Intro. to Camping trip wrap up

Fun weekend on the Intro to Camping trip last weekend! It was great to see the boys working together to get camp set up and cook dinner on Friday night. Saturday was full of activities including knots and first aid requirements, and Tote N Chip for the crossover scouts. A group of boys also had a "lashing project" -- they built a huge fort around the hammock area to "protect" themselves from the wildlife. That turned into a great team effort--unfortunately they had to dismantle it on Sunday morning before we left.

Saturday night after dinner we had a night hike, followed by a campfire with songs and skits from all of the patrols (even one from the Old Goats). Between Mother's Day and an early threat of rain, we were back in Penfield by 9:30am

Thanks to all of the parents and adult leaders who joined us for the weekend. Always good seeing you all, and your help throughout the weekend was greatly appreciated.

 Some great weather for the trip
