Here are the pics from our AWESOME white water rafting trip down the Nantahala river with Rolling Thunder River Company (http://www.rollingthunderriverco.com/)
Send me an email if you want me to send you the files directly (I can send just your boat.)
This year we travelled to the edge of the mountains in western North Carolina to the beautiful Camp Raven Knob. We enjoyed the gorgeous views and the varied activities. All of the scouts who joined us earned many new meritbadges and rank requirements, making this troop both fun and productive.
In this campout the troop hearkened back to the middle ages and constructed catapults in an attempt to decimate each other. Besides providing great fun, catapults also served as a way to practice lashings and engineering skills. And then flying water balloons served as a way to cool off!
On this campout the scouts had the opportunity to create wilderness survival shelters. These shelters were made out of sticks and leaves. The Scouts learned these skills in order to allow them to have a better chance of surviving outside of civilization.
On this campout the troop camped on the shores of Kerr Lake, the traditional spot for the Water Weekend. This year the troop brought both canoes and kayaks. Before the boating started, a Safe Swim area was set up, so Scouts had a choice between swimming and boating.
This campout was a amazing because of its three-pronged attack. On this trip the troop got to visit Croatan National Forest, Fort Macon, and the beach. Between historical knowledge, beautiful views, and watery fun everyone in the troop enjoyed themselves! We got to learn more about the Civil War at For Macon, have fun at the beach, and enjoy walking through the Croatan National Forest, all in one campout.
