Greetings From Camp Buck Toms, Last night was a hot and humid night, making it hard to get a good nights sleep. Today was no different, even sitting in the shade was enough to make you sweat. Thankfully there was an occasional breeze throughout the day that made things seem not so bad.
Hey There Summer Camper Families. Wednesday, the middle of the week, and also what feels like the longest slowest day of the week. Normally by this time of the week our scouts have settled into their routines. They know their way to their class, and to and from the dining hall and our camp site. There is also an air of tiredness that starts to hang over things, scouts are a little quieter, there are fewer out playing GaGa ball until they cant see.
Greetings from Camp Buck Toms. Today was filled with activity, for our scouts anyway. Our youngest scout spent the day learning knots and lashings. He also found some time to go fishing at the lake with some of his new friends. Of course his evening was filled with GaGa ball, he played until the staff took the ball because it was getting too dark. Given the chance I have no doubt that they all would have played well into the night.
Today was the first real day of summer camp. We all got up fairly early and had to make our way to the parade field for opening flags. You wouldnt think that it would be hot at 8am, but its was. Though maybe humid is a better descriptor. Todays activities had the boys doing different things. Our older scouts headed off to the Mountain Man program, with todays activity being mountain biking.
Im sitting here in the dark listening to the rain fall on the trees and tin roof of the the Adirondack. There is a slight breeze coming off the lake, the camp is quiet. That is not to say today has been a quiet day. Like most summer camp travel days, today started before the sun was up. At 3am, we roused the boys and loaded into the van. We made a quick stop at Wawa to top off the gas tank and to get some subs for lunch, and we were off.
