We returned to camp Sid Richardson this year for summer camp.
Our summer camps are about having fun, earning merit badges and rank advancement.We had about 50 Scouts attend and we earned about 160 merit badges and awards.Additionally,there were 22 rank advancements during summer camp (3 Scouts earned the Scout rank, 4 Tenderfoot, 5 Second Class and another 5 First Class, 1 Scout earned Star and last but certainly not least 4 Scouts earned Life).
We also had a lot of dads that worked their tails off, so hats off to them.
On the second day of summer camp our troop was granted troop swim, where the troop got to free swim for about an hour. We played jackpot in the shallow end and sneakers in the deep end. There were about 15 of us in the pool, so it was fun.
Cell phones are not allowed at summer camp so we use the 642 Weather Rock to keep up with weather.The Original weather rock was handled by the all-powerful Dr. Krell. After the flood at El Rancho Cima, the original weather rock was left there so people would always know the weather there.So now, Mr. Krell (Dr. Krell’s son and an Eagle Scout from 642) wields the Weather Rock 2.0.With its power, it will tell you the weather at any time of the day! So, you don’t have to have Wi-Fi to know what the weather is!Mr. Krell predicted that the sun was shining for the day and, the prediction was SPOT ON! So its 100% legit!
Have you ever wanted to shoot somebody off a giant air pillow?If so, then the blob, at Sid Richardson Scout Ranch is where your mind should be!
What happens is you get somebody that weighs less than you and they jump on the blob. Then they scoot to the end of the blob and when they least expect it you pounce on the blob and they go flying!
Then it repeats! Honestly, I would rate the fun meter on this 10 out of 10.
Overall it was a great and safe Summer Camp. We can’t wait until next year.
