The Boy Scouts know how to have a good time.

Over the weekend we had a Spook-o-ree campout with the boy scouts. It all started on Friday evening and ended Sunday morning. Due to the poor weather conditions in the evenings we decided not to spend the night. The temperature was in the low 40's and for us Floridians that is COLD! We got to the camp site at 8:00 a.m. and stayed for a full day of fun. With the jam packed day of activities and crafts the time just flew by. We left the camp site at 9:30 p.m. and the temperature was already 49 degrees.

We started our day with a great game of volley ball.
Tug of war

The boys were looking forward to the BB gun shooting range.

The boys were so proud of their targets. The Cisco Kid got very close to the center.
We took a break for lunch and the Boy Scouts put on a full spread of sandwich meats and cheese. After lunch we went right back to the activities by making a sun catcher.
Kick ball
Running to third base.
Archery, another one of the boys favorites.

Leaf rub
Singing songs around the camp.

After all the song singing we had dinner of Hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken with all the fixings. After dinner we went to the Bon Fire ceremonies and participated in skits.
Then it was time for the Haunted trail walk. The boy scouts did a great job decorating the trail and walking around not being too scary for the Cub Scouts. After the haunted trail walk it was time to get around the camp fire and roast marshmallows and eat smores


  1. This looks like it was a well planned scout outing! What fun. It brought me back to my brownie scout days.

  2. Wow! Looks like a great time! Our council had a campout too but my guys didn't go. It got down in the 30s here at night, I can't imagaine being in a camper let alone a tent. You were smart to stay at home and comeback for the fun!

    Have a great week!

  3. I can not wait till my boys get to do join Boy Scouts! Looks like a super fun weekend!

  4. I am hoping the Cuboree is as fun as the Spookeree...My two men are going to that. The Spookeree looks like so mych fun!

  5. This looks like so much fun! I hope the Cuboree is as much fun as the Spookeree...that's what my men are going to in a few weeks. Looks like a lot of fun activities were planned and TCK was lucky to have such great parents to do this with him!

  6. Sorry, my first post wasn't showing up so I thought I needed to rewrite it..guess I have two comments about it now!! What a goof I am! :)
