Back to Gilwell...

Well, we've done it again. Robert and I have just returned from another wonderful Wood Badge experience at St. Joseph's Youth Camp near Mormon Lake in Arizona. This year he served as the Course Director and I served as a Troop Guide for the week long course. For the last 4 months Robert has been working hard to make sure the course would be the best that it could be. He had a wonderful staff and everyone worked so hard to make sure that everyone had a great experience. Marilyn, our ASM over Troop Guides, was so fun to get to know and she helped us to really try hard to do our best. All the Presenters did such a great job of teaching and training everyone. I was privileged to be a Troop Guide for the Fox patrol and I loved my fellow foxes, Marilyn, Edith, David, William and Michael. They were awesome and got along so well with each other. They had the opportunity of organizing the participants campfire program and it was so fun and well done. Everybody loved it. It was such a great experience and I'm so glad that I was able to be a part of it. Fox Rocks!
