Pack 811’s Annual Summer Family Camp took place August 1st– 3rd in the beautiful mountains near Cedar Glen, CA. The excitement began on Friday evening with a sunset hike to the camp observatory. Scouts and their families gathered some interesting theories about black holes, while pondering the magnitude of solar systems! Amidst the clear night skies, outdoor telescopes enabled everyone to enjoy impressive views of the Moon and Saturn!
Although Saturday brought gray skies and intermittent showers, campers happily kept busy all day by testing their skills on the Indoor Rock Wall, designing personalized flags, learning about horsemanship and equine care and canoeing or fishing on Firebird Lake. A couple of our extra-lucky Scouts reeled in some impressive Trout! A relentless Saturday evening rainstorm provided us with the opportunity to further test our creativity by bringing our Pack Family Campfire Program indoors. With the efforts of a very talented and imaginative Pack Leadership Committee, the Camp Dining Hall was magically transformed into a warm and cozy fireside assembly. Cubmaster Koos served as our hilarious Master of Ceremonies while each family presented an entertaining skit. The Camp Kitchen Crew graciously baked up some gourmet s’mores for a late-night snack.
Our Pack Family was blessed with good road conditions and clearing skies for the drive home on Sunday, with many great memories of an adventurous weekend! Pictures of the event have started to come in and are available in the Pack Albums.
