Mim is off to his first Cub Scout Camp adventure this week. It five nights and four days of non-stop action. He was mostly excited, but I think a small part of him was nervous too. In other words, he was a typical little boy.
He’s there with his pack, so he knows the leaders and the other boys he’s camping with. I have no doubt, that both he AND the leaders will come back with some wacky tales to be told.
It rained like Noah was about to show up yesterday and a I cringed, and prayed that my not-so-detailed-oriented little boy remembered to put the top back on his rubbermaid bucket and close his tent flaps. Alas, I guess that what’s overnight camp is all about, experiential learning. 🙂

My (unasked for) advice: just remain calm. When Annie went to Girl Scout Camp, I ended up having what was my first and only panic attack when I realized that although I could email her, she wouldn’t be able to respond back. I would have been fine if they had let the kids write back just once to say they were ok. It didn’t help that (after I had been to the ER for the panic attack) when I called, they said that Anna was fine, but could I get in touch with her buddy’s parents because she was desperately homesick and wanted to go home.
Oh Heather! How awful!! I had a moment like that in ’08. Fish drove from Las Vegas to NH with her grandparents. They are wonderful people, and I knew she’d be fine, but I cried as they left the hotel in Las Vegas.
Fish has already done 3 years of Girl Scout Camp, so everything from packing to saying goodbye is much easier with Mim & Camp.
