Hunter, Joe, Nick, and Trey went with Mr. Baird and Mr. Williams to their campsite at the high adventure base (where they will stay for their Zip & Splash adventure). The rest of the troop was able to get settled into their campsite and realized there are cots with no mattresses (not what was promised). However, the campsite is nice with a dining fly (which is not in all campsites) and the tents are all new and larger than what we are accustomed to at summer camp. For dinner we had pot roast, mashed potatoes, green beans, a roll, and chocolate cake for dessert. Milk, water, sweet tea, and bug juice are also available to drink.

We were preparing for the opening campfire and vesper service, but a thunderstorm rolled in and it rained for several hours - cancelling both events. It rained quite a bit for many hours, but everyone made the best of it. The scouts hung out at camp and played a variety of card games, took some showers, and headed to bed. Most everyone had a good night sleep and the sound of the rushing creek near our campsite allowed us to sleep without hearing the snoring from the adult leaders!
