October Breakfast Hike and Campout

2020 Breakfast Hike - "Back to Basics"


The Horse-Shoe Trail District’s 2020 Breakfast Hike will be held at J. Edward Mack Scout Reservation on October 2-3, 2020. The Saturday hike is designed for Cub Scouts and their parents. Due to COVID-19 restrictions Cub Scout units will be scheduled to attend either a morning or afternoon session. 

The main purpose of the Breakfast Hike is to expose young scouts to activities in which they will participate throughout their years in scouting. Cub Scouts will participate in stations revolving around the theme of Back to Basics. This is also an opportunity for Cub Scouts to meet some of their outdoor requirements while walking through camp. 

Our Pack will be assigned to the morning or afternoon session upon registration. 
Morning Session: For those arriving Saturday morning, check in runs from 8:00-8:30 am. The stations will begin at 8:30 AM on Saturday and end promptly at 11:30 AM. 
Afternoon Session: For those arriving Saturday Afternoon, check in runs from 1:00-1:30 pm. The stations will begin at 1:30 PM on Saturday and end promptly at 4:30 PM. 

You have the option to camp Friday night or just come up Saturday morning. For those camping Friday night, see below regarding dinner on Friday. A short campfire program and cracker barrel snack will be provided. Please bring some water or something to drink  (no glass bottles) to have with the cracker barrel. Breakfast will be coordinated at the campsite on Saturday morning by the Pack. A Saturday bagged lunch will be provided for everyone.
