Well, now it’s April. I haven’t done a post in a while, and I apologize for that. But.. on the bright side, I worked with Mukta from Design Pique Studios and remade my blog! Do you like it? Post a comment down below!

Spring Camping is something I do every year since Cubs, but I want to write about my experiences of last year. I will not talk about what we did in the camp, but more on how it was organized.

Last year, at the end of April, I had the chance to experience a self-sustained camp. What does that mean? It is when you divided into different teams (3 people in our case) and let the various groups plan what they would eat, what they would do and when they would do it.

We stayed at camp Seeonee, in tents obviously, and we all had our own site. The thing I most enjoyed about that was the fact that we had our privacy. After we set up camps, me, and the other two people staying at our campsite, lit a fire and decided to cook some hamburgers. As I am a Scout and not a Cub, we had our own stove and matches in the camp, and we prepared them for it. Later that day, we invited the others and shared a cup of hot chocolate, which proves that we could coordinate together to play something.

We also came together with the whole troop and the leaders to play games of man tracker and to canoe later in the day, which we organized before.

If you would like to make a self-contained camping trip for a fun camp, then this is a short list of questions to answer.

  • Where are you going?
  • When are you going?
  • Who are the members of your group?
  • What activities would you suggest for your whole troop to do
  • What activities does your group want to do?
  • What are you going to eat?
  • What is everyone bringing?

Or, you could give this guide to a self-contained camp to your troop/pack (one per youth) and let them do it!

Overall, I really enjoyed having this camp and it taught me leadership skills, independence skills, and friendship skills! I would suggest it to anyone who wants their troop to have a very memorable camp!

I know this was different than my usual posts, as I tried something new.
