DUE TO BAD WEATHER WE HAVE OPTED TO WITHDRAW FROM BEACH JAM THIS WEEKEND.   The trip will be held again in May of 2012, and we will attend then.  Many of the rides are closed due to rain, and the forecast is for heavy rain all weekend.
Beach Jam is back and here is our opening event. Camp out on the Beach in Wildwood, NJ complete with Amusement Rides, 1 Dinner/2 Breakfasts, campfire, fireworks, and loads of fun. Any doubts just ask a scout who went last year or check out the pictures from last years event.
Scouts will head down early Sat, 9/24, sleep overnight on the beach in tents (please bring your own or contact me if you need a tent- bring empty grocery plastic bags to fill with sand to help anchor your tents). Scouts will return home on Sunday once they have had enough rides & fun.
Costs are:
Package #1 - Camp, Play & Dine Package - Includes admission to the amusement rides, beach camping Friday and Saturday night, boardwalk tram transportation, activities, 2 catered breakfasts and 1 dinner.  $60 per Registered Cub Scout; $69 per non scout (parent/sibling)
Pachage #2 - Camp & Dine Package - Includes beach camping Friday and Saturday night, boardwalk tram transportation, activities, 2 catered breakfasts and 1 dinner (does NOT include amusement admission) $40 per Registered Cub Scout; $45 per non scout (parent/sibling)
Money must be in by Friday, 9/16 to get the above prices. After 9/16 you will need to purchase tickets on-site for $5 more per ticket.
A number of us are planning to meet at AOOL parking lot at 7:45am Sat, and start heading down by 8am.   If you need to go directly to Wildwood I will have the Academy of Our Lady Pack 27 Flag flying at our campsite, and my cell number is 201-615-7267 if you can't find us.  We estimate overnight parking will be $20-30 per vehicle. We will setup camp on the beach between the piers at E Spencer Avenue.  
I look forward to seeing you all there!
