Camping trip story

Posted on Jun 26 2023 - 3:33pm

During the last camping trip Hannah completed the First Class requirement of building a camp gadget.

She built a dish washing rack with wooden staves and joined the pieces with knots and lashings. Many patrols used it. It was a great project, and it will be fun to continue doing this in upcoming camping trips.

Here are the instructions and a picture of Hannah’s completed camp gadget.
