No Scout camp would be complete without some fun activities. This camp had it in spades!
Well, maybe small tomahawks... and chainsaws...and ropes.... and fire. ...oh, and guns of course!
I mean what is a Scout camp without some ..... excitement..
Just some of the activities:
The bushes behind them were much too plain green before then.
I raced my son.
Guess who won?
Let's just say I can get tad competitive.
ok, so I let him try it out a few times before we raced.
Wonder what this is...
Chainsaw carver was awesome
Too much noise?
He carved two eagle heads.
The top two racers on the obstacle course won them.
This is one of the walking sticks he has made
more on that contraption...
It's getting there...
After the high ropes outing last fall,
I didn't venture up that one.
oh - look- it's finished!
A pioneering Ferris Wheel.
Everything held together with ropes
only metal pieces were at the centre of the wheel
A big hit with the kids.... and adults :)
Yes I was very trusting.
Besides, numerous others had already tried it.
Notice the helmets?
So you're probably wondering about the ga ga?
It's sort of like a contained dodge ball
but you can't catch the ball
Why is it called ga ga?
Because you start the game by letting the ball bounce
each time calling
I bet you knew that already.
The camp even had a small lake.
Some of Scouts fished.
Most of them used the paddleboats.
only for horseshoes
Well the kids certainly had a blast.
I know they loved the whole weekend.
Oh.... the weather?
....And I did mention there was fire?
But the bigger question remains
was there chocolate?
that's another story.
