Rafting Trip and The Summer Extravaganza! (by Ben Hunt)

Hey Everyone,

I know it has been a few weeks since the rafting trip but I wanted to tell you guys what a blast my patrol and I had! On Friday, June 3rd, a small group of scouts and adults traveled to the Lower Youghiogheny River in Pennsylvania to brave the class three and four rapids. From the long ride up to being swept into the strong current the fun seemed to never stop! I cant speak for others, but the highlight of the trip for me was when one of the final rapids flipped our raft up onto its side. As I climbed to the top of the raft to prevent it from flipping, I watched my whole group topple over each other into the water! I encourage all scouts to come to any future trips we have on the water. They are a blast and you will not be disappointed!

This past Monday I had a wonderful time at the Summer Extravaganza and I hope you did too! All scouts enjoyed a nice Chipotle meal (Thanks to Beau Lawalt) and a huge game of Capture the Flag. Sadly, we were not able to play a movie during dinner, but that didn't stop us from having a great time!

I hope you all have a great time at Summer Camp next week and a nice long break from school! 


See you in September,


Benjamin Hunt
