Sid Richardson Scout Campout, October 20-22, 2017

Posted on Oct 12 2017 - 8:14pm

Our troop will be camping at Sid Richardson Scout Camp near Bridgeport.  The troop will be learning various scout skills, as well as completing cooking requirements for advancement.  We will try and include a 5-mile hike during the campout, so come prepared to backpack.   All food should be able to be backpacked in, so each meal plan should be backpackable. 

During the day, scouts can help with Webelos and Cub Scout activities including archery, BB guns, and pumpkin chunking.   Hopefully, our scouts will have the best scores! 

Sid Richardson will be hosting a Haunted Hayride where our scouts can dress up in their favorite Halloween costumes to scare families as they ride on a trailer through the woods of SR2.  Those scouts that do not have costumes can wear professionally made costumes owned by the camp, including Storm Troopers, Darth Vader, Super Heroes, and Villains.

Where:  Sid Richardson Scout Ranch

When:  October 20-22, 2017

Cost: $25  (Bring extra money for gas station snacks if the driver stops.)
