Long Cane District Boy Scouts Attend Camporee at Star Fort

Dozens of Long Cane District Boy Scouts from Troops 58, 53, 902, and 270 joined together at Star Fort Pond over the October 26th, 27th, & 28th weekend for their annual BSA Fall Camporee.  The theme for this year’s annual Fall Camporee was “Pumpkin Chunkin’”. 

Scouting activities for the scouts on Saturday morning included First Aid & Wilderness Survival Skills, Orienteering (compass & map reading skills), Knot Tying, Fishing, and Camp Cooking.  Following lunch on Saturday, Star Fort National Historic Site Park Ranger Jesse Garbowski stopped by and gave a very informative presentation of the history of Star Fort, the importance of wilderness conservation, and a brief history of the National Park Service.  The troops spent the afternoon building catapults from a pre-determined plan with natural wood & rope that each troop brought to the Camporee. Small pumpkins were used as ammunition for the catapults, and some distances thrown exceeded 100 yards. 

For the evening meal on Saturday, Troop 270 cooked a pig on their mobile smoker/grill “The Hunley”, (named after it’s “Hunley” like appearance), and each troop brought side dishes and cobblers cooked in dutch ovens for desert.  At  9:00pm the scouts held a campfire ceremony, which included a discussion about what it means to be a Boy Scout and to appreciate the outdoors, skits by the troops, and stories. 

On Sunday morning following breakfast, a Chapel Service led by Richard Turner, Scoutmaster of Troop 53 in Ninety Six, was held by the Star Fort Pond.
