Our October Pack Meeting will be held at Stony Brook Conservation Land (aka East Boston Camps(EBC)) on Saturday, October 7th at 3:00 PM. 

This is a family outing with an optional overnight camp-out.  Activities include den-led activities and games, a Bring-Your-Own dinner, a rousing campfire, den skits, making smore's and general mayhem.  Everyone is invited to pitch a tent and the spend the night, but that is not a requirement for attending the outing. 

This is a Class B event (Pack 100 racing shirts). We will hand out Class B shirts to all our new Scouts at the meeting

Enter EBC from Depot Street, and drive to the very top of the hill and park around the field. Click here for a map showing the location more clearly.
