Rodney: Day 1
Ah, camp. A week of fun, IMO, with all the activities and outdoors; camping, sailing, archery, shooting, climbing, swimming, astronomy, campfire, skits, the trading post. One of my favorite parts of my summer.
So, last week, I went to Boy Scout Camp Rodney, located on the Chesepeak Bay on the East Coast (of the USA). They have an awsome sailing program I took part in, and overall I had a great time. Over the next week, I'll be posting about what I did on that corresponding day.
I got up around 2:00. My troop went to our campsite (Beachcomber/Cheekakoo) and changed into our bathing suits. The reason of this was that we had to take a swim test. Before the swim test, we got a short talk about how important it is to drink water, check for ticks, and shower. We also had a short medical exam, just asking if we are healthy and if there was anything they needed to know, such as medications.
After the swim test, we got back to camp, chenged into our uniform, and stuck around for dinner, because our camp was right next to the mail feild with the flagpole. Dinner at Rodney on Sunday night is barbequed chicken, with accessories, in that feild. After dinner, we waited around for campfire.
Campfire included 2 fires, and then skits and songs from the camp staff. We started it with the Rodney Song, and then some skits.
A favorite skit was this:
Two friars are on stage. But these are evil friars! [you see friar be mean]. And worst of all, they are evil flourists. They had an evil plant. [person shows up, but a sleeping bag over him] They gave this plant acid rain, and instead of sunlight and rainbows, they gave it Painbows! And they fed it scouts. [you see scout pass by and it eats it, plant grows]
But one day, the camp master got worried, and sent out two brave scouts to find out about the missing, and now dead, scouts. We have Fred, and Hugh. They flip a coin to find out who will play the hero today. Fred wins, but he has other plans that night, so Hugh gets to play the hero! [Hugh puts on here cape and mask] He goes over to plant, yelling at it, depriving it of water and painbows. Then he pushes over plant! Saved! But then comes the evil flourist friars. Hugh defeats them too! Camp is saved.
The moral of the story is this:
Only Hugh can stop flourist firars!
And so ended day one of camp. Info about monday, coming on monday!
