Pack 92 is camping at Sertoma Youth Ranch in Brooksville Friday, October 3rd - Sunday, October 5th
If you want to come on Saturday only, thats fine too.
Sertoma stands for "Service to Mankind"
The ranch is a non-profit organization who's mission it is to provide a rustic outdoor recreational area for the children of florida. Since they were founded in 1974, over 1500 youth groups have utilized the ranch for overnight camping.
The Sertoma Youth Ranch believes that children should inherit this small haven of florida in its natural state, and that caring, committed people, banded together, can and do make a difference.
The campout is free. The ranch requests, but does not require, donations of supplies. This includes restroom supplies, like toilet paper and cleaning products, and also building supplies, like electrical supplies, wood, fencing, or paint (a good opportunity to clean out your garage!) We will have boxes set out at the sign up table to collect these items pre-campout, so that you dont have to worry about bringing them with you to the ranch.
In the free youth camping area that the ranch offers, there are multiple bathrooms and showers, however no electrical hookups.
Scouts will have the opportunity to earn their soccer belt loop at the campout. If they already have that belt loop, they can show up just to show off their skills! They'll also be able to earn their astronomy belt loop Saturday evening.
If you've never been to a campout, this is a great one to attend because it is free and because the Sertoma youth ranch is a very natural and pleasant location. The camping area is shaded, there is a small creek that runs through the site, there are trails, a large open field, and even a playground.
There is a sign up sheet & information packet available at the table (during Den and Pack meetings).
