    This summer, in addition to our regular week at an adjacent council's patrol-oriented summer camp, we did a week at a Canadian Scout camp just north of Montreal (Tamaracouta Scout Reserve). We dropped the price considerably by cooking on our own mostly, and using their dining hall for just 3 meals.

    Last summer, we went to two summer camps and had a 5-day "high adventure" canoe trip in Maine (the West Branch of the Penobscot River, and Chesuncook -- I call it "high adventure" because it is just a flatwater trip, there's not that much challenge -- but this is as remote as our Scouts have ever been).

    Our plan is to continue doing summer camp in early July and then having some kind of a special trip in August. Next summer, even though a small handful of Scouts will be going to the Jamboree, we're looking for another canoe trip for August.

      These are all great ideas guys! Keep 'em coming. By the way, what is the creepy boy scout memorial in DC?
