The Pack 788 Fall Family Campout is scheduled for the weekend of Friday, October 21st - Sunday, October 23rd. The Pack will be camping at Albright Scout Reservation in Chesterfield County (website: FInley Albright Scout Reservation). We will be camping in site FC4 (see attached map).

The deadline for signing up for the fall camp out is the den meeting on October 3. All camp out fees and medical forms must be turned in no later than October 3. Fees and forms will be collected at all den and pack meetings until the deadline.

The cost for the fall camp out is $20 per person (maximum of $80 per family). The cost will include all activities and four meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday).

Everyone attending the camp out (including parents and siblings) must turn in a completed BSA medical form. The form is attached to this announcement.

We are working on several options for awesome activities for the scouts - all of which will be within the Finley Albright Reservation.


Popcorn & Peanut Fundraising

The popcorn and peanut fundraising campaign is off to a great start!

Please encourage you scout to participate by selling popcorn and peanuts. All scouts who sell popcorn will earn a credit (30% of sales) that is applied to their annual Pack Activity Fee.

If you did not receive an order form, please contact Tom Tyler at tr.tyler@ymail.com.

The deadline for scouts to turn order forms and payments in to Pack 788 is the pack meeting on Monday, October 24.

 Product that was ordered will be available for scouts to pick up at the den meeting on November 21.   

Please remember that scouts must receive payment for any order that is placed when the order is taken. The Pack can not fill an order without receiving payment first. And scouts must wear the full Class A uniform while selling popcorn and peanuts.

Important Pack Parent Meeting - September 26

Posted on Sep 23 2016 - 7:31am

Pack 788 Families,

As a reminder, we have a pack / parent meeting on September 26.

This will be a very important parent meeting. All parents are encouraged to attend, as we'll be providing information regarding the 2016-2017 program and registering scouts for the new year.


Returning Scout Registration - September 26th Deadline

Posted on Sep 23 2016 - 7:25am

A few notes on registration:

Returning scouts need to register for the 2016-2017 program at the pack / parent meeting on September 26. We will also be accepting payment and medical forms for the fall camp out. 

To register your scout, please submit the initial payment of the Pack Activity Fee, which will remain unchanged at $65, together with a completed medical form (a blank form is attached to this announcement). We will only be accepting payments of check or cash during the first few meetings (no credit cards... yet).  

When a scout is registered, he will receive the following: new neckerchief, slide and belt buckle (rising Wolves, Bears and Webelos 1 only). Scouts in these dens will also receive their new handbook if they did not receive it during the summer.

Pack Activity Fee: Once again, the total Pack Activity Fee will be $200. As noted above, the initial payment is $65, with the balance of $135 (less popcorn and peanut sales credit) payable after the popcorn / peanut campaign. Scouts who sell popcorn and peanuts will receive credit of 30% of gross sales. 

Medical Forms: Updated medical forms are required for all returning scouts. Medical forms are required for everyone who attends the camp out - including siblings and parents. If you think your family will attend the fall camp out, please submit a medical form for all camping family members.

If you have questions or comments, please contact Tom Tyler: 804-677-1626 or tr.tyler@ymail.com
