Broke My Heart

Last weekend we had a poorly attended campout.  We had as many leaders (4) as we did boys.  We were trying to get them ready for their wilderness survival campout.  We showed them how to build shelters and then they told us they were not going to build them because they were not in "survival mode" because they were safe and sound.

I asked one of the boys about noon on Saturday what he was going to do when he got home.  He told me he was going to hide in his room.  I asked him why.  He said that his parents had told him he either had to go on the campout with us or find a friends house to spend the night out because his parents wanted time alone.

Hearing this broke my heart.
