We have had a really good time in this majestic setting.
Including the cookout we had at the campsite which included silver turtles or hobo dinners cooked on hot coals.
Dutch oven peach cobbler.
As well as quesadillas with chips and salsa.
Oh did I forget to mention ice cream. Well it was filling and delicious.
Packing up now. We miss you all and will see you Saturday evening hopefully between 6 and 7 pm. YIS, Mr. Forbes ASM Troop 854
The first year scouts are almost done with TNT training. That's short for "The New Trail." And they are pretty happy to boot.
All the scouts are "on target" for their merit badges.
Today marked free range Thursday. The scouts chose strategic ways to spend their time, from cross hairs to check mate.
Everyone should be proud. We were awarded first place in the campsite inspections. Go 854!!! One more day of beautiful Camp Rainey Mountain then we will be on our way back. See ya soon.

Happy Birthday America! What a great way to celebrate Independence Day here on beautiful Rainey Mountain.
Once again living up to it’s name the rain came but the did not deter these young men from merit badges and fun.
And we leave you with some of those thing that make this the land that we love.
See you soon.

Literally it was raining on Monday at Rainey Mountain Scout Camp, on and off, all day. But that did little to dampen the spirits of the scouts from 854
No matter the weather there is always something to do. From morning until afternoon scouts were busy with their Merritt badge classes. From theater to leather works.
The fun can be found on land and in the water of this gorgeous setting.
The ability to communicate through wifi and/or cellular is extremely limited and tickled at best, which is a blessing a curse.
Anyway we are hard at work and play and will keep you updated as beat as possible.
Internet and cellular data access at the camp are really weak, if available at all. Please be patient, as it will be difficult to get out timely updates. Trips into town are required to get an adequate signal to send updates. But please do check back.
