We had our fall Pack 19 campout this weekend. I think it went very well. We stayed at Devil’s Den State Park. This was our third pack overnighter, and it was our largest camping group yet. We had about 20 Cub Scout families camping with us Friday night.
We had three eating groups: the Webelos families, the Bear families, and the Tiger and Wolf families. This was our first campout in which we ate together by dens. Previously, most people on our pack campouts would cook their own food, but I think having group meals made the experience much more enjoyable.
Saturday, we woke up to a chilly fall morning. After breakfast, we hiked the Yellow Rock Trail (about 3 miles). We had 26 Cub Scouts on that hike as well as lots of parents and siblings. Saturday afternoon, we hiked the Devil’s Den Trail (about 1.5 miles) which has a lot of cool-looking cave and rock formations.
Saturday evening after supper, we had a 30-minute informal campfire program which was nice.
Everybody seemed to have a good time on the campout.
