October 23rd - 25th, 2020

This campout will be one for the books.   Even if you're not much of a fisherman, this'll be a super-fun adventurous campout!

Our camp base will be in the primitive camping area at the Bayside Marina on the North end of the Sebastian Inlet State Park.  This is right on the Indian River, and has beach access (which we will be using).

Activities include hanging at the beach in the daytime and at night, enjoying a picnic in the park, swimming, and fishing on the pier, the South jetty, the catwalk, in the surf, and on the inlet shoreline.  

On Saturday night, we'll head to the beach near our campsite to enjoy some night fishing, dinner, and the stars. 

  1. INFORMATION SHEET - Both Scouts & Parents please carefully read this, prior to registration
  2. ONLINE PARENT PERMISSION FORM (optionally pay online!) - This replaces the parent permission form, and is to be filled out by the parent and scout, prior to Monday, October 19th.   There is an option to pay in the form, or a check or cash can be turned in on Monday.
  3. Scouts - Print out the Scout Personal Packing List or even better, click HERE to edit/save your own version in Ms Word so you can add your own stuff (best move).
  4. Campout Agenda - Print & Bring!


Although you're not "required" to fish on this campout, you'd be missing out on a lot of fun if you didn't.  Here's info about fishing gear:

  • Pole - Bring a larger stout pole.  This is fast moving water and surf, with strong saltwater fish.  A small lake pole won't cut it.  You need a bridge or surf rod.
  • Tackle - The Troop will have limited tackle to share.   A variety of heavier sinkers would be helpful.  Pre-made leaders are good too.
  • Lures - Consider bringing some larger saltwater lures, feathers, mirrors.
  • Bait - The Troop will have limited live and cut bait to share.   You may want to bring your own live bait bucket (and bubbler) and plan on buying your own if desired.
Bait Shop: We will be stopping at a Bait Shop on Saturday morning on the way to the inlet.  So, if you want to buy anything, be prepared.

Note:  We will send out more information about fishing & equipment via email.
