Lunch and supper will be at the dining hall. After supper, the adults will attend an Adviser's meeting, the Crew Leader will attend a Crew Leader's meeting and the Crew Chaplin will attend a Chaplin's meeting. A chapel service is held at 7 pm for all denominations.
The Philmont Hyym was written by a Philmont camper while he camped at Cimarroncito in 1945. The first time I heard this song I thought it was a little silly, but I noticed that the senior Scouters stood at attention and some even had a tear in the eye. It made no sense to me. After campfire packs will be checked and rechecked, phone calls home will be encouraged, the Scouts may not sleep well tonite because of the excitement, or they might wonder whether they will be able to make it. THEY WILL!!!!!!
Teaser for tomorrow: Day 2 -- Base Camp to Lovers' Leap!
