Fall Campout Info

Overview

The Pack’s Fall camping trip is at Camp Trask in Monrovia Canyon. The camping trip begins Saturday morning October 22  and continues through Sunday morning October 23. Families have the option to arrive Friday October 21 after 6:00 pm and spend the night before the camping trip officially begins.

The cost per camper is $35 per scout or child 6 years old and over, and $25 per adult or child under 6 years old, and the cost is the same for campers staying either one or two nights.

Scouts must attend with a parent or guardian. Additional family members may attend if space permits.

Signup Has Closed

The interest in camping this year has been at an all-time high.  The bittersweet news is that we exceeded our maximum number of sign-ups for the campout in just one night.  We will set a record for Pack 18’s largest camping trip!

We will be in touch with everyone who signed up to confirm registration.

For those who have not registered, the good news is that you can still go on a Cub Scout camping trip.  Camp Josepho in the Pacific Palisades is holding a Cub/Parent weekend camping event from Oct. 14-16.
