Day 5 / 104 - Camp Powhatan
Our son just returned from a week at Camp Powhatan. It was the second time he attended a week-long camp with his Boy Scout troop about 100 miles from home.
Once again, he had a blast. If he experienced any homesickness, he didn't bother to tell us. He spent the week earning five different merit badges and playing hours of ultimate frisbee. I think he grew a couple of inches, also.
Because we homeschool, I value his character-building experience away from us at Boy Scout camp. He learns independence and builds self-confidence. He returns home with a growing sense that he is capable of more than he realized.
