Our Pack does 2 campouts every year.  One in the Spring and one in the fall.  Our 2015 Spring Family Campout is coming up quickly.  We will again be visiting the Kankakee River State Park in Bourbonnais, IL.  We had a great time here last fall!

The campout will start on Saturday, May 16 and go until Sunday, May 17.  We will meet at the camp site on Saturday anytime after 11.  If you have sporting events on Saturday, come out after the sports events are done.  We will stay one night and come back on Sunday afternoon.

We plan on cooking dinner on Saturday and Breakfast on Sunday together.  To be good stewards of the environment, we will use reusable dishes, so please bring a mess kit for everyone in your family attending.  We will have wash stations to clean up afterwards.

The cost is $15 per family.  You can pay this to Chad or any adult leader before or at the campout or leave it in Chad's mailbox at 818 S Cuyler.  Please put it in an envelope with your family's name on it.

Please sign up on the form below before Thursday, May 14.  The form includes how many people from your family will be attending, so we know how much food to buy. 

Feel free to reference this handy Gear List to help you pack for the trip.

The past few years has been chilly on our campouts, so make sure you check the weather and plan ahead.  A nice, warm sleeping bag is a must, and some sort of sleeping pad or air mattress is very helpful.  A couple warm blankets work well too.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
