Sep 20-21, 2014, will be the fall campout at Greene Valley Forest Preserve, sites 6 and 7, in Naperville, IL.  Contact Rick Bauer for more info.

Our fall camp-out is at Greene Valley Forest Preserve September 20th to September 21st (Saturday to Sunday). We are on CampSites Nr. 6 and Nr. 7 (same as last year). A map of both the campground as well as the Forest Preserve is attached. Greene Valley is near 79th Street and Highway 53.

The campsite opens up at 3pm and we have to vacate the campsites by noon on Sunday. Let’s plan to arrive by 5pm on Saturday. The Camp-Out ends officially after breakfast the next day.

Fire wood is provided by the Preserve – I need one volunteer to pick it up and transport it to our site. Please, contact me.

Everybody is responsible for their own dinner – we plan on having a campfire. Don’t forget smores.

The pack pays for breakfast – but we need one volunteer to organize it! Please, contact me.

Over the last few Fall Camp-Outs the boys played in the surrounding woods. We didn’t organize any separate games or events. Again, we are open to suggestions – especially if you want to organize a game or other event.

Finally, we’ll have our Pack Hike in parallel. Everybody who signed up for the Pack Hike, please, let’s meet at 3:00pm at our camp sites. We’ll hike the so called ‘Main trail’, which is about 2.7 miles long. That should take us about 90 minutes – we should be back before 5pm. James Huang will lead the pack hike this year.

Please, be aware – it’ll be alrady cold at night. Prepare accordingly with warm clothing and a warm sleeping bag or additional blankets.

Sign-up is still open.
