September 16-18, 2016 -- Camp Justis - Powhatan, VA | Capital Bike Trail - Henrico, VA

Bike Riding on the Capital Trail

This month's campout was originally scheduled to be whitewater rafting at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC.  However, after the unexpected death of a park visitor due to a brain-eating amoeba, the whitewater portion of the park was closed back in June.  Out of an abudnance of caution, we decided to scrap those plans altogether and go with a backup.

June 19-21, 2015 -- Camp Justis - Powhatan, VA

Canoeing On The James River

The Summer campouts always tend to be more low key than normal and this month's was no exception.  With a bunch of boys out of town on the High Adventure trip to Seabase down in Florida and a lot of others on family vacations and such, we only had about 25 boys on this trip, including nearly all of our first year scouts.

May 15-17, 2015 -- Fishburne Family Farm - Mt. Sidney, VA

For our May 2015 campout, we traveled West again, but this time to Mt. Sidney, VA, to the farm of one of our Asst. Scoutmasters - Howard Fishburne.  Our original plan was to camp at his mountain farm, but due to heavy rainfall which made the road impassable, we had to fall back to Plan B.

We arrived at the Fishburne Family Farm Friday evening just in time to enjoy a really nice sunset.
