Away with no cellphone signal

The 13 year old boy left this morning for a week of adventure including fishing, orienteering, rock climbing, wilderness survival, and canoeing at Boy Scout Camp Daniel Boone. The 7 year old girl left a few minutes ago for 3 days of adventure at Girl Scout Camp Tanasi. They are both thrilled. I wish I could be with them to see their happiness, watch them work through their fears and learning, hear their giggles, and to get some camping in myself. I know they will both have a fantastic time!

  1. I gave Ed my son’s hardback boy scout manual (with a cover) from a few years ago (I bought it for him when he received his Arrow of Light). I told him to give it to a scout who could use it but perhaps that scout may be his son, lol.

    I’m just saying, an evil atheist donated to your troop. 😉

  2. You’re comments always make me smile or laugh out loud! You know, the BSA will want to burn that book now right?

  3. Yay for Camp Tanasi! I hate that they did away with the week long camp. I heard that some parents were sending their kids ALL summer for child care. I just can’t imagine (the separation AND the cost)! Seems they could have made a rule against the number of times registering without ruining the experience for others.

  4. I didn’t realize they’d done away with the week long camp. Amy’s group is too young so they are only doing a short trip.
