My First Scout Camping Trip

The weekend of my 11th birthday, I went on my first boy scout camping trip.  We went to Canyon Camp in Stockton, IL.  It was a special Boy Scout Campout, so there were many other troops there the same weekend. I would guess there were almost 200 other people.

The theme of the camp was "Top Shot".  There was a police officer who has been on the TV Show Top Shot there doing demonstrations.  She was really cool-- and the only girl at the camp.  The best part was learning how to shoot a rifle and a shotgun.
