Fall Family Camping

This year we will be camping at Camp Rainey Mountain, northeast of Atlanta.  We are excited because this will be a first time we have camped at Rainey Mountain for many of us.  Fees will be $15 per person for food and this year $11 for siblings who will participate in the activities. You can pay online at the Pack Store (2.75% increase includes credit card fees).   Online signup coming soon!

SLEEPING ACCOMMODATIONS
Camp Rainey Mountain has 9' x 9' tent platform sites and adirondack sites.

We will need some units to consider using adirondacks for the weekend which sleeps 6 individuals per unit. We may group either families together, adult males, male youth, female adults or female youth. Youth may be grouped together in the same adirondack provided they are within two years of age of each other.  Let us know if you are interested in sleeping in the adirondack shelters as a family.

Medical Forms: Download "All Scouting Events" (for events of less than 72 hours) here. Medical forms are required for EVERYONE attending this event be it Scouts, parents, siblings, etc. Since the trip is less than 72 hours, only Parts A and B are needed. The form can be filled out on the computer, printed and then saved for future needs. Give it to your camping committee.
