Free Time at Camp Tesomas

There are several hours of free time built into the day here at camp.  Scouts always find plenty to do.  From organized special activities to hanging out at the Trading Post, playing cards, gaga ball, nuke ’em, and more!

 

The adults also find plenty to do – including a stellar performance at the Monday night challenge.  Stay tuned for official results – although if you count the extra bumps and stiff joints, we are definitely the winners!

Old Goats celebrate a great performance at Tuesday evening's challenge.
