Cub Scout Campout

Jacked pitched and slept in his own tent during his first Cub Scout campout. The whole family joined in the fun as well, (brought the camper) and took part in some really fun activities. Now that Jack is a Webelo, he shares more responsibility in his pack. We helped sponsor an activity (homemade ice cream) and helped make breakfast for our group of 50. We also flew kits, made pet rocks, acted out skits next to the campfire and participated in a flag retiring ceremony.

Ice cream was one of the favorite activities. It kept us cool while we were making it and eating it! We used a combination of spoons and straws to taste the treat, after rolling around our double-bagged recipe inside a can with ice and salt.

Two other boy favorites were the egg toss and learning to launch little weed rockets. (Thanks Mrs. Anderson--sometimes it's the littlest memories that kiddos treasure!) To see the activities in a little more detail, click the photos or go here to see more Campout Photos.
