    • I ❤️ Woodruff Scout Reservation so much!  ******** One of these days I'd like to do the Okpik camp at Northern Tier...Also, I ran across this while researching winter camping schools: http://www.bullmoosepatrol.com/bmp/2014/12/24/bsa-winter-camping-school-hypothermia I interacted briefly with this man from the Bull Moose Patrol at Madison's annual Canoecopia event--paddle sports oriented. Seems like legit outdoorsman.
    • @MattR  bottom of the opening slide showed it as copyright BSA 1978. I have seen many real life versions of that SM over the years, all of whom were sure that they were doing things the right way.  It takes a lot of effort to step back and let Scouts make mistakes.  I have told them more than a few times when they forget to pack something or don't set up the way I would, if it is not life threatening, I not going to step in and fix it for you; hopefully you will remember next time. I did have a little bit of a flashback when hearing that first little beep, and remembering how often I would have to remind my middle school students to pay attention to the beeps, as that was their signal to advance to the next frame when we showed a filmstrip in class.
    • @LeCastor  I spent a week at one of the Atlanta Area Council camps, Woodruff Scout Reservation and compared to Florida in July, it was downright cold, at 42 degrees the first night we were there.  Also spent about a week and a half on staff of a Woodbadge course hosted by New Orleans Area Council in '74.
    • Okay, @LeCastor, that is a brilliant idea. That should be put in a list of great and really different ways to engage scouts.
