Family Camp Spring 2023


Reply on WhatsApp or contact Megan King to RSVP.

Time & Location

We are going to Camp Tahuaya at the General Clark 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 2hr-3hr drive, depending on afternoon traffic. If you are arriving Friday evening, please bring your own dinner (or eat it on the way). Link to directions.

Sunset is at 8:27pm. 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 General Clark, the next door to restroom facilities, and situated mid-way between the various activity areas.

THERE IS NO BURN BAN. We will be able to cook and retire flags normally.

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 EXTRA branding available this campout. One of the Family Adventure Camp activites is a camp-run branding station. We will have access to their brands as well as Cameron’s brands.

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. There is a 25% chance of rain, but you should bring this – even if there is a 0% chance of rain in the forecast!


We have purchased Family Adventure Camp passes. The activity areas at Tahuaya will be staffed by camp staff. We will have access to archery, BB, crafts, branding, climbing, canoes, fishing, and STEM activities.

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 – Breakfast Sandwiches
  • Trail Snack – Bring your own snack to carry with you
  • Lunch – Meat Sammies
  • Dinner – Walking Tacos (by Webelos)

  • 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 a lot of water, 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.
