Cubmasters Alan Kaufman of Pack 50 and William Love of Pack 450 cordially invite parents and families in the local community to attend their joint picnic at Camp Dan Beard in Northbrook on Saturday, June 1, 2019.

Families interested in joining a Cub Scout Pack, or are just curious as to what it means to be a Cub Scout, are strongly encouraged to come and see what being a Cub Scout is all about! The evening will start promptly at 4:30PM. The first activity will be a K9 demonstration brought to you by the Bannockburn Police Department! Come early to learn about all of the hard work our local K9 Officers do for our community!


Following the K9 demonstration, the Cub Scouts from Packs 50 and 450 will crossover to their next ranks! Watch Tigers become Wolves, Wolves become Bears, and Bears become Webelos right before your eyes!

After the crossover ceremony there will be a potluck dinner. Enjoy hot dogs and hamburgers, with all the fixings prepared by your local BSA Troops!

The evening doesn't just end with dinner! After dinner, there will be outdoor activities for the whole family. Members from Troops 50 and 52 will be teaching outdoor skills, which will of course include smores, ghost stories, and probably a lot of glow sticks! It's sure to be a great time!

The Campground is located at 200 Portwine Rd, Northbrook, IL 60062, just south of Lake Cook Road. Please park along Portwine Road, as parking is limited in the campground. Please bring your own camp chair or picnic blanket and bug repellent is highly recommended.

Cub Scout Pack 50 is made up of first to fifth grade families from Wilmot, Bannockburn and South Park Elementary Schools. Cub Scout Pack 450 consists of families from Kipling and Walden Elementary Schools. Families seeking more information about Cub Scouts are encouraged to contact the Cub Scout Packs for more information at or or for more information.
