Winter Camp

Our troop attended Winter Camp at Camp Pellissippi the week of December 27th through the 31st. We met at Kern UMC on Tuesday morning at 7:00AM to load the trailer and get organized. When we arrived at camp, the campsite we were assigned was too small for our troop so we had to find somewhere else to camp. We wound up at the "Old Staff Site" which is where we camped in previous years. Even with the change in location, the scouts got off to there various merit badge classes without any problems. The weather was very pleasant -- not unusually cold and not too much rain. All the scouts and adults had a good time. We got back to the church around 12:00PM on Saturday.

Several scouts from our troop help engineer and build a boat during the duct tape merit badge class (this is nnot a real merit badge, its just for fun). After the boat was finished, the camp staff teaching the class agreed to take the boat out for a test drive. I woulod like to think that our scouts were too smart to volunteer for this, but in rteality we were not setup to meet the safety rules for a scout to go in the water.
