Kyle's First Scout Camp

Kyle just got back from his first week long scout camp. He has earned the rank of 1st Class so far and is really liking scouts. He left last Monday morning and came home this morning. He looks pretty good and only has a few mosquito bites. The pool was out of commission, but the lake was still there. He earned his wilderness survival merit badge. I'm not sure what he had to do in the classes, but I know their final activity was to spend the night out in the woods with only a knife and a sleeping bag. There were 5 or 6 boys in Kyle's group that stayed together. The leaders made camp about a mile away just in case they needed help. Kyle hasn't really said much about the night. Of course Kyle has slept most of the day since he got back. I don't think he slept much there. Once I find out which merit badges he has earned I'll let you know. It sure was a quiet week with him gone. I'm glad he's home.
