The troop came at the same time as the Seniors, and set up camp at Site G (next to the Seniors). Everybody set up camp before the sun goes down, ate dinner, and generally just chilled. After everybody arrived, Seniors and Troop walked over to Loop 1 to help set up some structures for LD camp on Saturday.

The Boy Scouts created the flag poles for opening ceremony.  It was still difficult to see even under the light of the full moon. So, we brought in some flood lights.

We lashed long bamboo for the flag poles. We fiddled around with the bamboo to make them stand straight.

Everyone worked hard and we finished our assignments shortly before midnight. Then we returned to our campsites and went to bed promptly in anticipation for camp’s opening day.
