Keep reading for five convincing reasons why you should spend a week at a Scout summer camp from Bryan on Scouting, then head to his blog for the full list!

 

1. You’re at a place where songs and skits are encouraged.

“We break into chants, songs and skits at camp. Never have I seen this at the office!”

– Kris H.

 

2. You get to unplug for a week.

“No Internet, no Wi-Fi, minimal cell service. Disconnected from the real world. Just Scouting in the woods.”

– Tad M.

 

3. You make lifelong memories.

“It is the one week each year that my boys (currently a Bear and a Wolf) talk about — nonstop — for the other 51 weeks! We make memories and have experiences that last a lifetime.”

– Crystal B.

 

4. You see young people become leaders.

“Just to see the Scouts take charge of themselves is the most wonderful experience one can have.”

– Clara S.

 

5. You learn something new.

” I always learn something new, and it’s so much fun seeing the growth and sense of accomplishment the boys have! The fact that its a week out of the office is a bonus!”

– Barbara P.
