This year’s March campout was extremely windy as there was a storm passing overhead and we just barely escaped the rain. We could not have our usual bonfire because of how windy it was for there was a great risk of it spreading. It was very cold early in the evening and also just as cold in the morning which left lots of us shivering because we were not properly dressed for the unexpected change in temperature.
The First Class Emphasis (FCE) Scouts were tasked with a 5 mile hike. This left many patrols without much assistance for a few hours. And for a couple of scouts, this was their first campout. They survived their first experience and had a good time learning some of the fundamental skills of Scouting.
Many scouts also passed their Board of Review, and ranked up. Their hard work paid off.
