A week of Scout camp, fun fun fun!!

Last week we had Cubscout camp at Five Lakes, MAN did the kids have fun!! All of my children go, and I volunteer. We had a great number of our Scouts as well as their parents there, it was awesome! My computer is down, so updating my blog is few and far between, but I'm stealing a few minutes on Jamie's computer to do this one.

The only problem all week was the heat, MAN was it hot. The heat index was over 100 each day we were there. The kids get to stay in the water alot, so that helps them stay cooled off.
Sarah swam the shark tooth challenge, a 300ft swim across the big pond, and earned a sharks tooth. Sarah and Gabe both earned their Jr Shooting badges!! They all learned wonderful things, and I can't talk enough about the wonderful job that the staff did on camp!!
Just thought I'd share some photos of the kiddos having fun!

On Friday, the little ones are allowed to go down to the beach, Abi even got to ride in a canoe. Here's a photo of her enjoying the water:

Gabe's absolute favorite thing to do, zipline!! I am so proud of him, last year, he struggled to get his beginning swimmer band, this year, at swim test he swam "swimmer" which is the highest of the three classifications, so he got to enjoy all of the water sports fully.



At flagpole in the afternoon, my favorite scout




This photo wins funniest of the week for me, our friend and Den Leader Drew and his son Brandon show me their muscles after doing the zipline



And this face tells it all about how Gabe feels about Scouting!!! He adores scouting.

With 100 degrees I think I would have spent the entire week in the water! Great pictures and looks like the kids really enjoyed themselves.
