A Camping Trip

Noah’s Camping Trip

Last weekend I went on a camping trip with my Boy Scout troop. We went to Highland’s Hammock, a peninsula connected to the mainland by a thin stretch of land. Highland’s Hammock is a primitive camping area meaning there is no running water or electricity. While there, we only had the clothes on our backs, sleeping bags, and matches. While there we had to build our own shelters, boil water to make it drinkable, and catch our  own food.

The activities we partook in were meant to contribute to our survival skills and  to teach new recruits what Boy Scouts was all about. While new boys were earning their fishing merit badges (After I was done instructing them.), me and the more experienced boys went on a nature hike. We experienced the surrounding area’s wildlife while building camaraderie amongst ourselves. The only problem that arose was the rain which seeped through less sturdily built shelters, and those whose shelters withstood the rain helped the occupants of those shelters. All in all, the campout was a success and a blast .IMG_0070
