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.

Each summer, Pack 283 cub scouts attend summer camp, which is open to all packs in the area. We plan a few weekends from which families can choose to attend with other members of Pack 283. Thanks to all the Cub Scouts and their families for the fun this summer.
