An 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.

Adults play games too

After taking pictures for a living for two years, some would think i would run out of pictures to take.  However, every week the scouts and staff create new moments to capture.  Toady I met leaders and scouts from Troop 346 as they worked with other leaders playing an ethics game.  The helpful discussion between the adults continued to get louder as they begin playing magic turtles.  The game consists of plates laid on the ground, they act as magic turtles to help you cross, but the adults get a limited amount of magic turtles.  The game gets really interesting from here.

Right on Target

Steven and his fellow scouts were having a blast shooting rifles at Voyageur.  Rifle shooting is not just for the scouts but the adult leaders were aiming their skills on the range.  As they shot more rounds the scouts showed off their targets to Jeremy the Voyageur range director.  Smiles all around the range, while the scouts learn responsibility, and have fun while shooting rifles. As the program came to an end the scouts begin to compare targets with each other and the adults.

Just One Day of Camp

Imagine all you can accomplish in one day, all the places you can travel, everyone you could meet.   At camp, scouts experience new activities, meet new friends and learn news things every minute.

Your Experience

I have listed the activities you can participate in and the endless lessons that can be learned at camp.  But nothing can compare to experiencing camp first- hand.  Catching the fish, screaming at the top of your lungs at an opening campfire, swimming a mile, sailing on a Sunfish and learning something new at camp…  The pictures above can give you only a preview of all that camp offers.

I urge you to find your own camp experience at Many Point Scout Camp today!!!

Campfire to Campfire!!!

There is not just one moment or event that camp is made of.  Camp starts when you enter the gates and staff greet you. From there you become a guest of Many Point Scout Camp, and the staff are here to help make your experience at camp memorable.  As staff prepare swim qualifications, give swim tests, and the scouts set up camp,  the energy of the day builds.  Then the sun sets and the staff prepare their campfire skits and songs.

At the beach

“What are you doing tonight?” one scout asks another.

Welcome to Camp!

Every Sunday during the camping season, scouts arrive at the Many Point Scout Camp Administration Building.  Here scouts meet the staff who assist leaders with check in. Scouts are able to play games and burn some energy off from the long drive to camp.  Scout also have the opportunity to interact with the Frontier staff who are from an 1800′s logging camp. The characters of William Thompson and Fred Peake, dressed in typical logging garb of the 1800′s,  inform scouts about the Frontier program they could participate in at camp.

Nothing like a Treehouse!!!

Every child at one time or another time wants a treehouse, a fort, a place just for themselves. Many Point makes this wish come true for scouts who can spend entire afternoons and evenings in a treehouse.

Campfire!

On Sunday nights, the Many Point staff prepare as scouts gather at their campfires.
