Fall Campout for Pack 33 Den 6

The Pack Camp Out is coming up! This has a lot of information so please read it. Remember, you can also always come back to this as well.




TIGER REQUIREMENTS
that we hope will be fulfilled at camp out (and also on the Tiger Calendar here)::
* Bobcat Requirement and Rank
* Tiger in the Wild,2, 3C, 4, 5. 6 (any parents know about, 7t trees)
* Games Tiger Play 3

IMPORTANT!!! To make bobcat rank at the campfire, YOU MUST do the booklet in regards to preventing child abuse in the front with your son AND Cyber Chip. The Cyber Chip can be completed here. You can screenshot completion, print and bring in, or go on scout honour that you did it (though I will ask what they did and learned).  

Quick Important things:
* While this is camping, parents you are expected to watch your kids and we all help each other
* You don't have to arrive in Class A. 
* Class B's will be for sale for both kids and adults. $12 a shirt.
* NO stick fighting or war games
* Older boys are not allowed to carry their pocketknives outside their camp out
* If the stick fighting happens or a boy is carrying around a pocket knife, please ask them to stop and talk to their den leader. Tigers should NOT have any pocket knives with them at all!
* Buddy System! No boys are to go off into the woods or leave the campsite by themselves. They need to have a buddy and to check in with a leader or parent before and after.
* Latrines/bathrooms- To adhere to BSA Youth Protection policy, unless it is a family bathroom with ONLY your family, you must have your boys go into their bathroom by themselves and the same for the girls/women.  
* This is going to be the Tigers first campout together.  The boys are going to be bouncing off the trees. Active parent participation will go a long way towards taming these wild Cubs enough to keep the campout focused on the fun and free from any safety incidents.
* There will be a pack first aid kit and Victoria and Anthony will both have smaller first aid kits. As set out in Tigers in the Wild, a first aid kit is a hike essential so if you have your own, bring it. But we will be in a group so it will not be essential to have your own.

Pack Dinner:
* Pack supplies main dish-- bring a side dish to share

Den Breakfast
* While the Golden Spatula is fun, which is a breakfast competition, we are going to be teaching the boys to cook on the fire for breakfast. If you have camp stoves and gas that is great, please bring it.
* Breakfast: Breakfast Burritos (eggs, milk) with optional toppings (cheese, onions, green sweet peppers, bacon). Please plan to bring veggie versions of the bacon if you wish. We also plan to have coffee there as well! We will have another option as well such as bagels and cream cheese or the like. 
* PLEASE bring $10 for the breakfast, as we split this cost as a den. It may very well lower than that, but we tried to be prepared, right?
