May 15-17 - Pack 859 Cub Scout Family Camp Out at Craigs Creek

Please make plans to join us for our pack sponsored Camping Event at Craigs Creek.

Craigs Creek Group Area is perched near Laurel River Lake in the Daniel Boone National Forest about an hour and a half south of Lexington.

Our Pack has chosen this camp site several years in a row due to many favorable features of this camp site.  It is very peaceful and quiet with only 2 other camp sites in the park with plenty of space between the sites.  A large level grass field for the kids to play in.  Parking is right next to the camp site and best of all it has a shower house facility which is very nice if weather is warm to rinse off bug spray and sun screen.

If you only do one camp out this scouting year this is it because its free!
Due to all the hard work the scouts put in selling popcorn this is a sponsored event.  There is no charge for scouts/siblings/parents that want to attend but please register below so we know how many to expect.  Food will be provided by the pack, but please let us know if you have a food allergy we should be aware of.  Here is the proposed menu for the weekend
