail Snack – Trail-mix Activity
  • Lunch – Sandwiches

  • Dessert – TBD


  • Breakfast – Grab and Go Pastries
  • Lunch – Camp is over, eat on your own


We will have running water.

If you are sensitive to the taste of water, consider bringing water (or a water filter) for your family and limit sugary drinks. You will need to drink water constantly, more than you would at home. Even though the weather is mild, scouts should be drinking water constantly.

The chart below is for young adults, but will serve as a guide.

We will have latrines available. These are not flushing toilets, so always close the lid when you finish to reduce the odor.

Depending on the style, there might be a male side and a female side, or a sign that can be flipped depending on who is currently using it. Always announce yourself. Youth and adults cannot be in the latrines at the same time, nor can males and females.

To give you an idea, they might resemble something like this:
