Pack 43 Annual Spring Campout

Pack 43, from Clifton Park, chose Lawson Lake County Park for their annual Spring Campout.

Saturday started out pretty wet, but thanks to Walden Lodge, the kids were able to work on skits and arts & craft, and, play board games and card games until the rain let up enough for outdoor activities. They created light sabers out of colored duct tape and had mock battles on the stage.

The group went on two hikes: one around the Lower Camp Loop and another later in the day around the Upper Camp Loop. Both the adults and the children enjoyed exploring the property. The group also fished from the docks.

Walden Lodge was a great asset for meals. The large area in the back allowed for food storage, food preparation, and even enough room to setup a wash/sanitize/rinse station that the scouts used to wash their own mess kits.

The campfire program was held indoors due to weather. The boys did their skits on the stage. One of the leaders led the group in "Repeat After Me" songs. Awards were given for fishing and best dessert. At the end of the night, the kids made s'mores in the fireplace.

On Sunday morning, the kids had bacon, donuts, home fries, orange juice, and Mickey Mouse pancakes. Clean up and packing up was a team effort. Everyone helped each other to take down tents and pack cars.

Cub Scout Pack 43 is already planning next year's Spring Camp out at Lawson Lake.
