BARREN RIVER LAKE SCOUT CELEBRATION
(August 2010) 

The annual Scout Celebration at Barren River Lake is always held on the second weekend of August at the Tailwater Campground.  The program has slowly evolved to become more of an event for Cub Scouts and younger Girl Scouts than for Boy Scouts and older Girl Scouts.  The Cubs got to shoot bows and arrows, hike a nature trail through the woods, go swimming in the lake, and participate in a Saturday night campfire program complete with skits.  They also got to build fires, do some cooking, sleep in real Boy Scout canvas wall tents, and experience camping with other units in a camporee environment.  They attended several flag ceremonies and an in-camp worship service on Sunday morning.  And they got to watch movies on the bus during the 2-hour rides both to and from camp!

The boys made trail mix on Saturday afternoon.  Kenneth enjoyed sampling his work!
