Scout Fest 100

Scoutfest is one of those rare events that does not come often, unfortunately it is planned on same Day that Harvest Jam is scheduled for. However for those not attending Harvest Jam here is alternative that we highly recommend. Come celebrate the 100th anniversary of Scouting where it all began, downtown Chicago. ScoutFEST 100 will take place on September 18th at Northerly Island. This event is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will feature a midway of Scouting activities, an urban adventure hike, and a night under the stars and the Chicago skyline which will include a spectacular stage show in the Charter One Pavilion featuring Smash Mouth, fireworks over Lake Michigan, and camping in downtown Chicago. Be sure to check back often as new components are added!

Pack 3894 Fall Campout – Apple River Canyon State Park

When & Where?The Pack 3894 Fall Campout will be held at Apple River Canyon State Park on Saturday October 9th, 2010, plan to leave Chicago @ 11 am. Apple River Canyon State Park is located in Apple River, IL ( NorthWest of Rockford) 90 miles from Chicago.

Why this location? We wanted to keep the cost low,  allow for enough campers ( most sites do not allow more 30 campers), and provide more adventure and trully get away from the city and for many of the scouts & even parent would be an experience they wont forget. Apple River Park will provide us with the following amenities:

Drive-in /Pull up Access to site


Long Hike Trails


Fishing
Dark Sky for a Star Hike
Individual Fire/Charcoal Pits
