Our October Pack Meeting will be at the Arroyo Flats Campground in Garin Regional Park. Scouts can sign up to camp overnight there after the Pack meeting. The campground has a barbecue, drinking fountain, a fire ring, and chemical toilets (we are only staying one night).

The campsite has capacity for 75 campers.  Signup is open now but please sign up only if you can absolutely commit to attend. Please wait if you're uncertain of your availability so everyone has a fair chance to participate.

We only have a limited number of evening parking passes so we highly recommend carpooling. There are only 2 parking spots at the campground which is 1/4 mile from the main parking lot. We will need volunteers to help with logistics to shuttle equipment and young scouts to the campsite. There are also other volunteering opportunities for the pack meeting, click here to sign up.

There is a trail for a group hike and a small stocked fishing pond nearby called Jordan Pond. Bring your fishing poles!

Campers need to bring your own mess kits (plates, utensils, cups), and prepare your own foil dinners at home to cook in our fire pits for dinner the evening of the 15th.  The pack will provide a simple breakfast for the morning of the 16th.
