On Sunday morning, June 14th, 18 scouts and 5 adults departed for the north Georgia mountains to spend a week at summer camp at Camp Rainey Mountain. CRM is the Northeast Georgia Council's summer camp located just outside the town of Clayton, Georgia.
Of the 18 scouts, most decided to fill their schedules with merit badge classes, but a few took part of the First Year Camper program, aptly named "The New Trail". One scout, Brandon, chose to participate in the "Gold Rush" program for older scouts. Considering the friends he made, we think he had an enjoyable week.
Taking advantage of the Memorial Day weekend, a group of 7 scouts and 6 adults headed north to Tennessee to visit and camp at Shiloh Military Park for 5 nights. We departed from the church early on Friday morning, stopping in Tupelo, Miss, for lunch en route to the campground to set up our home for the week.
