Yosemite Camp Outing

October 15, 2011 – Scout Report

Yosemite, CA:  We met at church at 7:00 to load the trailer.  Then there was a 4-hour drive to our camp.  We made a great spaghetti dinner.  All the boys camped in their own camp while the parents and leaders were in their own, separate camp.

We had fun entertainment with skits and music around the campfire.
