Highland Games 2024

Highland Games started with a bit of an adventure as we received a call while on our way to the ferry that our ferry was cancelled, and the new plan was to take an earlier ferry. We made haste and made it on the earlier ferry except one group of scouts who took the later ferry.

Since we arrived early to Nantucket, we had bonus time for a visit to the Whaling Museum. Then we hiked to Camp Richards and setup our tents. We cooked spaghetti dinner.

We had clear and cool weather for the games on Saturday. Our clan (troop) didn’t win any awards but enjoyed the events including golf, harpoon toss, tug-of-war and sheaf toss. We finished all the events early and then had time to walk to the beach where scouts made sandcastles. We also saw whales close to shore! Back at camp, we played football. For dinner, the camp had a delicious bbq. Then there was a bonfire and campfire program.
