These weekend adventures are similar to our Monte Sano Campout, but slightly more laid back.
Our favorite place for this campout is Camp Jackson. 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. We have typically taught canoeing safety Saturday after lunch and then send the cubs with an adult out on the calm waters of Camp Jackson.
In 2022 we instead went to the NAS Pensacola Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show at Pensacola Naval Air Station and camp within walking distance of the Gulf.
