  • Wear your uniform and bring a Scout t-shirt to change into after awards are done. Bring a water bottle, flashlight, good closed-toe outdoor shoes and a jacket.
  • Camping? Bring a tent for you and your family, sleeping bag, pillow, pajamas and a tooth brush. The Pack will provide an evening snack and breakfast. Note that Scouts can tent together and Scouts can tent with their own family but Scouts can not tent with an adult who is not a family member.
  • Not camping, feel free to join the group in the morning again for breakfast (around 8am) and/or geocaching (9am-11am).
  • Geocaching/activity participants please complete Carver Parks waiver form>  Activity Waiver   (we should also have some hard copies available at the event).

  • Site map at Lake Minnewashta Park Map
  • Lake Minnewashta Park is located off of TH 41 west of Chanhassen between TH 5 and TH 7.
  • Go to Picnic Area #3. After entering the park, go left and follow the road around until you see Picnic Area #3 on your right.
  • Amenities at Picnic Area #3 include pit toilets, drinking fountain and a shelter.  There are also flush toilets at nearby picnic areas (#1 at the beach & #5 next to the playground).
  • PARKING:   We are planning to have a number of parking passes at the picnic shelter for anyone who does not have a Carver Parks sticker.  So you should not need to pay for parking at the gate (which will probably be unattended).
  • All Cub Scouts and Adult Leaders should attend.
