      Never heard of this either. Must be those $350+ camps.

        This is a throw back to times past, and serves not good purpose in today's world.

          The camp we attend provides an 8x10 "proof" with the unit name printed on the photo. Now it's a simple print on photo paper not a professional kind of thing but nice none-the-less. We have the option to purchase additional copies. I always gave the proof to the CO who put it in a frame under our charter and our Eagle plaque. I see no harm in opting out but it's only a 10-minute stop along the check-in path and I never saw a need to disrupt the staff's process because of one unit's desires.

            Our camp takes a group picture just before the opening camp wide dinner. The troop gets a free copy upon leaving camp.
            We have them also take one with one of our cameras and one of our parents duplicates and laminates one for each scout. A nice keepsake.

              Yes our camp is around that price point.

              We had an interesting suggestion at Troop Committee, "Why don't we just arrive on Monday morning instead?"

                Same here, although I bet some of our parents would've loved it. I constantly got greif about not taking enough pictures. And when I did, I got fussed at that they didn't "look very happy." My reply of "that's because I'm making them be in a picture" did not go over very well...

                  Ours does this also. In addition, they will email you a .jpeg copy if you want to make additional prints.

                    Foster children cannot be photographed in Georgia under dfacs regs. I was asked to remove several photos from the web over this, even with private links only for the parents.
