It’s Monday and it is a beautiful day in the Adirondacks. All the scouts are in their Merit Badge sessions with lots of smiles and enthusiasm. I am sitting at our site and all the scouts are just arriving back from sessions and getting ready for lunch.

Last night was a busy one; the Scouts worked on filling in all their Merit Badge cards, had a meeting to discuss the duties and responsibilities at our site, and attended the Buckskin opening campfire with lots of jokes, skits, songs and stories from the staff. A few of the scouts are still singing the songs from last night, very fun! (ask about the ‘short neck buzzards’).

This morning 16 of our 18 Scouts got up before reveille and participated in the Polar Bear swim! As you will see from the picture below we think Davey got the best swimming buddy! (Dad is proud)

Matt S, Matt G and Sean are stepping up and doing a great job of leading the Troop.

Tonight is the Staff Hunt (ask your Scout) and our Troop will be climbing the Indoor Rock Wall.

Thank you to all the parents for letting us share in the joy of being with your sons this week.

Crystal, Tony & Mike N.
