Camping – Muddy Run Campground
September 22, 2017 @ 11:00 am - September 24, 2017 @ 11:00 am EDT
Join Pack 802 on our first Fall 2017 camping trip to Muddy Run Campground located in Holtwood, PA. If you are new to camping, check out our camping 101 post for frequently asked questions about pack overnighters. Pack members will have the option of camping for either one or two nights between Friday and Sunday. Cost for scouts and youth under seven is $5.00 per night. Cost for adults and youth seven and up is $10.00/night. Campers can check-in anytime after 3:00pm on Friday; however, most families should plan to arrive between 5:30-7:00 if camping on Friday.
Muddy Run Campground is a family campground with a picnic area, bath house and playground on site. We will be staying in the primitive tent camping area one (see map below) which is slightly more remote than the main sites but is within walking distance to a comfort station and potable water source. The campground is located within Muddy Run Park and provides access to the resevoir and several hiking trails in the area. This will provide a great opportunity for hiking and exploring several geocaches on site during the day on Saturday.
We strongly encourage pack families to attend this event because it will be a great introduction to camping for those with less experience. Also, for those families that have conflicts on Friday evening or Saturday morning (e.g. soccer), there will be plenty to do if you choose to only camp on Saturday night.
We request that you indicate your desire to attend using the sign-up sheet below as soon as possible. If signing up for only one night, please reserve an open space for either Friday or Saturday. If camping both nights, you must sign-up for each night separately. Please annotate the total number in your party in the quantity field and the types of participants (scouts, adults/older youth, youth) in the type field. For example, if you have 2 scouts, 2 adults, and one youth please indicate total quantity 5 and list “2 scouts 2 adults 1 youth” in type field. Final confirmation of your desire to participate and your payment are due by 19 September at our Pack meeting. After 19 September, the pack cannot provide refunds for individuals that cancel.
