I’m heading off for a full week of camping! Our Boy Scout troop did a week of traditional camp in June. Now we’re off to Swift Base at S bar F Scout Ranch. Normally Swift offers weeks of summer camp for Venturers and Explorers, but this week our local Catholic Committee on Scouting is sponsoring a high adventure week for Boy Scouts.
Swift is located on Nims Lake, so many of the activities are on the waterfront, including water skiing, tubing, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and fishing. Our Scouts will also have the opportunity to participate in rock climbing, rappelling, ropes challenge courses, horseback riding, mountain biking, rifle shooting, and archery.
This is the third year our troop has participated in this camp at Swift and I’m really looking forward to another great week.
