We just got back from a 1 night camping trip with me and the boys and pack 541. We camped out in Tonner Canyon about 30 miles from here. The campsite is owned by the BSA (Firestone Camp).

There were about 20 kids in the pack and several hundred that were part of the Camperall.

Here are the boys at 6:15 when the bugler woke up the boy scouts.

Last weekend we went on a 2 night campout in the high desert in a town called Valyermo. The weather was warm, day and night. The campsite http://bigrockcreekcamp.com/ was a former movie star hangout during the Prohibition period and is now used as a family campsite complete with olympic size swimming pool, tennis court and other recreational activities. The 15 or so scouts and families participated in a rope walk, high altitude zip line, tomohawk throw, fishing, BB guns and hiking. Their favorite was the scary stories and smores around the campfire.
