On this camp out, we first got there and set up, than had a fire and talked around it for hours. One of the scouts brought a packet where when you throw it in a fire, the fire changes colors, so that was really cool to watch, because the fire turned green, blue, purple, and pink. Eventually, we gradually went to bed.
The next morning, we made and ate breakfast, and went to our service project, which was clearing brambles of thorns from the side of a trail. Other scout troops had done a bit before that, but with hard work and lots and lots of pricks and scratches, we doubled what was done. A lot of what we did at first was clearing away thing that were left from previous clean-ups, but once those were gone, we started on the bigger bushels. This project lasted 3 hours, but it was worth it.
After the project, we had a well deserved lunch, and started working on pioneering merit badge. we learned how to splice rope, we learned the best way to throw rope, and than a few scouts tied a wall thing used for building structures. After we did a bit of pioneering, we reviewed caries for injured people, a few scouts volunteering to be the “injured scout”. Soon afterwards, we had dinner, and a few family members came, because that evening, we were having a Court of Honor.
At the court of honor, we had a few scouts advance in rank, a few others achieve merit badges, and we all had a good time. After the awards ceremony, the patrols performed a few skits they had prepared for us. We all had fun, and warmed up at the fire. A few scouts left that night though.
The next morning, we made breakfast, one of the scouts lead a religious service called vespers, and we packed up and went home.
