On last year's skiing campout, we were asked by the authors of Scout Life (formerly called Boy's Life) to interview a few of our attending scouts on their skiing experience as well as provide some pictures. Owen, Trey, Patrick, and Lucas were the ones selected for the interview. After long last, the newest article of scout life has a 3 page skiing article - with us in it!
The article we were in is linked in the file below, check it out!!
We had a ton of fun at monster mash this year, the first time in a long time having it not rain. Having no cub scouts around, we just did things at camp for the most part to pass the time. This would mostly consist of chopping wood, playing capture the flag, building a giant flagpole, doing some requirements, and a whole lot of chatter. For the scare trail, we got into our costumes and ran the mansion and car on both nights. Mr. Carmona now counts running the scare trial as service hours; So if you need service hours (First Class and below) this an easy and fun way to get 4+ service hours in one campout. Overall a very low-key and fun campout! We hope to see you guys at our next one. (More photos are in the gallery)
