Spring Campout at Washington Monument State Park

To participate in our April 6-7 Spring Pack Overnighter at Washington Monument State Park, a permission slip must be filled out for the scout (attached to this event in Scoutbook). Health Form AB is required for *all* participants including adults and siblings. If you have completed the form within the last year it is still valid.

What do I need to pack?

Scouts can wear their yellow “Class B” shirts rather than their uniforms.

The pack has reserved Youth Group sites 2 & 4. Official check-in time is 3pm, so no tents should be setup before that time. This park is along the Appalachian Trail so plan to do some hiking!


Take 270 North towards Frederick. In Frederick, take 70 towards Hagerstown. Take Exit 49, MD Alternate Route 40. Travel westbound (turn left) on Alternate 40 for approximately 9 miles. At the top of South Mountain, turn right on Washington Monument Road. After 1 mile, the road intersects with Zittlestown Road at a four-way stop. Go straight to enter the park.
