Every year Pack 227 offers the opportunity to participate in our Family Camp. For the 2021 Family Camp we went to the Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center. The event was a huge success. This year our Cub Scouts and their families participated in a night hike, archery, BB gun, pool & water slide, mining for “gold” and coal, an awesome campfire with s’mores, and we capped the event with a zip line!!!
We want to thank all the families that participated and helped make the 2021 Family Camp a success. Our next Family Camp will probably be held in August 2022, so mark your calendars!
