The troop returned to its campsite later Saturday afternoon, where patrols were able to prepare dinner at a leisurely pace and enjoy time for fellowship while awaiting the cooler evening temperatures to arrive. On Sunday, after preparing breakfast and packing up troop gear, Chaplain’s Aide Aiden led the troop in a Sunday devotional service centered around the traps we fall in with petty fighting and quarreling, and their adverse effects on our relationships.
At the troop’s Monday Patrol Leaders Council, youth leaders praised the spirit of cooperation observed at the campout. Patrols were complimented on efficient set-up efforts, menu-planning and meal cleanup, and the overall fun everyone experienced. Youth leaders also noted the benefits of sharing the lessons learned when planning didn’t always prove successful, the need to better follow the quartermaster structure of using troop gear, and pre-campout food shopping.
The troop’s next outing will be Sept. 10-11, when it goes canoeing at a location to be determined. For more photos from this month’s campout, visit the troop’s online photo album.
