October 21st - 23rd, 2016

We will be camping at the Ross Prairie Campground and biking at Santos Campground on the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway.

This is at the trailhead of Florida’s best bike trails, biking on several types and levels of trails, and finding a nearby springs to swim in! 

Time to get your bike all tuned up and ready to go!   The information sheet has more bicycle information to review.

  1. INFORMATION SHEET - Print it, READ IT, and put it in your Troop notebook  Use it to prepare/pack for the trip.   
  2. PERMISSION FORM  - Print it, have your parents sign it, and bring it to the Troop Meeting with payment on May 2nd Meeting.
  3. CAMPOUT AGENDA  -  Print this and bring on the campout!
  4. Pack using the PACKING LIST and your Scout Book.
  5. Patrol Menu Page - Patrol Members may VIEW (but not edit) their menus any time as they are being developed.   Grubmasters may go here to PRINT their menu ( once approved) before shopping.   Patrol Leaders and Chief Cooks may EDITuntil approved by an adult leader.
  6. SW = Wheelie (parents are asked to not tell/guide your scouts to this)
SPECIAL CAMPOUT CONSIDERATIONS - All of this is covered in the information sheet, but here's a few things to especially pay attention to:
  1. Prepare your Bike - These trails are hard on bikes.  Be sure everything is in good shape, bring extra tools and perhaps tubes.  
  2. Drop off your Bike - On Thursday, you're required to Drop Off your Bike.
  3. Swimming - We are swimming in a springs on Sunday.  Bring your scout swim suit or swimmable scout shorts and if you like bring mask & snorkel.
  4. Breakfast Saturday AM.  Each scout does their own "trail breakfast" on Saturday AM.  Make it quick & easy.  If you're brining something cold, you need to keep it cold yourself.
