With warm weather upon us, it only gets harder to stay indoors all day long. If you’re still deciding where you’ll spend your summer escape, we have the answer— Scout summer camp!
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.
