Boy Scout Summer Camp '09

We're up in the foothills for summer camp '09. 21 Scouts, 7 adult leaders, and a few bugs!

We've had sloppy joes and french toast (at different meals!) and camp staff delivers s'more fixin's to our campsite last night.

Yesterday was check-in, which included the swim check in the lake. Every one of our Scouts who attempted the swim check passed and was issued his "buddy tag" which indicates water privileges. A few of our Scouts (some older & not interested, some younger & not ready) opted out of waterfront.

After dinner last night we attended a Vespers ceremony together, singing spiritual :) songs with arm & leg motions (see Tim!).

Today the Scouts are in Day 1 of their merit badge classes and rank advancement sessions. Archery, cinematography, rowing, forestry are just a few of the selections.

This afternoon our patrols will choose one area in which to spend "patrol time" together for a few hours. There will be free time and even nap time (should anyone require additional sleep!).

We love summer camp!
