Upcoming Campouts

Aug 2018 Backpacking Camping Trip

We are planning an exciting introduction to backpacking for our Aug 10-12 Campout.  It will be at Caesar Creek State Park in Waynesville.  Friday night we are setting up base camp, and then hiking 3-4 miles on Saturday to the Beach area where we will be joining a state park sponsored event to watch the Perseid meteor shower.  The scouts will be building up to this activity at our weekly July scout meetings by learning about how to prevent blisters, how to read a map and compass, set up a shelter, and then cooking via a portable stove.

Now updated with menu as of 7/29/18
