Camp Kaleo, An RA Trip in Pictures!


The Royal Ambassadors from First Baptist Church in Fitzgerald made their way to Camp Kaleo this past weekend to test their skills against other RA's in the State of Georgia.  We had a great time and I think I will just let the pictures tell the story!

This is Reid competing in the Wild Wood Run!

Reid and some of his teammates trying to get their fire going in order to boil the can of soapy water.  It took them just over 12 minutes.

The boys are taking aim in the BB shoot competition.  Reid scored the highest score out of this group!

A big part of the weekend is the knot tying competition.  Here is Reid tying his knots in the team part of the event.  Our group finished third!

Here Reid is working on the Double bowline knot!  He got it correct!

The boys are now waiting to tie knots in the individual part of the competition.

This next video is Reid competing in the individual competition for tying the bowline knot.  He finishes second by .9 second.  Watch how close it is between him and the boy in the yellow shirt to the left of him in the shot.  Keep in mind that the other boy is in the third grade.  Reid is in the first.

The weekend was not only an opportunity to spend time with some great Dads and other RA leaders, but also a time for me to spend time with Reid on a real camping trip.  He really enjoyed all of the competitions and just being in the woods.  On the ride home from the church he said he was ready to go back to camp.  I told him that we would go back next year.  He said he wanted to go back today!

Bringing home the Gold!

I'm so proud of my grandson! Guess he's taking after the other Luckies in the shooting! Hope so anyway. I'm mostly thankful you had a great weekend together and that you all got home safely. Spending quality time with your children is the best thing a parent can do.
