Pack 107 Thanksgiving Holiday Hike and Geocachat Purgatory Chasm

20181125_13125320181125_143738Today, the cubscouts of Pack 107 and their families  took some time out of their Thanksgiving holiday to go on a pack hike, and embark on a geocaching adventure at Purgatory Chasm State Reservation.

Before starting the hike, the cubscouts recited The Outdoor Code, and the Leave No Trace Principles. The cubscouts wanted to leave the hiking trail better than how they found it, so they also set out to pick up any trash they saw along the way.

The weather warmed up for a comfortable fall hike, and the rain let up so we were able to stay dry.

The cubscouts worked in pairs  using the buddy system and, each team took turns to navigate and lead the group in finding the geocache.

After all the rain we had, the waterfall at Little Purgatory was roaring, and the group enjoyed a scenic snack break near by.

At the end of the hike, the cubscouts enjoyed some bonding time at the nearby playgroup before ending the afternoon with some hot cocoa, and smores by the fire!
