boy scouts at walt disney
posted by Michael Piwonka 6:34 PM
For Mason's first camping trip as a Boy Scout, the troop went to Walt Disney World in Florida from Dec. 26 through Jan. 3. And yes, they actually did camp there.
He returned tired, but extremely happy. As expected, the boys had a blast (and my hats off to the parents who went with them).
The troop has made this an annual event, using it as a "hook" to get new scouts, such as Mason, excited about the troop. Of course, the older boys also enjoy the annual trip, as their freedom to do more independent activities increases each year.
I haven't gotten involved in the BSA yet (as opposed to my activities as assistant den leader for the Cub Scouts), but I plan to get in on the fun myself.
