McKinney Falls

Our first camp out of the 2010-2011 year promises to be a lot of fun and easy to do!  McKinney Falls is 20 minutes from Bryker Woods, so you don't have to drive all day to get there.

  • Sat. October 23 - Sun. Oct. 24, 2010, at the Youth Group camping area at McKinney Falls State Park. Official check-in time is 2 pm. The Pack covers site fees but individual families must pay for admission to the state park ($5/person 13 years old or older, or by using the Texas State Parks Pass).
  • Can't make it for an overnight? You're welcome to come out for the day and the campfire, or on Sunday morning.

  • The Schedule:

    2 pm Check in -- Pack 9 is camping at the youth group camping area.
