Staff is currently progressing through their extensive repertoire of songs while serving Scouts, Scouters, and guests for parents night. With a 50-60% chance of rain this evening, we're hoping it will hold off so that we can get the dining hall cleaned up in short order rather than needing to host the closing campfire indoors. Overall, a normal opening week of camp.

Greetings from the dining hall. It's Week 1 of Boy Scout camp, for which we have 77 tables set in the building, and we cook for an additional 2 tables for kitchen and ranger staff plus 5 more for Easter Seals. Thus, we prepare for 84 x 8 = 672. Being short one cook in the afternoon/evening and short one in the dishroom, we work a lot longer and harder to meet the needs of camp....but we still eat well, joke heartily with each other, and get about 5 hours of sleep on a good night. No complaints so far, but if you see a flare on the horizon, send help.
