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!

 

Our latest camping trip was to South Florida Council’ own Camp Everglades.  I have to admit, it was a tough weekend in terms of weather.  The Friday was ridiculed with heavy rain which was a deterrent to many.  Only myself and Jim, one of our Den Leaders were able to make it to the actual campsite.  When I tell you that my little car almost got stranded, there was a good 3ft of water on the muddy road.  Nonetheless, we made it in and made camp.  The four of us enjoyed the evening.  On Saturday morning, we had the majority of the campers roll in and we quickly established camp and were able to stay (for the most part) on agenda.

The highlights of the weekend were the two (2) tours we had – 1 at the Gumbo Limbo trail, where are resident know-it-all Mr. Kevin captivated Scouts, parents and even tourists to follow him through the trail as he spoke just about everything.  This was a fantastic campout and apologize for the delay in getting these pictures up.
