A Weekend to Remember: Cub Scout Pack 345 Spring Campout

A weekend filled with fun, adventure, and camaraderie for Cub Scout Pack 345 and their families, despite a rainy start.

Many families arrived on Friday, eager to set up camp and enjoy a weekend filled with adventure and bonding. Although Saturday morning brought rain, the clouds eventually cleared, making way for a beautiful day filled with activities and laughter. Here’s a recap of the fun we had at the Cub Scout Pack 345 Spring Campout.

Despite the rain on Saturday morning, the spirits of the families and scouts remained high. Most of us waited-out the morning storms in our tents. Once the sun came out, breakfast was served and everyone gathered for the flag ceremony at Camp Revere. The entire pack then embarked on a hike to the pirate ship on the lake and the nearby amphitheater. Afterward, the younger scouts headed back to camp, while the older crew continued their adventure by completing the lake trail.

Lunchtime rolled around, providing a chance for scouts to rest and recharge before diving into a variety of afternoon activities. Scouts practiced their skits, worked on adventure requirements, and enjoyed some free time to explore the campsite and bond with their fellow scouts, making the most of the sunny weather. The afternoon also saw a flurry of fishing activity, with scouts catching bass, brim, and even a box turtle. All the catches were released back into the wild, teaching the scouts the importance of respecting nature.

The evening began with a delicious supper with each den and their families. Scouts then prepared for the highly anticipated dessert competition, presenting their sweet treats to be judged and enjoyed by all. As the sun began to set, scouts and families assembled at the Mead Fire ring for a heartwarming campfire. The fire provided the perfect setting for singing songs, sharing stories, and performing skits that showcased the scouts’ creativity and teamwork.

With bad weather forecast for early Sunday morning, many families decided to take precautions and head home. A special thank you goes out to those who stayed behind to help with campsite clean-up and ensure the area was left in pristine condition.

In conclusion, the Cub Scout Pack 345 Spring Campout was a fantastic weekend filled with adventure, learning, and overcoming challenges. The rain did little to dampen the enthusiasm of the scouts, and the weekend’s activities brought families and friends closer together. We are grateful for the dedicated leaders, volunteers, and families who made this experience possible and look forward to more incredible campouts in the future!
