Scout Camp

This summer, Dawson attended an overnight scout camp at Bovay Scout Ranch.  Randy took him and his good friend Seth (whose Dad couldn't come because of responsibilities at work), and there were several other boys from his Pack there as well.  Randy was kind enough to take some pictures for me so I could get a glimpse of all the fun adventures of scout camp.
The report from camp was that it was extremely hot (big surprise, being that it was July in Texas), but that it was super fun!  The activities were great, there were lots of them, and the boys really enjoyed spending time together.  The favorite activities were archery, BB guns, canoeing, and the rock wall.  And the pool was a big highlight as well. 
Here are some pictures from the big week, courtesy of Randy:

Always one of Dawson's favorites - archery.

Dawson's arrows, all in a line.

Canoeing masters!  They set a record on the canoeing course and were awarded "the magical fish of Bovay" at a campfire ceremony.

2 thumbs up for the cool pool!

Best buddies!

Their group did the flag ceremony on the last day.  Here, they are lined up, waiting to begin.

Campfire!  The campfire programs were great - lots of silly songs, skits, and laughter.
