Fort Parker Fall Camping Trip

Pack 60 scouts and their families attended the Fall camping trip to Fort Parker State Park.   We had over 35 people in attendance braving the occasional rainfall and high 50’s overnight lows to make this trip a terrific success.   The park was having its 75th anniversary celebration on Saturday so there were multiply activities to participate in including fishing, a pontoon boat tour of the lake, free canoe and kayak use.  There were nature displays, ham radio operators a buffalo soldier talk and some vendors on site.  The boys got to try casting practice to catch a simulated fish and we even got to try our hand at using an atlatl to throw a small spear at a round target and a target boar.   Both nights included s’mores and Saturday we had a campfire program complete with skits.  We went on a few nature hikes and before leaving camp Sunday even went on a short hike to a geocache on a nature trail.
