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.
When we are younger we learn many lessons, some we take for granted, for others it takes a little time before we realize what we learned. At Many Point lessons are learned through merit badges, troop activities, at campfires, cooking meals, or even while you eating meals. The lessons learned can be working with others, how to cook a meal well, or learning to ask for help. As small as some of these lessons may seem now, scouts will realize when they are older that they were necessary. Even adults learn new lessons at camp, a person never stops learning. The moments that we are with our troops we should be aware that you cannot learn everything at once but you can learn from your experiences now. Take the opportunity to learn something new this week, who knows you may use it when you are older.
