Fishing

Connor and Sam were fishing near Voyageur beach when Connor started reeling a fish in.  The first catch of the day was a good one so Connor wanted to keep at it.  Just as soon as Connor cast his line another fish was ready to be caught. Connor reeled the fish in, it was a nice big sunny another great catch for the day.  The scouts and adults continued to fish as the sun began to set another sunny day at Many Point Scout Camp.  The scouts and adults traded places to see which fishing spot was the best, as well as trading fishing lures, tips and tricks.  At the end of the evening the scouts were able to learn valuable fishing skills, while having a blast fishing.

A Helping Hand

Scouts can learn a lot from staff and all the programs available at Many Point, but everyone needs help and support.  Adult leaders volunteer their time to help scouts travel to camp, assist with merit badges, support scouts during swimming tests, as well as be the scouts biggest cheerleader.  These are no small tasks, scouts and adults interact everyday at camp, but throughout the year as well.  This week I have been able to capture some great moments of adults teaching scouts, to swim, helping them with fishing knots as well as just taking the time to listen.  Everyone has a teacher, coach or adult leader that inspired them, please thank an adult for all they do.


A evening by the lake

Even during rainy days at Many Point, there is always something to look forward to.  The clouds will move and the sun will shine.  On tuesday evening I made my way down to main beach to visit with some scouts fishing.  The four scouts fishing were casting away and trying hard to catch their prize.  As Brad and his fellow scouts were fishing, other scouts were enjoying the sunfish sailboats in buckskin bay. The wind was not powerful but the scouts were enjoying their time on the lake.  As the activity at main beach continued, I assisted a scout tying a lure on his fishing line.  As the sun set the scouts begin to pack their tackle boxes and put the sail boats away, the sun and clouds created a spectacular site.
