Let’s just get this out first – Tanah Keeta was a great campout. This is an official Boy Scout campground in Jupiter, Florida ran by the Gulf Stream Council.  The campgrounds, facilities, amenities were great but the weather was fantastic!!  Who would of thought we would have such great weather camping in April.  We also had a great turnout with about 30 campers.  There was great food, a hike, we saw wildlife, used the pool, enjoyed the hot showers and as always had some terrific camp fires…

This year’s District campout was two weeks ago and I must say how AwEsOmE it was.  Definitely one of our better ones this year.  There were many Packs from the District as well as two Troops for support – our very own Troop 357 and Troop 69.   The theme for this Family campout was Olympics with each Pack designating a Country.  There were many creative sports on the field including Javalyn throw, Circular Dodge, Long jump and our own Shot put & the Untie Relay.  Dinner was also an event on its own…

Many thanks to all the Leaders, Committee Members and Parents whom made the campout incredible!  Enjoy the Pics!

 

40th_oldcutlerhikeIt’s official and in the books.  The 40th Annual Old Cutler Hike took place on Saturday and the weather was absolutely wonderful.  We had a total of 11 kids along with 6 parents and guess what, WE ALL FINISHED!!!  During the trail, we saw many historic sites such as the Tequesta Circle, Viscaya, Mrs. Maud Black’ home to name a few.  We also had a great scavenger hunt which kept us all entertained and on point to go on.  At mile marker 6.5, we had lunch and relaxed for a good 20 minutes before we started the rest of the trek.  Sometime after 4:15, we reached our destination in Pinecrest and everyone let out a sign of relief.

I could not be prouder of these Scouts (as well as the leaders and Parents).  Kudos to All!

Enjoy the pictures!
