Troop 90 and Crew 2090 setting up to run the archery range for 2018 Boo Camp. We had sunshine, rain, snow, and hail at different times in the day! That didn't stop the arrows from flying and the cub scouts and their siblings had having a great time learning compound bow archery!
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!
