Black River Cub Scouts Enjoy Fun Day at Camp Somers

On Saturday, May 1, the Black River District held its spring Cub Scout Family Camporee Fun Day event at Mount Allamuchy Scout Reservation, Camp Somers.

Over 400 Scouts, siblings and parents enjoyed a day of shooting sports, fishing, disability awareness, knot tying skill development and nature hikes around Frenchie Pond.  The weather was spectacular, and smiles were seen on every young face. Packs gathered at Council Point to safely end the program day performing Scout skits and songs. The fishing program offered a free week at camp to the lucky winner of an 18-inch bass caught at the Somer’s dam.

It was great to see Black River’s youngest Scouts and their families back in camp in a safe and enjoyable environment as they continue their journeys in the Scouting program.
