Crew / Pack Hike
Don Robinson State Park
March 16, 2019
St. Simon's (Boy Scout) Venture Crew 2161 treated Pack 161 and families to an introduction to trail hiking and backpacking at Missouri's Don Robinson State Park. Crew president Christine S. led our group of 25 from the trail head to the box canyon area, passing small waterfalls, a natural bridge and stepping across several small creeks. We stopped in the canyon area to explore a little and have a snack. Backpack stoves were used to prepare freeze dried beef stroganoff, hot chocolate and Jiffy Pop popcorn. The crew also brought chocolate chip cereal bars, Slim Jims, raisins and peanuts to share. The day was beautiful and all went very well. Several families said that they would return. Thanks to the Cub Scouts and their families for participating. Thanks to our Crew and advisers for their leadership and also Cub Scoutmaster Ed Koeller for suggesting this outing.
