Not a camper? No big deal. We as a Pack will help all new families learn what they need for equipment and supplies for a Cub Scout campout, and we camp as a unit so that there will always be more experienced families to help out if needed. Also, Cub Scout camping is not primitive backpack camping. You can bring almost all the luxuries of home to a Cub Scout campout if you want. Also, very little camping, usually one night or less, is required to earn a Cub Scout rank. However, camping usually ends up being one of the parts of Scouting that the Scouts like best, so you may find your Scout asking you to take him out more often.
