Spring Family Camp Out

SFA-DEER_0834

It that time again….the flowers are in bloom, the birds are chirping, and it’s time for the Spring Family Camp-out!  This year the April camp-out will take place at Stephen F Austin State Park <Link to Stephen F. Austin State Park Website>.  The event will be from Friday, April 8th through Sunday, April 10th.

As always, even if you don’t want to camp, you and your family can still come on Saturday to spend the day at the park, participate in the Pack campfire program in the evening, and drive home that night.  The drive is a much closer to Houston compared to Lake Texan.

We look forward to having fun, learning new things, and playing together as a pack!  Go Pack 1800!
