Another summer has passed and the boys at our troop have put another summer camp under their belts. Camp Rainy Mountain is located in northern Georgia and was the destination of our scouts.
This year there was a change to the usual arrangement of reaching a summer camp which used to be an entire day on a train straight there. The scouts took a bus to the summer camp and ended up staying a night in Atlanta. While there they visited the Coca Cola Museum where, that’s right, they tried a variety of different brands of coke and when they left they each received a souvenir glass coke bottle. After leaving the museum the scouts arrived at a large camp nestled within the mountains containing a very large lake.
There were many merit badge classes available at Rainy Mountain but the class they were renown for were their water activities. To put that lake to good use Rainy Mountain has merit badge classes for excellent fishing, sailing, canoeing, and swimming. The merit badge counselors there have been reported to have been great at executing classes and getting along with the scouts.
A special shout out to the scouts of the Falcon Patrol who participated in the Gold Rush High Adventure activity. The Gold Rush is an activity where the scouts stay the week in a separate part of camp doing their merit badges but had to reenact a year in the 1800’s while doing so. Some of these reenactments resulted in the scouts learning how to blacksmith and other interesting activities. Congratulations Falcons!
Thank you Christine Boldt for organizing this event.
