We had our 1st campout of the season two weeks ago and I can definitely call it a success.  We have many new Scouts on board both camping and coming out for the Saturday activities and had a wonderful turnout.

The only thing I will say is that the weather was a nuisance to say the least.  It rained, it stopped, the sun came out, the clouds moved in, it rained some more…. This went on throughout the weekend but we all persevered.  The Scouts stood strong and didn’t let the weather dictate their outing!

There were many activities on Saturday right after a great breakfast.  We went on an early hike, followed by a few games of Dodgeball.  The leaders/parents also joined in and had their 2nd annual Dodgeball challenge vs. the Scouts.  The Parents were able to retain their title as they beat the Scouts once again!  Better luck next time Scouts….

This was a great first campout as it was a good eye opener to the new Scouts and their Parents on what goes on.  I should also mention this was the first campout that we went green!  All the Scouts brought their meal kits and cleaned their own dishes.

This certainly was a win-win.  We were able to save space in the trailer, made cleanup considerably less, saved time, did our part in keeping the earth clean and if that was not enough, Scouts cleaned their own dishes.  We encourage all the Parents to purchase their own meal kit in order to keep this initiative moving.

Last Saturday several Scouts took part in community service at Camp Matecumbe.  We had a great turnout and a lot of fun.  The project finished a bit earlier than anticipated as there was many volunteers so our Bear leader, Mr. Kevin took us into the brush and gave us a great tour where I’m sure everyone learned something new; I know I did.  I’m very proud of all the participants and hope to plan more of these for the Pack this year.

This years Baynanza was a great success.  We were able to remove over 2,500 lbs of debris over at Palmetto Village!  A total of 8 Scouts participated and worked diligently to clean the park and mangroves from debris.  The Wolves were represented by Luke, Zane, William and Marcus and Webelos were represented by Zachary, Connor, Daniel, Dylan and Tony.  Great job guys…
