Photo Fridays: Great Moments at Summer Camp (39 photos)

To be honest, this week’s Photo Friday topic — Great Moments at Summer Camp — is a little redundant.

After all, it’s hard to find any moment at summer camp that isn’t great.

I speak from experience. I attended Camp Cherokee (now called Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp) with my troop six years in a row when I was a Scout. The location stayed the same each year, but the adventures, challenges, and excitement were fresh every time.

From the looks of the photos you sent me this week, it appears I’m not the only one who had a blast at summer camp.

That’s the concept behind this week’s edition of Photo Fridays, a feature highlighting real photos submitted by real Scouters. So far we’ve covered Cub Scout Fun, High Adventure, and Funny Moments.

Next week’s topic: “Scouters Can Have Fun, Too!” E-mail your best shots to me.

But first, enjoy these 39 photos!

  1. I think Greg Larson’s campfire photo best represents the theme. Mike Brown’s sailing photo is magazine worthy.

  2. Thanks Scouting Magazine for a chance to share our memories. That is my son Joshua on the climbing wall. Joshua has spina bifda and he has always wanted to master the climbing wall. Last year with the help of the climbing staff, equipment from the marine base, and a lot of leaders he got the chance to climb the wall. It was a dream for him. I thank everyone that was there that day to see him come out of his wheelchair and tackle that wall. It was a moment for him and his mom, (his scoutmaster also) that we will never forget! Everyone was cheering him on to the top! Scouting has made so many things possible for my son. Thank you BSA!
