Boy Scout Troop 663

We always enjoy having the Scouts up at the camp. For this particular weekend Drew Prevost, who was one of the scouts, was the contact person and made all the arrangements. The day before they came we had a pretty good rain at the camp but during their stay the weather was nice. 
Five or six of the boys were here to earn their Wilderness Badge which involves them making their own shelters and providing their own food for a night. I was not able to get a picture of their shelters before it got dark as they were still in the process of completion. 
One of the instructors did build one as an example and went ahead and slept in it himself. 

They invited me over for dinner which was very good and plenty of it. 
There were demonstrations of building fires and various other things taking place during the day and I did manage to get a picture of one such time.
