Below are pictures from Troop and Pack 1611’s Winter Camp up at Camp James Ray on Lake Texoma. After weeks of preparation, there was one thing we couldn’t prepare for: the worst weather in North Texas in years. Ice, snow, and temperatures in the teens. The weather also kept about half of our guys from being able to attend. Nevertheless, we stayed through Friday until a fresh snowstorm forced us to head back home. We did have a great time and the boys had a rare experience of camping in the snow (at least, rare for Texans). We were all extremely proud of Mack and Josh, who completed their wilderness survival patch by building their own shelter away from the camp and sleeping there overnight. Considering that the temperature got down to around 15 degrees and their shelter was covered with fresh snow in the morning, this was quite a feat of endurance. Way to go, guys!
