Pack 1 Mpls will kick off our 2021-22 Scouting season with our first-ever “Bring a Friend Weekend” Camp, Oct. 2-3, at Rum River Scout Camp in Anoka. Any Pack 1 Mpls Scout who brings a friend* can attend this camp for FREE! ... And your invited friends can attend for free also! This camp-out will serve as our primary recruiting event this year. … We hope your friends will have so much fun with us at camp that they’ll join our Pack! And there will be A LOT of fun – archery, bass fishing, disc golf, obstacle course, gaga ball, a campfire with s’mores and a Campfire Program with skits, jokes and songs! And Scouts who remain unsure if they want re-join Pack 1 this season can attend this camp before deciding if they want to rejoin.
The cost for Pack 1 Scouts who will not bring a non-Scout friend is $15 per Scout, with one free parent/chaperon per Scout. The camp registration deadline is Wed. Sept. 29. Register for camp HERE. Meals, dishes and utensils will be provided. Leaders and parents will help with cooking and cleaning.
We will be camping in Campsite #8. The campsite is divided into distinct "patrol sites" that will allow us to camp in pods, by Den, as per state/Northern Star Council rules. Each patrol site has a fire ring, picnic table and nearby water spigot and latrine. Only members of the same family/household can share a tent. Female Scouts can share a tent with a male parent; male Scouts can share a tent with a female parent.
* Note: Friends who will camp overnight must attend with a parent or parent-approved guardian and must bunk in their own tent. Friends who will attend just for the daytime activities, but will not camp overnight, can be chaperoned by the parent/guardian of the Pack 1 Scout who invited them, if they are in 2nd grade or above; K-1 youth must attend with their own parent/guardian. Siblings who have never been a Scout are eligible to attend for free, and can bunk with their family members.
Rum River Scout Camp is located at 15659 Saint Francis Boulevard, Anoka, MN 55303.
