Family Camp Spring 2024

RSVP

Reply on WhatsApp or contact Molly Braden to RSVP. Cost is $15 per person for food (reduced to $10 if you’re coming Saturday and won’t be eating breakfast).

Time & Location

The dates of the campout are 6pm April 12 – noon April 14

We are going to Worth Ranch at Shuman Campsite in the Upper Campsite Area. The pack should plan to arrive at (or after) 6pm on Friday (or whenever you like on Saturday). (Keep an eye on WhatsApp for any updated information.)

The address for Worth Ranch is: 1518 Worth Ranch Rd, Palo Pinto, TX 76484

We are NOT car-pooling. Meet us there. It is a 1.5 – 2hr drive, depending on afternoon traffic. If you are arriving on Friday evening, please bring your own dinner (or eat it on the way).

Sunset comes early at 8pm. Late arrivals may be setting up in at least partial darkness. That’s ok! Bring a flashlight, and we’ll all work together.

Sites will have access to latrines and running water. Access to electricity is normally not available.

There is no camp-side parking. You can drop off your items at the street by the Office, and then you will need to park your vehicle. After your vehicle is parked you can bring your items into camp. You cannot leave your vehicle parked in the street while you setup camp.

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.

Equipment

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.

Branding

As usual, we will have brands available. The following items brand well:

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

Weather

Check the weather before you arrive: https://www.wunderground.com/weather/us/tx/palo-pinto

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).

A light rain jacket or poncho is usually sufficient, and should be brought even if there is no rain in the forecast.

Food

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 to the kitchen area 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.

Friday

  • Dinner – Bring your own or eat on the way

Saturday

Water

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.
