Dale Tackles a Tent at Camp Schoellkopf
For my very first stay at a camp of any kind, summer camp, day camp, scout camp - I was invited to spend a day (and night) at Camp Schoellkopf in Wyoming County. I was assured we could work out some reasonable lodging rates for the night so I was in.
What a wonderful day of adventure, challenge and education. The biggest challenge came in preparing my own accommodations. They tell me it's a 3-man tent. Sure - if those three men were sardines. But they handed me a duffle bag and told me everything was inside. So I was off and running.
Directions? Who needs directions. Liz Mantel proved that when she and Jill Daniels tried to put up a tent of their own a few weeks ago. So the theory is just empty everything out and try to make sense of it. That's what I did. Check out the result.
