Burke Lake, VA
Jun 16-17, 2018
The 2018 Father’s Day camp out was competition-themed, filled with fun, fellowship, and football.
Cooking competition. Football. Desserts in Dutch ovens. Frisbee. Fishing. Cards. Lunch by Burke Lake. These are a handful of the memories from the Father’s Day campout. We saw tenured scout and new scouts, weathered ASMs and newly minted ones (The Litts – Welcome!). All had brighter smiles on their faces after this trip.
Whether learning how to cook in a Dutch oven, hook a fish, or clean the Troop 1128 way, there were many glimpses into deepening camaraderie and fellowship.
Scouts retook the Troop Cup after the adults failed to show in the 2nd half. No major injuries, but several bruised egos resulted. Congrats, Scouts!
Weather was beautiful at 76 degrees with clear skies. It sure would be great to have that each trip.
A special thank you goes to all the scouts and scouters who made this event possible, most notably Ryan D, Ian, and all the planners, drivers, and ASMs that helped keep the event safe and fun for our scouts.
