Christmas Campout schedule: Please send me pictures of your activities and meals, I would love to share them on Sunday morning!! email@example.com.
Saturday, December 19th:
11:00am: Opening, flag, greeting, craft.
On your own: tent/fort set up. You are welcome to set up a tent outside, with your parent’s permission, but you don’t have to. The fun of the campout is sleeping somewhere other than your bed. Can you set up a fort under the Christmas tree? Under the dining room table? In the living room? Make it fun and cozy!
Lunch on your own: grilled cheese and soup. You can make it however you like, but if you are a Webelos or Arrow of Light Scout it would be wonderful if you could cook it camp style! Campfire Grilled Cheese | Grilling Grilled Cheese – Smoke Grill BBQ
1:00pm: Story & craft.
2:00pm: Scavenger hunt. On your own as a family. Get outside and see how many of the items on the game board you can spot! You can click the picture below and print or get the scavenger hunt here and print to take with you on your walk.
4pm: Jokes, videos, and craft time. Let’s make a pop tart building!
DIY Pop-Tarts Gingerbread House | Pretty Prudent I didn’t make the royal icing on this website. I prefer no raw eggs and I didn’t have meringue powder, so I found this great recipe and it worked perfectly!!
Dinner on your own: English muffin pizzas! Cook however you like, but if you are a Webelos or Arrow of Light Scout I encourage you to use a camp cooking method with a parent. Camp in a Box: How to make an English Muffin Pizza – Bing video
6:00 pm: Dessert (did you make your microwave s’mores?), games, and movie!
Good night, everyone!
Sunday, December 20th:
Breakfast on your own: instant oatmeal, milk, and fruit. Again, prepare it however you like, but if you are a Webelos or Arrow of Light Scout I encourage you to make it using a camp method with a parent.
10:00am: Scout’s Own, show and tell pictures, and closing.
