When the June camp-out was being planned by the Scouts, they wanted a relaxing camp-out without any planned activities.  Well, there were still plenty of activities as the troop camped at Moraine View State Park near LeRoy, IL.  The scouts had time to swim, play baseball, frisbee and dodge the rain.  Ok, the last one is not recognized as a professional sport, but it is part of being outdoors.  The scouts learned how to cook in the rain, including setting up a rain shelter to use Dutch ovens. 
Our Philmont trekkers joined us for the trip and we had a chance to watch them tear down their campsite in the early morning and go hiking with their possessions on their back.  They did join the troop for dinner and showed the scouts how to cook delicious dehydrated food on light weight stoves.  OK, they said the food was delicious.
