Devil's Lake Campout - October 14-16, 2022

Okay it's nothing like the picture above. Also Aidan actually likes hiking. But seriously Devil's Lake Camp out is a yearly favorite of Troop 61. Towering cliffs, ancient river beds and piles of climbing boulders make Devil’s Lake a very popular hiking destination. The park has spectacular trails with names like Balanced Rock, Devil’s Doorway, Potholes, and Parfrey’s Glen. (No Aidan's were harmed in the making of this photo).

We encourage all scouts and families to attend this hiking and camping adventure.
