Apple River Canyon Campout

Posted by Scout Webmaster on Sep 27, 2016

The arrival of Fall brought the Troop's first camping trip of the season to Apple River Canyon State Park. A crew of eleven scouts and four leaders ventured to this hidden gem in mid-September for a fun weekend of hiking, fishing and camp activities. Scouts worked on rank advancements, caught some trout, dined on delicious food and enjoyed a great afternoon of wading through the river while splashing along the way. When the crew called it a day, the nights bright full moon highlighted the hooting owls and yelps from the wandering coyotes. The weather was perfect and the crew enjoyed a great weekend in the woods of northwestern Illinois.
