Open to all Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturers or Sea Scouts, leaders and their families from the York District and Palmetto Council. On September 8-10, 2023 at Lakewood Camping Resort in Myrtle Beach our council is hosting the annual Beach Sweep Weekend. You can arrive Friday Night or Saturday am, but if attending please be at the campground by Saturday 9am. All the Scout Organizations will be walking the beach in the morning to clean up trash along that section of Myrtle Beach. Its a great way to camp out and earn volunteer hours at the same time! New Families to Pack 108- this is a great intro to Camping Event as there is a Wal-Mart about a mile away should you need something, and you can eat some or all your meals at local restaurants if you don’t want to cook at the campsite.
Price for this event is $36.00/family- which includes both nights and a patch for the Scout. This price is the same if you arrive Friday night or Saturday Am as we have to book sites through Palmetto Council for the entire weekend. Food options are on the individual families- you can cook at the site, go out to the restaurants or a little bit of both. After doing the Service Project in the morning the rest of the trip is up to you how to enjoy. The camping area is on the beach, so you’ll have access to the Ocean and the resort has a small water park within the grounds that’s free to use as well. It’s a fun weekend of camping.
