Boy scout camp

We dropped Dylan off Sunday at camp. We got his wood finished and it was accepted, yee-haw! He seemed to be excited...

When we were packing him up Saturday night, we put his pack on and he fell backwards. We just died laughing. Somehow he managed to hike 1 mile to his campsite with all of his equipment without falling forward or backward. He walked right up front and didn't ask anybody for help.

Unloading gear.

The pipestone wood.

His looked awesome compared to others...it seems we are now wood experts.

His group, 11 boys and 10 leaders.

Waiting for his medical interview. They interviewed all 400 boys about their medical forms (privacy policy or something).
Finally the hike to his campsite, The Prophet's Rest.

The lake has fishing, swimming, sailing, and kayaking.

The dining hall overlooks the lake. Each troop has a flag and they meet here morning and night for flag ceremonies. I guess there is a canon they shoot off every evening here also.

And here is Dylans campsite and his tent is to the left in the next picture.

We hiked back with the boys and stayed to watch the swim test (100 yards and he passed) and then we headed out. I think he will have a good time, I hope a great time with lots of stories to share when we pick him up.
