Cub Scout Pack 350

It was a beautiful -- but very cold -- weekend for this youthful group of campers.  Most had not been up here before and since cub scouts have to have an adult family member to camp overnight, there were a good number of participants.

Friday evening a handful of veterans and hard core campers made their way to the camp and got things set up, but the majority of the group came in Saturday.  According to the leaders, it was a loosely structured weekend with no organized plans. Essentially a weekend of enjoying the outdoors, hiking the trails, and acclimating to tent living and campfire cooking.  Even so, they had quite the tent city going on up in the main campground . . .

And someone thought they'd do a little hammock sleeping, too!
We were told that all the boys enjoyed climbing in and out of it, but decided it was way to cold to spend the night in it.

We caught up with the group at lunchtime on Saturday.  They were enjoying the pavilion and the playground.

But while the big group was at the pavilion, someone had to watch the campfire in the main campground, right?
We found these two willing volunteers enjoying the warmth and peace and guarding the fire circle.  "Enjoying the chaos from afar" was the quote!

They did a great job cleaning up and seemed to enjoy the long weekend. We hope Pack 350 will come back and visit again.
