Pack 773 is going camping Saturday 25 September at Little Bennett Campground in Clarksburg, MD.  All Scout and their families are invited to attend. Please join us for the entire campout or part of it. 

Pack 773 Activities

Please enjoy a picnic dinner with your family.  We will not be providing a fire or grill to cook this year.  

We will have games in the field and on the playground for the kids beginning around 4.  Parents and kids should wear sneakers and be prepared to play.  Oftentimes we have children versus parent games.  

There is a large playground located next to the Group site.  

Evening campfire will begin around dusk.  There are wood benches but bring camp chairs so that we can maintain proper social distancing.    

We will end our campfire with toasting marshmallows and making s'mores.  To maintain social distancing, a maximum of 6 people at a time will be allowed to toast marshmallows.  We will have the youngest children go first.

For those of you spending the night, we will provide a few morning snacks.  Please bring your own drinks.  *Swell brand water bottles will keep hot coffee made Saturday afternoon warm until Sunday morning- it will be day-old but taste oh so good.
