If you were not able to attend the kickoff BBQ, please note the following.
Pack 809 is only collecting part of your annual dues. The remaining portion will be paid directly to BSA National/GGAC. The combined total should be $275 per Scout. In the past, Pack 809 collected all dues and then paid BSA National on behalf of all of our Scouts. If you are a new Scout, your BSA dues will be collected upon registration. If you are a returning Scout, you should receive an email in November notifying you that membership renewal is due before January.
We are asking each family to please sign up for either 1 year long volunteer job or 3 smaller volunteer jobs. The SignUp Genius link is in the registration form or may be found here.
We are looking forward to our BBQ on Wednesday 8/24. Please look out for our sign up email instructions. We are asking returning Scout families who sign up to bring water, a side dish or dessert. Our Pack will be providing hot dogs (vegetarian and gluten free options too).

This is an in-person day camp where you’ll discover and learn things down on the farm. Don’t miss out on an amazing fun filled week where Cub Scouts are expected to be able to play and participate in:
Valuable Cub Scout Skills/Crafts
Camp is open to all Boys and Girls (Cub Scouts) entering the 1st – 5th Grade. If your child is not currently a Scout, he or she can still attend!
Please note: The Council places the safety and wellbeing of our scouts, parents, campers, and volunteers at the forefront.Day Camp will only go forward if it is safe and in compliance with local, state and Boy Scouts of America directives. The ability to proceed with camp depends on having a sufficient number of volunteers to ensure the proper supervision of stable cohorts (groups) of campers as well as a sufficient minimum number of participants.
Yours in Scouting,
Paul Lannus – Day Camp Director, and Rand Mahoney – District Executive
