Cub Scout camping basics

Pack 8 Camping 101 

Camping is a great part of the Cub Scout journey, in Pack 8 it is a family affair. We are normally car camping so grab the little items that help make the family comfortable... just no RVs.
You can use this helpful list to make sure you are ready!
There are informational sessions at the start of each Scouting year, and our Outdoor Committee is always willing to help make sure your camping experience is GREAT!
