The first day is about administrative details. Making sure we have the correct paperwork and that the boys get a medical recheck. What it really is, is a lesson of hurry up and wait. Rules are continually repeated and you move from one line to the next.
I am very proud of the boys of the Troop. As other troops occupied their time by picking on each other, our boys went through the litany of camp songs they know. Holling was impressed and I think that encouraged more singing.
The hurry up and wait was punctuated by lighting so the swim checks have to wait until Monday morning at 6:30 am.
