2012 Camp Somers – Tuesday

image

One of the very best features of the camp is the beautiful waterfront. The aquatic program is excellent … canoeing, kayaking, rowing, swimming, and lifesaving are offered to our scouts.

Interestingly, the lake featured prominently in our troop’s life today as Alex T. caught a two-pound bass. I have photos of it swimming in the aquarium at the Eco Lodge and thankfully this particular fish was not the subject of this evening’s fish fry (this is scouting…of course we learn to eat what we catch).

Elsewhere there were various leaders meetings and some scouts completed merit badges.

We had visitors to camp today! Mr. W and his son Isaac joined us after breakfast. They were able to complete a merit badge while they were here (fingerprinting), and they got a great tour of the camp.

Much more to share, but it has been an incredibly busy day.

I’m writing this from my cot as I listen to the crickets and frogs chirp and groan. Its a far different lullaby than most people are accustomed to…and i’ve yet to add my own snoring to the mix!

Signing off from campsite Tomahawk…
