The Service Unit (or group of local troops just north of our area) invited our Service Unit to a group camping event again this year. My Service Unit is only taking 3 troops total (way down from last year, our first year). Each leader has picked a country and is providing a challenge and some roadblocks (to take up extra time if you finish something before it's time to rotate) that relate to that country. I'm doing Scotland and going to be having them do some highland games activities like caber toss. One that I'm helping with is Tanzania... we are doing archery and the roadblocks are going to be spear throwing and stone throwing... which translates into sticks through a hulahoop (to kill a lion) and stones at tin cans (to scare away predators from their herds of animals). I know it's a long stretch, but what kid doesn't like to throw stuff! I'm also working on Sweden with an orienteering activity. I don't know what all else is being planned except that we do have swimming time which also relates to some country. I'm loving not being fully in charge of this event and having to know it all! I have 9 girls and 1 mom and 1 adult sister attending with me for my troop. Should be fun...
Only thing is, I have to quit procrastinating and actually get my country activities prepared and ready to go... Friday is fun day at school, so I will be there all day and tomorrow is my anniversary, so i'll want to spend some time with my husband after swim lessons are over for my littler son!
