Big Stump - Before and After
At scout camp there is a 'hike' through knee deep and sometime hip deep mud and water to 'the big stump'. Thus the name 'Big Stump' hike. The boys are told to bring clothing and shoes that will not make it back home. Besides that - I wouldn't want it back home! Most of the time they lose one or both shoes and the last thing I want in my washer is a load of that laundry.
Our troop took home the Commissioner's Award - which is for the best camp site. They are graded daily on a variety of things. This is the 2nd year in a row. There were about 500 scouts - so we are pretty proud of that. They also won the Best Gateway Award.
