This weekend, I took the boys camping at the plush new Outdoor Educational Center. This is a new $30 million, 160 acre camping facility on Irvine Ranch land. The weather was nice but a bit chilly in the 40′s and 50′s at night.
Here is Vikram in the morning.
Here is Nikhil with some of the other boys in his scouting troop.
The boys got to participate in a new high ropes course. Here is Vikram on one of the ropes activities.
First the climb up the telephone pole.
Here he is up about 30 feet tethered by a belay line.
Here is a view of the ropes course from the campsite.
No fear whatsoever!
On the first night we made smores on a open firepit (which was powered by gas). No logs to light, no mess to clean up and no danger to the environment. All of the campsites are raised and groomed making it easy to pitch the tents. The bathrooms are tiled and spotless.
This is the equivalent of the Ritz Carlton for camping! Thanks to James Irvine for creating this wonderful facility. We’ll be back soon.
