                    As a kid and 7 years of camp staff, we went to Camp Rota-Kiwan in Kalamazoo, MI every year. How could we not? Our Scoutmaster was Mr. B. who was their nature director for over 40 years. It was near town and as a staff member and OA rep, I used to ride my bike home when I didn't like lunch. What a world!

                    As an assistant camp director (D.E.) I served the Lake Huron Area Council's Camp Rotary in 1989 and Paul Bunyan Scout Reservation in 1990-1992. I met my wife who was also on staff at PBSR in 1990. We're still together.

                    Now I'm assistant scout executive and oversee Camp R.S. Lyle in northern Wisconsin. We're currently working on our 40th reunion. Any past staff members out there? I'd love to hear from you.

                    And three cheers for Mr. B!

                      Remember your memories, cause it ain't the camp it use to be. Or maybe it is! Part of it may have been that they do not like out of staters at "their" camp. Never meet such a crabby bunch of staffers before.

                        Camp Slippery Falls in Oklahoma
                        Camp Arrowhead in Missouri
                        Camp Pioneer in Arkansas
                        Camp Alexander in Colorado
                        Camp Frank Rand in New Mexico

                        We learn a lot about Camp Spanish Peaks in Colorado while using it for a backpacking base camp. A Kansas Council owns that one.

                        Our Troop is going to Camp Hale in Oklahoma this year while I'm at Philmont.

                          As a scout I went to Camp Pa He Tsi on the Lake of the Ozaarks in Missouri. This was actually an army facility that the army gave to the State of Missouri after WWII and the state rented out to various non profits. Three years as a camper and four years on staff in the 50's. The camp was used by what was then the Lake of the Ozarks Council and the Great Rivers Council. I know the Great Rivers Council still exists. During my last year in scouting there, the Great Rivers Council acquired some rural property North of Moberly, MO for its own camp which became Camp Thunderbird.

                          As an adult I have been to Camp Three Falls (Ventura County Council), Camp Pitchess (greater Los Angeles council), another camp operated by the LA council whose name I forget, Camp Royaneh operated by the Greater San Francisco area council, and Camps Wolfboro, Silverado, Herms, and Lindblad operated by the Mount Diablo Silverado Council. Oh yes, Philmont twice.
