For those attending Family Camp, there will be a camp presentation at the May Pack meeting. If you cannot attend the Pack Meeting on Friday, BSA Medical Forms (see below) are needed for ALL participants. NO ONE will be allowed to enter camp if we do not have their form in our files.


On Saturday (6/2), lunch will be provided.  Drinks will be provided all weekend.  Saturday night dinner, snacks, and dessert, as well as Sunday morning breakfast will be provided by the pack and prepared by Troop 83 Leaders and Scouts.

Scouts and Family check-in is on Saturday, June 2nd.  Families can start to arrive at 8AM-9:30AM to set up tents and get situated.  The program begins at 10am, starting with the customary flag presentation and raising.  The day's program include 'fun stations' like axe handling, ropes, fire starters, hiking, kickball, and family free time.  During free time, you can hike, fish, or swim as a family.  The evening program is packed with good stuff, like a hot dinner cooked over an open fire, reveille, flag lowering, and campfire fun.

Scouts should start the day wearing their Class B uniforms (Pack T-shirt).

If you plan on biking during family free time, please have a helmet for the scouts and siblings.

Fishing is allowed from the camp beach.  NJ fishing regulations apply.
Please review the Family Camping Checklist and Family Camping Guidelines provided in the printable guide.
We will be at the Island Point Group Camping Site.  From Route 55 North or South, take Exit 35 and follow signs to the park.  The park is located between Centerton and Vineland on Route 540 (Almond Road).  A Google map and a map of the park are included below.


If you plan to use the canoe rental at the park during family free time, this is run by Al and Sam's Canoe Rental (www.alandsams.com).  Below is their liability waiver to save time at the rental counter.
