Growing up in Scouts we had plenty of time to go camping, but in Tiger Cubs we did not do a lot of camping as a group. We might have gone on a couple overnights but I do not think there were many. We did use it for “Cub Weekend” at Camp Geiger our local Boy Scout camp for one night.
I remember the first tent my parents purchased for the family. It was a normal family tent. It was grey in color had windows that you could unzip and we mostly pitched it in the backyard for “camping”. I am sure my first campout ended up with everyone back in the basement before the sun came up the next morning.
That tent was a spaceship, a fort, a jail, just a tent on occasion, and so many other fantastic things the imagination of a 6 year old could dream up. To this day when I smell that musty dusty old tent smell I am instantly transported back to my parents back yard to that tent.
As the years progressed I continued to camp and use either the Troop’s tents or we had switched to smaller two or three person tents for scout outings. Without my first tent I would not have fell in love with listening to the crickets chirp on a muggy hot Missouri nights, falling asleep to the locusts (cicadas) buzzing, and telling stories around the campfire.
