Please read the details below prior to registering.  Also, please understand that registration is first come, first served and your slot will only be guaranteed upon payment.  We have limited spacing available as outlined above, should your reservation come in after slots are filled, we will try to obtain more space for you or you will receive a refund. 

Pack 236 must load as a group on Friday night.  We ask that everyone be at the Pier no later than 7:30pm to ensure we are ready to board at 7:45pm.  Upon arrival at the Pier, please text 404-723-6402 with all members in your party.  This will assist in confirming our entire group is checked in and we can board on time. 

Please note that it will be February and could be cold and raining when you arrive.  You will need to hang out in your car until 7:45pm because there isn’t a large meeting place for our group at the Pier.  A link to restaurants near Patriots Point is provided below.

Shortly after boarding, we will participate in an orientation program conducted by the Scout Duty Officer where the rules of conduct, fire drill and other standards of behavior are explained.  We will then participate in a fire drill and physically traverse the escape route.  This will ensure everyone is on board ready to participate in the mandatory fire drill.  All campers must participate in the Fire Drill or they will not be permitted to sleep overnight on the ship.  Please notify Outdoor Chair of any persons with disabilities so PP can be notified.

All campers must be at least 6 years of age and all campers must be accompanied by a same gender Parent/Guardian due to Patriots Point berthing units being divided by gender. 

I.e. if you are a Male parent/Guardian and are bringing your son and daughter to Patriots Point, you must register a female adult to sleep in the Female Berthing area with your daughter.  If you are the Female parent/Guardian and are bringing your son and daughter, you must register a male adult to sleep in the male Berthing area with your son.

All adults attending this trip MUST take the Youth Protection Act Training and provide printed proof of taking it upon arrival at the Pack Meeting prior to the trip on January 23. 

Due to berthing limitations, last minute camper reservations are not permitted. 

What is the registration process?

All registration links are posted on www.pack236.com.

Payment is required upon registration.   Your spot will not be confirmed unless payment is received upon registration.  Registration will close January 8thwith no late registration option available.
