49th Boy Scouts Camporee

The camporee is always held just before we leave.  It is held at the refuge on the grounds of where we are set up.  It is jointly held with Canada.

The raising of the flags ceremony.  This is a where taps is played each evening at 11:00pm (my favorite part).  I love to hear the trumpet playing in the still of the night.

This is just a small portion of what the area looked like.
There were tents placed all over the place in a very organized way, with each troop staying together.

With taps being played, it is a reminder that it won't be long for us to be heading south and calling an end to our time here.  We have mixed emotions of leaving friends here, but ready to be with family and friends back in Texas!!
