Camp Green Dickson

October 26 - 28, 2018

We're heading to Camp Green Dickson, near Shiner, TX. This is a spacious, Boy Scouts of America-owned property, with tons of room for the kids to run around and have a great time. While there, we’ll do some hiking, fishing, den activities, and shoot off model rockets. Bring your fishing rods, model rockets and engines. We’ll have launchers there. Breakfast both mornings and dinner Saturday night will be provided. We hope everyone can make it.

Know before you go

  • Register. When you register, please indicate how many of your family members will attend, the length of your stay, and number of meals you’ll need. Having this information will help us better plan group activities and meals.

  • After registering, please follow the PayPal link to pay the $25/family camping fee.

  • When you arrive, drive toward the back right corner of the park. We have sites J and K. Park on the side of the gravel roads and come scout out the sites before unloading.

  • All pack members must fill out medical forms A & B. Either fill out the PDFs and email them to me, or bring them with you.

  • If you haven't camped out before, there's no need to buy a bunch of expensive equipment. Simple tents, pads, sleeping bags/blankets and a cooler can be acquired inexpensively at Academy or other big box stores.

  • If you are planning on launching a rocket, most hobby stores have both rocket kits and engines. King's Hobby on North Lamar offers a small discount for scouts as well.
