These weekend adventures are similar to our Monte Sano Campout, but slightly more laid back.
Our favorite places for this campout are at Camp Jackson and Monte Sano State Park. Camp Jackson is one of the 5 camps held by the Greater Alabama Council. This camp is beside the Tennessee River and we’re able to take advantage of everything the river has to offer, including fishing and canoeing.
Monte Sano State Park gives us the opportunity to enjoy all that camping has to offer, while staying close enough to home to run kids to a sporting or other event if necessary. At Monte Sano the focus is on hiking and wildlife.
