The days are getting longer and warmer, and you know what that's time to get out the camping
gear and get ready for fun days in the great outdoors and nights under the stars.  We've got a number of camping opportunities coming up in the next few weeks--we hope you can join us!

First up, District Family Camp, which is at Camp Orr (click here for a map).  This is taking place May 2-4.  Cost is $45 for a parent/scout duo, then $15 for each additional camper.  Food and activities for the whole family are provided---all you need to bring is your camping gear!  Act quickly, though--the prices mentioned are at an early-registration discount, and increase after April 21st.  Contact Cubmaster Dave Weston this week if you want to register.

The next camping event is Scouts Night with the NWA Naturals, which will be at Arvest Ballpark in Springdale on Saturday, May 10.  Cost is $8 per person, which covers admission to the game, a cool Scout patch, and camping in the outfield after the game.  There are also meal vouchers available at a discount if ordered at the time of sign up.  For more information, click HERE to see the flyer. You can print this form out, fill it in, and hand it in with payment at the April 21st or 28th meeting.  April 28th is the last day to sign up as a Pack--you can sign up after that, but there is no guarantee that you will be seated with our Pack.

Finally, our annual Pack Crossover Family Campout.  This will be May 16-18, at beautiful Green Valley Bible Camp just east of Rogers (click here for a map).  Join us for a weekend of fun activities and camping as a Pack family!  Festivities culminate in our annual Crossover Ceremony, where each boy in the Pack moves up to the next rank in Cub Scouting.  For those who do not wish to camp, or for friends and family who would like to attend, the ceremony will be at 6PM on Saturday, May 17.  Cost for camping will be $5 per person, per meal.  Meals being served include breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday.  Be watching your email for information on how to sign up.
