Our annual Cabin camping trip was held this year again at Camp Potomac in Oldtown, Maryland. We were here in December of 2013, December 2015 and December 2016. Our attendance was so good again that we filled all three cabins.  

The Dragon and Minotaur patrols headed off to the small cabin, the Gray Wolf and Phoenix patrols stayed in the large cabin with a few leaders, and most of the leaders slept in the dining hall. 

After breakfast Pack 46 (4 Webelos and 2 Leaders) and Pack 10 (6 Scouts and 3 Leaders) arrived to join us. We worked on some advancement requirements throughout the day and took a nature hike around the camp. The older Scouts did a good job of teaching the visiting Webelos Scouts fire building, lashing, and knots. The temperature was in the low 30's during the day and the mid 20's during the evening. Our Saturday evening feast consisted of turkey, ham, stuffing, green beans, corn, apple sauce and pie.  In the  morning we woke to a few snow flurries. Following clean-up of the cabins and the dining hall and a short devotional service on Sunday we headed back to Stephenson, Virginia.
