Fall Family Campout

Our annual Fall Family Campout is an important event in our year-long program. Our Cub Scouts will learn to embrace the outdoors in a safe environment all the while growing closer with their family and fellow scouts. It’s a great opportunity for our boys to learn leadership, teamwork, and other life skills!

Be sure to check out the FAQ located near the bottom of this page. It’s full of helpful information including a detailed map.

Friday Evening

Note: Families are welcome to camp both nights, Friday only, Saturday only, or come for Saturday afternoon.

After arriving and setting up camp, families will eat dinner on their own.

Next, while parents enjoy the campfire, scouts and siblings will watch a kids movie on a GIANT inflatable movie screen! Don’t miss out! 


Note: Families are welcome to camp both nights, Friday only, Saturday only, or come for Saturday afternoon.

Friday night campers can enjoy the morning as new families arrive and set up before lunch. Speaking of, breakfast and lunch is not provided, so pack food or make a food run to a nearby Chick-Fil-A… We want your scout fed and ready for the afternoon activities!

In the afternoon, scouts enjoy pack activities like potato guns and field games. Next, dens will work on their respective adventures with various activities like hiking, nature, camping, cooking, knives, etc. These adventures are often required to earn their Cub Scout rank next May.

Finally, the pack feeds everyone a massive dinner followed by our Campfire activities and s’mores!


Note: Families are welcome to camp both nights, Friday only, Saturday only, or come for Saturday afternoon.

Pack 443 will provide breakfast followed by a brief Sunday Service. Next, there will be a surprise show (past events have included Birds of Prey and rockets). 

Finally, Tigers and new Wolves, Bears, and Webelos will earn their Bobcat award.

All that’s left is to breakdown camp, leave no trace, and head home!


All Pack 443 families are invited to the Fall Family Campout. This includes Scouts, siblings and parents. Other family members are welcome to attend as well as any Veterans in the family, as we salute our Veterans on this Veterans Day weekend. Some VIP guests may be invited by Pack leadership as well.

You must register for the event (registration website will be available mid-October) and you must have a completed waiver on file with the Cubmaster – one waiver required per family! Every family member attending must be listed on the waiver.

Head over to our Camping Gear page for everything you’ll need for a successful campout.

Please bring both! We will wear the red shirt all weekend except for our Saturday campfire and Sunday services when we wear our Cub Scout uniform (except for Lions who will wear their blue Lion shirts).

Saturday night dinner and Sunday breakfast are shopped, prepped, cooked, and served by Pack 443’s leaders and helpful parents.

Additionally, Pack 443 provides a beautiful, safe campsite, a U.S. flag in camp, three deluxe porta-potties and a hand washing station, Camp Chef stoves with griddles and propane, lanterns, camp signage, fire tools, First Aid Kit, camp kitchen cook kit loaded with cooking utensils, spices and more plus plates, napkins, paper towels, plastic utensils, several large jugs of water (for cooking, cleaning, drinking), Lysol wipes, several 6ft tables, warming racks, foil pans and more.

Guns, tobacco products, alcohol and fireworks are not allowed. Knives may only be used by adults or Scouts who have earned the right to do so (Bear Scouts and above who have earned their Whittling Chip card).


We also ask that Scouts refrain from bringing electronics like portable TV’s, GameBoys, iPads, tablets, etc. If they need to have a phone, that is OK – but it should NOT be used except for emergencies and especially not for groups of Scouts watching videos, playing games, etc. We want the Scouts to enjoy their outdoor time, not hiding in tents playing Minecraft and watching YouTube videos 🙂


Some older Scouts may be asked to carry 2-way radios in case they run into a problem away from the immediate camp area.

  • Scouts should only have access to their own tents, and should never enter another person’s tent. No exceptions!

  • Scouts may only sleep in tents with adults from their own family. No adult should share a tent with a Scout that is not in their immediate family.

  • Scouts from different families ARE allowed to share a tent, but with no adults in that tent.

  • No adult should ever be alone with a Scout.

  • Scouts are not allowed to throw things into the fire unless instructed to do so by an adult.

  • No littering! We are blessed to have use of a great local facility here in Frisco, TX and we firmly employ LEAVE NO TRACE CAMPING at all times. It is everyone’s responsibility to keep the campsite in pristine shape. We will need several volunteers to take home a bag of trash.

Please see below for a brief overview of activities.

No, there is no electricity available at the camp site. And the closest electricity is 1-mile away at the farmhouse. We do not allow loud generators.

No, there is no running water at the campsite, but there is a hose attached to the main farm building with water should we need it.

Our Cubmaster knows how to access the water. We will make runs to the farm house to re-fill our orange jugs as needed throughout the weekend.

That said, please bring a gallon jug of water to easily refill your water bottles.

We will need lots of help from the parents. Specifically, we want the Scouts and siblings to stay safe, so be on the lookout for any dangerous behavior. NO running near the fire, pushing, fighting, etc. No jumping in the creek or ponds.

We will also need help tending the fire, cooking, cleanup and more. If everyone pitches in, things tend to go quickly.

We also ask that everyone take lots of photos, as these are some great memories for the Scouts and families, and feel free to share your pics on Pack 443’s Memories page.
