The weekend of April 23, our troop went on our first backpacking trip of 2022. We hiked roughly 4 miles, through very overgrown and washed out land. On the hike in we lost the trail, ALOT! But the way back was easier. We had 20 scouts on this trip! We would like to thank all the adults who came on this outing, and just congratulate everyone for completing this vigorous hike.
R-C family camp.
The Troops met at lookout mountain at 8:00 in the morning, and got to R-C ( pronounced R BAR C)
around 11:00 am. When we got there, we unpacked and had lunch that was made by the cub scouts. After lunch, we hiked to a nearby creek and enjoyed the view for a bit before heading back down to camp. When we arrived at camp, the scouts set up stations to teach the cub scout pack important skills. Each station was set up and taught by a patrol leader and their scouts. The stations consisted of soap carving, fire starting, orienteering, and rocket making/ launching. Each station was 20 minutes long, and the cub scouts rotated through them. The cub scouts enjoyed each of the stations while learning many important things they need to know to be successful scouts. After the lessons, there was free time and then dinner. The theme for dinner was Italian, so we had spaghetti with meatballs and garlic bread. After enjoying the dinner and desert (peach cobbler), we ended the night with a campfire filled with skits and laughs, and a flag retirement ceremony. Lights out was around 10 o’ clock. We got up at 7 and began to pack up. Around 8 ish, we had breakfast burritos and pancakes. After finishing packing up and picking up trash around 11:30, we headed home and arrived at lookout mountain at 1:30. Overall, this was a nice and easy campout that was beginner friendly. This outing had 15 Cub Scouts and
