Powder Horn Second Weekend!
We completed the second weekend of Powder Horn yesterday! It was a blast! Thursday we started with some bouldering and repelling! I love repelling, although we did a very short cliff. I wanted to keep going! Then we had class and practice on wilderness survival and wilderness first aid. That night we had our crew campfire which was so FUN!!! Friday we spent all morning at the lake doing canoing, kayaking and sailing. I enjoyed kayaking a lot! After lunch we had our conservation project and then we got ready for our expedition. Jace's crew canoed to their campsite. My crew backpacked. We had a great time with our crews and keeping away from scorpions, rattle snakes and whatever else was making noises on the bushes.... (I don't want to know what that was...) Our last day we had crew competitions on canoes and also on dragon boats!! That was a blast. The dragon boats were A LOT of work... At the end of the course we had our graduation ceremony which was very cool. Powder Horn was a blast!! I hope we can be staff some day!!
Here are a few pics of our summer FUN! We did a lot this summer! It went by really fast! (some days not fast enough with the kids though...)
Scout Camp 2008
Jace is the YM president in our ward. He had his scout camp from July 7-12th. He had a great time, especially doing wilderness survival. They went to Knoll Lake, about 1 1/2 hrs. NE of Payson, AZ.
I had the amazing opportunity to go to Wood Badge, which is, for the non-scouters, a 2 three day weekends leadership training for scout leaders. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. And it was a BLAST!!! I went April 17-19 and May 8-10, 2008.
