First Day of Summer Camp

Hello,

 

We had an amazing ride to camp. We were able to watch two movies on the way down. Once we arrived to camp, we got all our medical forms straightened out. We then took a tour of the camp. It is an amazing camp with a pool and a lake! Everyone that didn’t do a swim test prior to camp was able to complete one. Once we ate dinner, we went to the opening campfire. They had a bunch of funny skits prepared for us.

 

So far the food is ok.  We’re told it will get better and are looking forward to a hot breakfast in the morning.

 

So far no has been hurt.  We haven’t even had a sprained ankle.

Antietam outing historian report

We had a great time at the Antietam outing. We gathered at St Francis at 6:30 am and hit the road by 7:30. It only took us
about an hour and a half to get to the campground on the edge of the battlefield because it is pretty close to Great Falls. We set up camp and by 10 am or so we were ready to start the main activity of the outing.
