Summer Camp 2009

Things have finally slowed down for the summer. Thankfully! Being active in two units is a lot of work!!

This year the Scouts in the Troop decided to go to camp at Camp Alexander located at Lake George, CO. The place is stunning! Being a ‘flatlander’ it is quite a change to go to the mountains for summer camp. The temperature during the day was very mild. If it got over 70º it sure never felt like it. In fact, I wore a sweatshirt all week and I am not a cold natured person. The nighttime temperature was in the 30’s and it was 26º one night.

We had wildlife of all sorts in the camp as well. We had mule deer in our campsite on a daily basis. There was also a fox roaming camp as well as a muskrat in the lake. We also had an abundance of mini bears around. A mini bear is known as a Chipmunk to you and me. They like to go in the tents and look for food. They also had a lake stocked with trout and my son and I had a great time learning how to fly fish.

Overall it was a great experience! For some of the Scouts this was the first time they had been away from home. The boys had a great time and so did the adults.

Time to rest as the school year is starting soon and will crank up the Scouting machine for another fun-filled year!!

Remember it only takes 1 hour a week!
