I think you and your troop should get a pat on the back for this. My troop does not take recent transfers or crossovers to summer camp for this reason. We like to get them used to camping in tents away from their family support throughout the year. Once a scout gets used to weekends away from home the week of summer camp is not so bad. I also use costco chocolate chip cookies when scouts have melt downs. I give the scout a cookie and sit then down next to the fire pit. By the time they finish with the cookie the world seems like a better place and they calm down.
