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.
