And the rains they came

Back from Scoutmastership Fundamentals and 5" of rain. The folks
came up with patrol names like Baracuda and Mud Puppy. Despite the
difficult conditions everyone involved kept a positive mental attitude
and a good sense of humor.
The staff sang the following song at the campfire Saturday night lead
by the course Scoutmaster, Don Mills.
The Rain at Camp McKee
Sung to "The Yellow Rose of Texas"
By Doug Basanta
They said that Fundamentals
Would be real good for me,
So I went home and packed my bag,
And went to Camp McKee.
As I walked up to my campsite
Scoutmaster yelled good luck.
And soon the Sun just disappeared,
The sky it opened up.
Crouched inside my pup tent,
I found that I was caught,
By a wave of oozing muck,
It was shelter that I sought.
My tent it floated nicely,
On the beautiful Lake Vough,
So things were looking rosy,
When the wind began to blow.
The weather started getting rough,
My tiny tent was tossed.
If it weren't for the skill of the counselors,
I feared I would be lost.
I tied a bowline to my waist,
And a sheet bend to a tree.
And when it ceased the rainin',
Don Mills came and rescued me.
