Last weekend was Back to Brownsea. Back to Brownsea is an opportunity for cub scouts looking for a troop to see what camping is like in our troop. It is also a recruiting camp out for us. Weblos from Packs 22, 25, and 53 attended. Only first class scouts and above can attend if they have gone to the latest ISLT or TLT. The reason scouts would want to attend is because you get service hours and you’ll probably have a great time. We had a leave no trace and a knot tying class for the Weblos. They also earned their Forester and Naturalists pins through classes. Most the Weblos I talked to on the campout said they were enjoying it. While we were setting up capture the flag some on the Weblos put their flag in a yellow jackets hive on accident. About six or seven weblos were stung repeatedly but everyone was okay besides some welts and itching. After this incident we didn’t do any of the games we ha planned. We had a great time at the campfire where we had skits, songs, and story’s. The next day we had our Scouter’s Own prayer and packed our Bags. The trip lasted from 11/2/12 to 11/4/12 at the Withalacoochee state forest/river park.
