How about your Scouts? How about their parents?
This podcast features advice for Scouters attending summer camp and parents who are staying home. I’ll discuss ten things that will make life at summer camp smooth sailing for you and your Scouts, and also share some things parents can do to prepare their Scouts and themselves for the best week for the year – Summer Camp! Parents of Scouts headed to camp for the first time may find the experience more difficult than their Scouts ever will.
Camp is challenging, adventurous, full of possibility. Camp is an opportunity to let Scouts be Scouts – to let Scouts stand on their own two feet, it’s an expression of confidence, of trust in their abilities. Outside of the normal support structure, away from the solitary distractions of modernity, a Scout must cooperate with their peers in a supportive environment that permits failure without compromising safety. It’s a great privilege to be a guest of the Scouts for the week.
