Class A event

Pack Event for June – Friday 6/2 @ 2pm – thru Sunday noon 6/4 – Family Camp at KOA and Graduation

Sign-up link will be forthcoming so you can let us know you’re coming please.


Here is the preliminary plan and you’ll be updated as we finalize things:


The June Pack meeting is our annual family camping event where Pack 62 reserves tent camping spots here in VB at the KOA on General Booth Blvd. It’s a great break-in for novice campers where you’re close enough to home so you can go back and get anything you forgot! You can get set up as early as Friday afternoon 2pm for a Friday night campout (great way to figure out what you need for Saturday night!) and enjoy an informal night of fellowship and tent camping with bonfires and whatever else you like. Friday night is just for fun and whether you camp both nights or not at all, please do join us for the official ceremonies Saturday afternoon beginning at 4pm.


The formalities: Saturday afternoon we hold our June Pack Meeting starting at 4pm (so you can disappear Saturday morning and during the day for sports etc). Scouts will receive any remaining awards and recognition (generally not much left at this point), followed by Rank Advancement ceremonies where all of the Scouts will advance to the next level and receive new neckerchiefs and books. All in, things will last about an hour followed by a pot luck style dinner. The pack will provide a main course like chicken, hot dogs, etc and each family is asked to bring a side or a desert.

PLEASE bring a side dish to share with dinner and include what you’re bringing in your sign-up on the link that will be posted soon. Pack is also providing s’mores stuff for after dinner!


Saturday night is definitely the night to camp! Bonfires multiply….. Light breakfast Sunday morning on the Pack and a few of us sometimes get creative with this part. Eggs in a bag anyone?


We’ll reserved tent sites TBD and we can put multiple tents on each site. We’ll save a portion of the space for our ‘event location’ – aka the ceremonies, the camp bonfire, and dinner set-up so please steer clear of that open space once we publish the site information.


Sign-up link will be posted here and please indicate whether you’re attending, how many, and what side dish you can bring once it
