We started our campout at Lake Dennison this weekend on Friday evening with a lake view campsite and a clear view of the stars. We had a campfire and s’mores in the evening, and some played Magic the Gathering before going to bed. On Saturday morning, we had an excellent breakfast of oatmeal, bacon, and fruit; and we carried our kayaks to a small beach by the lake. We paddled around the edge of the lake while exploring many of the inlets, and we paddled through a beaver dam area with Canadian Geese and a Great Blue Heron. We finished our trek with a kayak race and mid-afternoon lunch. Following lunch, we did some rank advancement, put up an excellent rain tarp, played games, and later prepared dinner. The rain started in the late afternoon, and it became very heavy in the early evening. We had some flash puddles and leaks around some of our tents and had to returned after sunset to get some dry sleep.

Camp Nobscot Cabin Campout 2023
We had an excellent cabin campout at Camp Nobscot in Sudbury. We backpacked deep into the camp to the Haynes cabin near the great views of Tippling Rock. We were outdoors for much of the afternoon – and then settled into the cabin for dinner and evening board and card games.
For dinner we had beef stroganoff, a major Philmont treat, and the dessert burritos were fantastic! Scouts took advantage of opportunities to work on rank advancement and merit badge requirements.
We are looking forward to our next campout on April 29 and 30 at Sandy Neck Beach on Cape Cod.
