Scout Camp

Scout camp was held for 4 schools last week.  The 4th, 5th and 6th graders hiked to the camp site.  The all set up tents and stowed all their belongings.  They brought camp gear and cooking gear and their bedding.  There was a course set up with about 10 activities for each group to go through.  It included walking on ropes, crawling through mud, teamwork exercises and lots of water (splashing and balloons).  The students cooked their own dinner and breakfast and we all got to sample what they made.  They did a great job and had a lot of fun.  There was a campfire at night with skits and songs.
I was very impressed with how well organized the camp was and how busy the students were kept, with some free time for just hanging out and having fun. 
The king of Thailand was in the boy scouts in America and the tradition is very strong here with weekly scout days at school and the annual camps.
Sadly, no girl scout cookies.
