As our youngest son took part in high adventure in Scouting, portaging and canoeing 60+ miles across the upper Great Lakes and Canada, I can tell you they will come back changed.
Our son said he met a moose up close and personal, once was enough for him.
Glory to God that these young boys have this opportunity. May it be a true blessing for them and their leaders. Keep the parents at peace, as the boys last thoughts right now are of home. They are just trying to get through it all and take it all in, enjoying every moment of this momumental adventure. God bless them!
