Packing for a boy scout camp

I helped my 13 yr. old son pack for a week of camp with the scouts tonight. I checked what he put together and give him those that he skipped - like a long sleeved shirt. I lent him my pocket knife and a heavy duty flashlight. This is a chance to continue bonding with an adolescent whose natural tendency is to be independent. It is also a preview of what can happen in 4 years when he leaves for college. I realize how these last years is the last chance to be part of his life. At the end, I gave him a Rosary to use when he has some time. He showed me that he already packed one.
