Harrison's First Cub Scout Day Camp

Fire hose basketball?

 I have enjoyed going to day camp with Porter and Morgan and this year was Harrison's first time. The weather was perfect. I stayed with Harris from 8:00 to 3:00, then stayed with Morgan til 5:00. I appreciate all the volunteers. It was a blast!

This year's theme was "Superheroes".
This trailer is designed to teach about how to handle a house fire. It filled with "smoke" so we went into the other room. We touched the door to feel the heat from the fire on the other side.

Then we escaped through the window. Well, the adults escaped through the door rather than risk an embarrassing entrapment.

Making rocks into superheroes.

The obstacle course is one of the favorites.

Keeping that hat on while under the net was a heroic deal.

Getting some instruction.

He's got it down now.

One of the two southpaws in the group.

Learning how to properly fold a flag.

I loved this problem-solving activity.

Work together so that the ball goes through the tubes faster than the other team.

This team got it every time.

This was a suggestion by one of the leaders.

Discussing the whys and hows.

Making glow-in-the-dark slime.

This stage was really disgusting.

Already experienced with a BB gun.

Officer Puttnam made a reenactment of an actual crime scene from a decade ago. Most parents thought this was too graphic. I thought it was another good problem-solving opportunity.

This kid added a lot of fun to the day.


Morgan and his very good friend from our neighborhood.

He was very fast at the routine of safety on, open/close the chamber, pump the air, safety off, and shoot.

This is one of Morgan's favorites.

He's never owned a real bow yet.

Obstacle course nightmare.

Morgan got the second fastest time on this challenge.

Such great boys.
