A Week at Scout Camp

August 13th, 2007 by Halli

If you’ve detected a slow-down in posts, you are very perceptive. I’ve just returned from a most wonderful week spent on the staff of “Akela’s Trail”, our Grand Teton Council’s adult Cub Scout leader training. I left a few posts to appear automatically, but was unable to write anything current.

But it was a week well-spent, serving with the world’s greatest (really!) Cub Scout leaders, getting to know many good people, and helping 5 camp participants learn more about this program for 7-10-yr-old boys. The weather was even great, though very warm.

My preparation for the camp was time-consuming, but every minute I spent beforehand was well worth the pay-off. Funny how helping other people works out that way.

Both the Cub Scout and Boy Scout programs are gearing up for September when they kick off for the new school year. If you serve in a Scouting program, I applaud you. If you don’t, I would urge you to volunteer. It’s a great way to give back to the community and help assure our nation’s future by training tomorrow’s leaders.

By the way, Boy Scouts of America turns the ripe old age of 100 this month.
