A Terrific Finish

The Camp has really been blessed over the past few years by visiting Boy Scout troops and their young men seeking to complete Eagle Scout projects. One of those scouts is Cody Smith of BS Troop 633.  
Cody undertook a project which we've wanted completed for a while. There's a small spring that runs across Beech Bottom Trail . . .  
It never dries up and in fact, after a good rain, can be pretty substantial! It's home to minnows and frogs (and who knows what else), so it's a sweet little spot, but it's not easy to cross on foot, at least not without getting wet!  Cody chose to engineer a foot bridge to go over the spring, and he did a great job drawing up plans, raising the funds, and working with and supervising the guys from 633 to get it installed this past weekend!

We came upon the group at their lunch break (which was the perfect time to get a group shot):
But they quickly finished up and headed back down the trail to work.
The group worked well together and it seemed like everyone had a specific job to do. We were told that they chose their troop number based on Matthew 6:33: But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. That's a group you want to have hanging around!

The finished project looks absolutely professional . . .

We are so grateful to Cody and the guys and families of BSA Troop 633 and hope they'll be back soon to enjoy their handiwork.

We hope you'll come down and enjoy their handiwork, too!
