Camping and events
Pack 283 has many events throughout the year including camping, a pinewood derby, and summer outings. Participating in Pack and Den activities (i.e., camping and outings) requires completion of Annual Health and Medical Form for each cub scout and participating adult. The form can be accessed from the Camping and Event Forms page.
Fall Family Camping - Stearns SCOUT Camp
Pack 283 had some fall fun at Stearns Scout Camp near Annandale on October 5 through 7, 2018. Thanks to all the Cub Scouts and their families for a fun weekend. Photos from the weekend will be on the Recent Events page soon.
Pack 283 members usually attend Polar Cubs at Camp Phillippo (near Cannon Falls MN), which has historically included snow-tubing, broomball, obstacle course, winter nature activities, crafts, snowshoeing, capture the flag, and snow golf. Polar Cubs is self-registration, feel free to go on a day with others from 283 or on any day that works for your schedule. The programming is provided by the council for this one-day camp and you will have fun with your child on any day you choose!
Pack 283 will host the next annual pinewood derby event in spring 2019. Check back for more information about next year's derby.
