This month, we went to Kent Park.  Kent Park is a few miles out of Iowa City.  Over the years, Kent Park has been a traditional campout.  This campout was primitive sports campout.  On Friday night, the stag patrol came out early.  We had a magnificant poker game and had a nice relaxing night before the whole troop came the next morning.  When the troop arrived, scouts had the chace to make fire with nothing but wood and a bow.  The troop was also taught to make arrowheads and atalatals.  Targets were set up, and scouts took turns shooting arrows.  This was one of our best campouts and the scouts are eager to go back.
