Snow Fun
When we arrived at our winter camping destination, I was sure we'd have quite a disappointing time. With only 3 inches of snow, my hope was to get one snow hut made, and maybe 2 if we were lucky.
Well, the scouts wound up scraping snow together for 5 huts - enough for 10 scouts to all spend the night in their own 2-man ice castles!
The day was cloudless as was the evening, so a bunch of scouts completed their requirement of telling direction in day and night without a compass. The only disappointment of the trip was having clouds this morning at 7:00am and not getting to see the Space Station fly over.

And, if any parents of scouts in your troop are concerned with snow caving in on their son, here's one of the huts with 9 scouts on top.
