Little Rock CrestU.S.S. Little Rock Camp

The Spring of 2000 brought an unusual camp to the Cubs of the 6th and 15th Burlington Packs.  The Packs got together in May for a weekend adventure which included a visit to the Welland Canal, a trip behind Niagara Falls, and an encampment aboard the U.S.S. Little Rock.  

The Little Rock is a decommissioned WWII Cruiser which now forms part of the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park.  Each Friday and Saturday night for nine weekends in the spring and nine weekends in the fall, the Naval & Military Park hosts overnight encampments aboard the Little Rock for up to 225 young people.  The scout groups are berthed abroad the USS Little Rock and served an evening meal and breakfast on the ship's mess decks.  The next day is spent touring the ship and the other attractions in the park.
