Letter: The Illini Jamboree

By on September 22, 2011

On the weekend of Friday , Sept. 9 through Sunday, Sept. 11, Boy Scout Troop 41 went to Champaign, Ill. That weekend the Scouts camped on The University of Illinois campus. The scouts left Sugar Grove on Friday at 1 p.m. and hit the road. At about 4 p.m., the scouts reached Champaign. On Saturday, the Scouts walked a mile to get to Memorial Field. At 11 a.m. the Scouts watched the opening kickoff of Illinois vs. South Dakota State University.

After the fighting Illini beat the Jack Rabbits 56-3, the Scouts returned to camp to have fun with inflatable bounce houses and obstacle courses. Also, they could buy lots of good food at several food stands. On Sunday morning, the Scouts packed up and went home. For information on joining Boy Scouts, please contact Scoutmaster Dave Seraphin at (630) 466-4913.
