Pack 149 from Watkinsville, Ga. just returned from its Fall Great
Adventure trip that we have each fall. This year we took 100 cub
scouts and parents to Cumberland Island, Ga. for the day. It was a
great experience for the Pack. The only cost for the day was the
ferry expense of approx $10.00 per person. Each family provided their
own transportation and lodging. We were able to tour the island at each
family's leisure. The pack saw ruins of a old mansion, revolutionary
war graves ( Lighthorse Lee's grave), wild horses, other animals,
fantastic beaches with plently of shells. Each family brought their
own lunch and had the choice to enjoy it at their own pace. We even
had some of our den chiefs go swimming in the ocean. If you Pack is
within driving range of St Mary's, Georgia I would highly recommend
this as a Pack adventure. The island also has campsites available.
But you must be able to carry your gear on the ferry. At the dock
they do have carts to carry your gear to the campsite. Their are no
stores on the island so everything must be carried with you.
