Maple Dell 2009

Joey and I returned this last weekend from a week-long Boy Scout camp at Maple Dell in Payson, Utah. Because Joey isn't quite 12, I had to go along and I was glad I did, even though of the five fingers that were cut during the week two of them were mine! Joey did great during the week, earning the Archery, Rifle Shooting, Wood Carving, Basketry and Environmental Science merit badges. As a result, in September Joey will earn his Star Rank and he's just two merit badges away from his Life Rank. The pictures below are various shots of the camp, the boys (there were 12 of them total) and a few of me and the Scoutmaster, Branden Plewe.
