Pack hike- Saturday, July 16, 9 am

posted Jul 8, 2022, 8:18 PM by Cubmaster 501 Scouts
Remember that if your Scout attends this hike, or another Scout event, during the month of July, they'll be on their way to getting the summer activity pin! This pin is awarded to Scouts who participate in a den, pack, or council event during June, July, and August.

Please bring your scouts and families and join us for our July pack hike at Castle Rock State Park located in Saratoga. We will be meeting on July 16th at 9 am. This park is a popular one for many families with children. Please navigate to the Castle Rock Main Parking lot. There is a $10.00 parking fee per car. After paying for parking, meet at the far end of the parking lot by the picnic tables and near the restrooms. The trail to the rocks is a short walk away. We will be taking the Castle Rock trail which leads to some huge rocks to climb on, full of rock ledges and cubbies.  It does get cold at the higher elevations so you may want to bring a jacket.  Please be aware that you need to be prepared to watch your kids climb, and be able to set your own limits on the heights you feel comfortable with them climbing up to. The hike and play time should last about 2 hours. 

You also want to bring the 6 essentials for a cub scout hike: first aid kit, water bottle, flashlight, trail food, sun protection, and a whistle!

If you arrive late, take the trail and meet us there. Look forward to seeing you all there!
