I’m heading off for three days and two nights of camping fun at Pine Ridge Scout Camp, which is located on the Little Grassy Lake in the Shawnee National Forest. I’m taking ZM and four other Webelos from his den to Webelos Mini Week Camp there. Two of the other moms are going also.
Pine Ridge is a bit of a drive for us, but the other main Mini Week option for our council is Camp May, and we know we’ll be there next year because that is the only camp option for the second year Webelos. So I want them to do a different camp this year so next year’s camp will be new and fresh to them.
Pine Ridge will be a “real” camping experience for my Webelos. We bring our own tents and cook our own food at the campsite. We’ll have some of the traditional camp activities like swimming, BB guns and archery. Plus we’ll do some work on some of the activity badges.
So I’m looking forward to a few fun days and I’ll be back later this week.
