Over the river and through the woods

I recently made it to camp to get some things out of the dining hall for the rangers. There was not as much snow around the buildings as I thought there would be, but on the road to camp, even after several days of warmer weather and a bit of rain, some of the drifts were as tall as the van. The drifts were melting down some and now more snow. It has been snowing lightly without much wind for over 2 days now and we are nearly as deep as we were. I am hoping for a slow thaw, we don't need people in flood water in 40 or below temperature. Clifford and I celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary in January. Spring must be on the way because the deer are moving around....

Happy 100th birthday, Boy Scouts of America

The Boy Scouts of America was incorporated on February 8, 1910 and chartered by Congress in 1916. Its purpose is to provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness. We at Camp Cedars are proud to be a part of this tradition and excited to contribute to the next century of Scouting.

According to the national office, as of December 31, 2009, there were 2.9 million youth and 1.1 million adults active in the program through 124,425 units.
