Cub Scout Pack 1776
24Mar/19

April 27-28, 2019 – Spring Camp Out: Coyote Hills

Come join us for Pack 1776 Spring Camping at Coyote Creek Regional Park.  Comprised of 1,266 acres of marshland and rolling grassland covered hills, this park is located along the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay, northwest of the cities of Fremont and Newark.

A pack hike and fun activities are scheduled! You do not need to sleep over.  Come join us for the day and campfire activities if you do not wish to spend the night.

Everyone should bring a foil wrapped dinner, a refillable water bottle, flashlight, folding chair, and sun protection. Wear sturdy shoes for hiking. Bring warm clothes as it may get cold after dark. For those staying overnight, you must also bring your own tent and sleeping bag. The pack will supply snacks such as s’mores and drinks on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday morning.

Group camping will be at the Dairy Glen Group Site.  Named after the dairy farmers of the 1800s, includes three shade structures, additional picnic tables, a drinking fountain, fire pit, hand washing station, and vault toilets.

The camp site can sleep up to 50 people, so reserve your spot!

Consider arriving early to visit the Park’s Visitor Center on your own.
