Cub Scout Camping

October 5, 2014

Michael joined Cub Scouts this past August and has been so delighted by every experience. They’ve had several den meetings and one pack meeting. He’s sold popcorn outside Kroger, earned his Whittling Chip, purchased his uniform, and anticipated this weekend immensely.

It’s time to go camping!!!! Papa had originally planned to join them for this weekend, but his back had other plans. Instead, Papa spent the weekend warm, in a bed, and with a good dose of Tylenol and muscle ointment.

Nate & Michael drove almost two hours north of us to the Blue Ridge Mountains. They were actually the first to arrive at camp by about 40 minutes or so. Temperatures were about 20 degrees cooler there than our house. Needless to say, it was a cold weekend hovering around 50/60F daytime and 40s overnight.

He’s made some great friends and they were able to meet more from the parish on this family weekend.

Michael was so excited to have gotten his Whittling Chip which gave him access to the roped off whittling circle at camp. He removed the bark from this stick with his boy scout knife. He looks a little cold in this picture though and missing the glove that later surfaced inside his overnight bag. Later as in when mom did laundry after they walked in the door.

They survived the second overnight with 30 degree temperatures and were ready to pack up camp and head home.

Stories are still unfolding from the weekend, but suffice to say there wasn’t anything that Michael didn’t love. Nate was even able to help the den earn an unexpected Ultimate Frisbee belt loop. Way to go throwing in that Frisbee at the last minute!!
