The campout was very windy with teaspoon of chilly weather. The cool thing was the webelos came to camp out with us. They were full of spirit and excitement from the start. Hatcher and Quentin did a good job of being SPL and ASPL for the first time on a camp out. A lot of parents and grandparents of the webelos and scouts came, making it fun. Also some exciting guest from Oklahoma University came to teach us about geology.
When we came to our campout on Friday it was dark and cold! In return we got a cracker barrel where we ate summer sausage, crackers, cheese, and drank koolaide. The night was windy making it hard to sleep for some people. The morning after was ok. We were getting ready for the duck tape Olympics in which we made items out of duck tape like wallets and hats. Cobra patrol won the wallet making competition and Ghost patrol won the hat making competition and the whole Olympics. After that Dr. Dave Thompson took us on a 6 mi. hike through Turner where we saw castles, caves, and water falls oh my!!! The hike was fun and exciting. We met up with a geologist from OU named Zaheb Rickins and one of his students named Jesse Bluementhol. After that Kyle taught the webelos orienteering while we rested. The views from the mountains were so beautiful.
That Saturday night we had campfire where we did skits, songs, and speeches. The Webelos taught us why we don’t drink out of cups that aren’t ours. The cobras told us what they wanted to be if they weren’t a boy scout. Brent and Hatcher taught us not to climb trees and there aren’t trees in Oklahoma more than 1000 ft. tall. Sunday morning Ian preached his sermon and we did a service project by picking up trash and cleaning grills. This was a campout no one will forget. :)
