On November 23rd Boy Scout Troop 125 of Commack went to West Hills County Park for the annual Thanksgiving celebration with their troop family. During the day Troop 125 Scouts taught visiting Webelos from Packs 403, 329 and 406 scout skills like lashings, orienteering, first aid and team building activities.
Then the scouts and the Webelos went on a nature hike with a fun obstacle course in the middle.
The parents relaxed and socialized by the big fire pit.
In the late afternoon the scout patrols made deserts like dump cakes and cookies in dutch ovens. Some of the parents cooked turkey and ham in metal garbage cans and baked potatoes on a charcoal grill.
A few scout patrols made the side dishes such as corn, stuffing and gravy.
At 5pm everyone was invited into the S-shelter building and had a great Thanksgiving dinner along with the desserts the scouts made.
After dinner and dessert the scouts took out the dining tables and rearranged the chairs for the audience to watch the skits that the scouts performed. The scouts also broke down and packed up the outdoor car ports before it rained for the rest of the night. Finally, the day ended with the scouts watching a movie and sleeping over inside the shelter.
