Summer Camp 2000 - Buffalo Trails Scout Ranch

by Alan W., Historian

It was a long hot week at Buffalo Trail. On the first day the Scouts set up camp. They did their swim test and most of them passed. The next day they started classes and did free swim, free shoot, and free ride. The food was great. The Scouts also participated in a chapel service and the big OA tap out. John P., Jimmy M., Joseph K., Andrew F., Andy L., Bryan S., and Mr. Duffy all were tapped out. The Scouts packed up and went home the next day.
