Bartle Clean Up Campout
March 24-26, 2017
We did a lot on the Bartle Clean up campout. It all started with good food at the Golden Corral in Clinton Missouri. A lot of the boys felt sick from eating too much food (including me). When we got there we had to set up our tents in the rain. Rain was a problem almost the whole time.
On Saturday we had to wake up and cook in the rain. The rain stopped so we set up an axe yard for the first years. After lunch we did a service project which was cleaning up the Eco Lodge area. Tanner McBee is a counselor at the Eco Lodge so this helped him out. When we got done with the project we got the first years and went to Ico for the peach floats. When we returned to camp, most of the boys were taking out dead tree stumps for wood for the fire.
At the Saturday night camp fire, all of the patrols did skits, including the old dogs. We also did the ceremony to the first years to welcome them to Bartle.
In the morning we packed up camp and we were on the road to go back to the church to unpack the trailer, then we headed home. This is what we did at the Bartle Clean up campout.
