Cub Scout Camp

Mim with his day pack and his Blue peaking out of the pocket.

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. 🙂

Mim packing his tub.  Ready to go and  a picture of their site

  1. 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.

    1. 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.
