Capstone Campout

The final campout of the year for the whole pack is our Shenandoah Springs Campout (May 31-June 2, 2024).

For the Webelos 2/AOL Scouts, this is their final event as a Cub Scout, capped with a memorable “bridging” ceremony to Boy Scouts for those scouts who are continuing the Scouting adventure.

What to bring (whether camping or not):

If camping, see additional gear list.

Every child and adult must have good shoes and a good flashlight.  It will be very dark after the campfire.

  • Cub scout uniforms
  • Camp chairs – there are some logs to sit on but they are limited.
  • Trail snacks
  • Water bottle filled with water
  • Rain jacket/pancho

Device policy: We want the scouts to enjoy the outdoors with friends. Scouts and other children may not use electronic devices outside of their tent.

Facilities: Latrines are available near the campsite.  There are no showers.
