Scout Camp

Zach and Jeff headed to Scout Camp last Thursday morning.
Zach was SO excited this year!!
He got to spend two nights and three days there.
They pitched their own tents, and they even cooked one of their own meals!
(The rest were provided by the camp in their dining hall.)
He was also excited that his dad was going with him too. =)

There were so many activities for them to do.
He got to shoot a BB gun on his first day:

Out of 10 shots, he got 9 on the paper, and 7 of those were on the target!!
Good job Zach!!

On Thursday night, they were all stuck in the dining hall because of bad storms until almost midnight.

(Then they had to trudge out to their tents for bed...I'm glad I'M not a boy scout!) ;0)

Zach was so tired from all of the activities that day that he just fell asleep on an upside down bench:

I am so glad for cell phones.

I was able to keep in touch with Jeff so I knew how they were doing in those storms. =)
The next two days were full of more activities!

Wood whittling:

Bike riding:

Paddle boating:

A flag ceremony:

And archery:

They also had so many more activities. Jeff said their days were pretty packed!

This is Zach's scout troop with their den leader:

Each troop was in a mini camp throughout the camp with 2 or 3 other troops.

Zach's troop was in Camp Crow with these other boys:

Zach had so much fun that when he got home (all hot and tired) one of the first things he said to me was, "I want to go back!!" Jeff had fun too, he liked being able to spend time with Zach and do things they both enjoy together. And even though they were both thankful for air conditioning and soft beds, they were glad they went. =)
