Webelos II - Den 4, 2019-2020
Den 4 Webelos have a fantastic opportunity to participte in a joint campout with the Boy Scouts on Lamma Island. This will be your scout's first step towards becoming a Boy Scout! We will leave via the Aberdeen ferry Saturday morning and return Sunday morning by 10AM. Webelos will camp with the Boy Scouts and parents will be closeby but in our own camp area. Once we arrive at the Lamma, we will hire a sampan from Sok Kwu Wan ferry pier to the campsite so we won't be trekking there.
Location: Lamma Island (YMCA campsite)
Cost: We will split food, activities, campsite, and sampan costs, amount TBD. Octopus card for the ferry.
Tents: Webelos will tent together and parents will tent separately. If your family does not currently have a tent, please consider buying one now.
Saturday 11/16: Meet 9AM at Aberdeen Ferry Pier (Fish market): Ferry to Sok Kwu Wan departs at 9:30AM sharp (bring Octopus card)
Sunday 11/17: We will take the 9:30AM ferry back to Aberdeen. Estimate 35 min travel time. ETA 10:05am.
We are planning to do:
- Rock climbing
- Kayaking / standup paddling / swimming
