Ben is a cub scout. He is in Webelos 2. In fact his den is close to getting their Arrow of Light and moving on to Boy Scouts. This is an exciting thing. Ben, however, had one thing standing in his way that might keep him from getting that Arrow of Light. He did not want to camp out. Rich had tried to take him on a few occasions. One ended in a tent full of puke. Not fun. This time Rich just told him he was going. It was nearby at a Lutheran camp. His close friend Cameron would be joining. He made it through the night! He loved it! He is excited to go again! This is a great thing! We were worried that he would be quitting scouting because he would not camp out. Yeah! I am proud of him and I am so happy that he was able to overcome this fear. I know he is proud of himself too!
(Sorry there are no pictures. Dad didn't take the camera out of the van! Boo Hoo! No pictures of the first night camping!)
