Fall Fun Rally

Members of Venture Crew 007 attended the Fall Fun Rally on Sept. 24-26 at Beaumont Scout Ranch, southwest of St. Louis, Missouri.  Crew members camped with 1347 Venturers, Explorers, and SeaScouts from 19 states and 46 Scouting Councils. 

Activities included:  Capture the flag, Fear Factor, a climbing tower, Prussic climb, shotgun shooting, horseback riding, model rocket launch, archery, Mud Cave tours, crime scene investigating, fencing, tug of war and many other activities. 

There were several groups there with displays including: Historical Reenactors, a police helicopter, military vehicles, and a tactical response team.

Youth were also able to participate in competitions like pumpkin tossing, a texting challenge, volleyball, and Pinewood Derby.

            The favorite activity according to Crew 007… MUD CAVING!

    • I am one of the teens that went caving at Fall Fun Rally. It was really quite the experience! I have done that particular cave twice now and I never get tired of it. It is a underground cave that is about 1/2 mile long with one entrance. It has pockets in it that you can only have two people go into at one time. In these pockets there is, you guessed it, mud! This is one of the main reasons I love this cave, there is mud everywhere! It’s very slippery too. We had mud fights down there. There is, at the end of the cave, a small place where stalagmites have started to form, they are so cool! This cave is located in Camp Beaumont, a Boy Scout camp about an hour south of St. Louis.
