A FINAL (?) LETTER FROM CAMP

Dear readers,
Thanks for reading. We've ALL had fun this week (year?).
Merit badges and advancements were the LEAST of what we've learned.

This may or may not be the last blog entry for the week. Check again Sunday when you review it with your son. (He's not seen it yet.)

Scroll through the blog again over the last two weeks:
  • in case you missed something
  • for copying, remembering, or reminiscing
  • remember, if you have the login and password, history CAN be rewritten (Editing this blog can often be messy and we have to make corrections.)

Speaking of history, help us write the next chapters. It will be an adventure. We promise.

Nick R. (Editor)

P.S . See you tonight.
