Summercamp Camp Freedom - Day 6, Heritage scout reservation, Farmington, PA

Day 6 (Friday)
Last night was great.  Weather was nice and chilly, but not cold.  We had a great campfire last night that kept us nice and warm.

Breakfast this morning was a sausage egg and cheese bagel.

It's finish up merit badge today, so the kids should be checking with their councilors. 

Lunch today was walking taco's

after lunch we had a few more dry hours before the rain started as a drizzle and built to a downpour during dinner.  It rained and rain for the next 2 hrs.  Needless to say closing campfire was moved to the dining hall.

we have returned to camp to find only a pillow is wet.  :)

Now the closing night of magic has started.

We will getting up early to star breakdown and hopefully leave by  9am.

Summercamp Camp Freedom - Day 4, Heritage scout reservation, Farmington, PA

Wednesday  (day 4)
Today we woke up to Reveille  and our returning Polar Bear swimmer (Blake).  He took a swim this morning at 6:15, so that means that Mr. Toranto and Nick and Blake woke up at 5:45am.  I can say I woke up also but quickly turned over an went back to sleep.
Breakfast today was waffles with toppings and bacon.  The scouts are off to a foggy morning of merit badge class.

lunch today was special recipe sloppy joe, salad and fruit salad.

a few scouts are working on inventing merit badge, so you can see the lighted hammer and spork like devise.

this afternoon was busy and dry.  All merit badges are running at full speed.  Scouts are now adjusted to the schedule so you will see more Scoutmaster rest periods :)  

some of us used our open program to improve our skills in archery.  Kiefer even outscored the program director (Jarrett) at camp.  Sorry to say Nick still did not out score me, even with his straight line of shots.

Dinner tonight was our steak cookout at our campsite.  There was lots of great stakes to go around.

Dessert was cobbler apple and cherry.  Mmmm.

we rushed down to flag lowering after cleaning up for dinner.   We then went to the OA Tapout, which was a very nice.

we are now back at camp enjoying the great weather.

Good night all.
