This year I accompanied Jake and his cub scout den, along with his awesome scout leader to the annual summer day camp, which spanned Friday night and all day Saturday. While it was hot and exhausting, it was a lot of fun to watch and help the boys participate in so many fun activities.
They learned how to play old school marbles, created catapults, jousted with each other and played beach volleyball.
To help cool off they also learned and participated in a fireman's water relay and to cap off the day, they got to shoot BB guns and bows and arrows. Jake was in heaven!
Jake really excelled at the BB gun shooting, so much so, that he held the high score for the entire camp! It helps that it wasn't his first time. Archery was a little bit harder for him, but he still thoroughly enjoyed it.
The theme of the camp was Knights of the Round Table and our den named ourselves the Peacekeeping Dragons. This picture just makes me smile:
Cub Scouts has been such a good experience for Jake. I can't believe he only has one more year before he moves on to BOY scouts. As if I need another reminder of how big he is getting. I feel very fortunate to be able to make such fun and enriching memories with my boy. Even if it did take the rest of the weekend laying on the couch to recuperate from it. Did I mention it was exhausting?
