Time for Camp

Tomorrow I'll be at camp with my two Scouts.  We go to Camp Tracy each year for instruction and  practice with most of the early rank skills, so there's knots, compass, safe swim, edge tools and other "book stuff," but there's also climbing, .22 shooting, archery, geocaching and team-building exercises.  The first day ends with us going home to pack for the overnighter the next day. All in all, it's three days of Scouting through the fire hose.

I was nervous about having to cancel the whole thing, because of a lack of two-deep leadership - the other 11YO leader was released, and no replacement had been called.  But, things fell into place at the last minute.
