Camp Orr, Jasper, Arkansas - June 2002

Thirty one Scouts and ten leaders descended upon Jasper, Arkansas (specifically, Westark Area Council's Camp Orr on the Buffalo River) June 9-15, 2002 for summer camp. All had a great time, even though the near-daily rains forced the closure of the Aquatics area for most of the week (though of course this did not affect the six Scouts and two leaders on the four-day river trek).

Highlights of the week included the Scoutmasters Dutch Oven cobbler cookoff Wednesday evening (our own Dutch Oven Patrol's entry was "Chef Paul Prudhomme's World Famous Chicken Free Two Can Jambalaya Dump Cake") and the Eco-Challenge on Friday afternoon (in which two patrols participated).

Troop 505 was well-represented at the Eco Challenge. One patrol took top honors with the fastest time in the "Human Knot" competition, while the other patrol won the swimming relay and the bicycle race (becoming the only patrol in camp to win two events). Here are some images/stories/Jun2002 from our trip.

Our two best breakfasts were at the Ozark Cafe in Jasper, on Sunday (before camp officially opened) and again on Saturday (after we left)!
