Wilderness - Day 3


...Most of the boys took an extra Merit Badge Class Monday night - Basketry - it was offered during their free time - so I was surprised that so many of them signed up...
...they got up this morning and got busy on their baskets - even before breakfast...

...They went to their sessions until noon - and then did their 'service project' - this year it was cleaning the latrines - Ha! - Can you tell by the look on Scout's face how much he's enjoying it...

...Then Scout met with the Chaplain - he's a Chaplain's Aide (of course) - He'll say the prayer on Thursday night...

...then a little bit of swimming fun...

...there were lots of interesting things to see in the lake - snails for one...

...the water was cool and refreshing and crystal clear...

...headed back to camp...

...a little more weaving - I'm surprised at how well the boys are doing with these baskets - they certainly are spending a lot of their free time working on them...

...then a roaring campfire before bed...

  2. Wow that camp looks really fun and organized. The facial expression is priceless! The latrine looked pretty clean. Was that a before or an after shot? That is a lake?! It looks like a pool! Great photos Teresa! You can tell they are having an awesome time.

  3. Greg's best memories are from Boy Scout camp. I'd love to basket weave. Very big in Nantucket where I used to live...I should have taken a class while I had the time!
