A cold first night turned into a great weekend of fun at AirCamp! Plenty of aircraft, scout games, archery, exhibits, and an enormous encampment of scouts! Two of our scouts even went up in a helicopter! This is a once-every-four years event sponsored by Blackhawk council in Rockford, IL.
Camping at the Apple River Fort State Historic Site, the scouts had a couple of cold (26F) nights but both days were clear and warm, making for a great pilgrimage to Galena, IL. They hunted trivia from the Generals, visited museums and a working historical blacksmith shop, and of course the incredible battle reenactment!
