Scoutmaster Musings

We leave in a couple hours for the troop's first 'WaterWorks' campout! We're offering the Fishing, Flyfishing, and Canoeing merit badges at a local Lutheran camp on a lake. They have canoes, rowboats, and paddleboats with PFDs for us to use.

We have 3 adults that have completed Safety Afloat and Safe Swim Defense and are certified in CPR. All scouts have passed the BSA Swimmer test at summer camp and the camp has a designated swimming area in the lake. So, I think we're pretty well set.

The weather forecast is 75 degrees and 10% chance of rain tomorrow so this has the potential for a practically perfect weekend. If the scouts just wake up early and get some fish for breakfast, that'll be great!

The Penguin patrol planned this campout and they have a packed agenda that should keep everyone busy for two days. It's really enjoyable to see a patrol work together to lay out a trip and get the other patrols to contribute campfire skits, stories, and songs and help with instructing skills where needed.
