More than 100 Scouts, leaders and parents gathered in the field behind the Abingdon Ruritan Club in Bena this past weekend for the Historic Triangle District Fall Camporee.
The event was facilitated by Scout Troop 133 sponsored by Groves Memorial Presbyterian Church. Scout units from Gloucester, Williamsburg, Poquoson, Seaford and one scout from Camp Lejeune, N.C., participated.
Scouts could take part in a number of shooting sports with ranges for BB guns, archery and slingshots with dogfood for pellets. There were also demonstrations of cooking, first aid and pioneering with the construction of a rope bridge.
Cub Scouts held a rain gutter regatta, spoon catapult competitions and constructed cardboard castles. Activities were concluded with a camp fire and flag-retirement ceremony Saturday night.
