Camp Yawgoog

Alex and I spent last week up in Rhode Island at a Boy Scout Camp called Camp Yawgoog. It was a great experience for the both of us. Alex got to work on some Merit Badges for Scouts and he got to enjoy the outdoors with his friends. The camp was really amazing, each scout troop had their own camp site with either tents or lean-to’s or a combination of both. The boys were assigned daily chores and responsibilities. For example one day Alex was in charge of cleaning the latrines for our troop. Another day he was the waiter at the table in the mess hall. The Merit Badges he worked on were, Environmental Science, Rifle Shooting, Small Boat Sailing and Fishing. Each day he had a to attend a class session for each badge and in some cases he actually had homework to do back at camp. One day he and I got to take a sailing dinghy out on the water to do some sailing. We both had a great time and can’t wait to get the chance to go back next year.
