Troop 96 Weekend

Our first campers of 2014 were the great folks from Boy Scout Troop 96 and Cub Scout Pack 391 out of Epworth United Methodist Church. We've had the pleasure of hosting this group several times and always enjoy having them here.

The weekend was bright and sunny but incredibly cold, so for their first night, they "roughed" it up by (and under) the pavilion.  

As scouts joined the group on Saturday, they made their way up into the main campground.

Saturday, we were privileged to watch the bridging ceremony as boys from the Cub Scout Pack advanced up to the Boy Scout Troop.
It was a touching ceremony and we caught a bit of it to share:
Here's a closeup of the arrows he talked about and handed to the boys, too:
And a closeup of the newly-bridged Boy Scouts of Troop 96. . .

As always, we enjoyed having this group up at the camp.  They do a fabulous job of cleaning up and leaving things looking better.  We hope they make plans to visit again soon.
