Camp Hood family campout

Sept. 16-18 —  The campout had an estimated attendance of 85 Scouts, Webelos,  parents, and other family.  Activities included a high adventure C.O.P.E. course, which  involved a 65 foot climbing tower that had a rope course and, rock climbing wall, rappelling, and zipline.  The zipline was by far the favorite activity of the Scouts. The zipline was at the top of the climbing tower  and was 447 feet long through the pitch black woods.

Previously the older Scouts taught a multitude of Scout skills including first-aid and fire building. The classes operated for 45 minute periods  throughout the morning. Hours of rain plagued our camps with torrents of mud, but even that couldn’t dampen our spirits.
