Weekend Campout

This Saturday, Luke and I attended the Webelos-o-Ree at Camp Snyder in Haymarket, Virginia. This is the same camp that Eddie and I attended last year, a well-run camp done by various Boy Scout troops in the Goose Creek district. The boys learned about first aid (which we call Readyman in Webelos), Outdoorsman (including survival skills, camp fires, and knot tying), BB shooting, and of course, the requisite Boy Scout skits at the evening campfire.

We had a great weekend, though I'm particularly looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight, having had quite enough of roughing it for the weekend!

Here are some of my favorite photos from the weekend. Warning on the last photo: Boys will be boys, and left to run the first aid station on their own, some of the older fellows really ramp up the fake gore.
