The Pack 46 Fall Campout will again be at the Frank Childressn Scout Reservation in Diamond, Missouri, near Joplin. It’s a great spot with plenty of room to run around and enjoy nature. There is plenty of hiking, a trout pond, and more! We’ll have a hike, fishing, kickball, a Whittlin’ Chip class, and sessions on two Webelos Activity Badges (parts of both Readyman and Outdoorsman). You can sign up and pay via the links below. If you have questions, please contact Cubmaster Greg Bland.

Pack campouts are family campouts, and all members of the family are welcome. Every Cub Scout must be accompanied by at least one parent or legal guardian. The only adults allowed to sleep in a tent with a Cub Scout are the Scout’s parents or legal guardians — no exceptions. For more information on these BSA policies, contact Cubmaster Greg Bland.

AS soon as you exit, take the first right, then continue on around and follow the signs into Frank Childress Scout Reservation.
