April 2021 Campout - Neipsic

Posted by bvincelette on Apr 28 2021 - 1:53pm

What a great weather day on Saturday. Scouts were busy building and learning how to lash poles together, while building a signal tower.

And, a few fathers were using the most difficult method to make fire. Rubbing two sticks together.

Although not successful in lighting their fire we have video evidence of a hot ember looking for a birds nest to get the fire going.

Awesome effort all around for Scouts and Dads, which will lead to big improvements during our next attempts.

We finished up the weekend learning how to time getting out of our tents and packing up in the shortest amount of time.

Love the rain!
