    • My CC owns a couple teepees that we drag out for longer camping events. They take a solid hour to set up but they’re very weatherproof and can fit about ten to twelve people. They also gather a few oohs and aahs from onlookers. 
    • You had another thread on how to earn the Totin Chip outside of summer camp, correct?  I assume you are a Scout? There is no need to wait until May to earn the Totin Chip. Here are the official BSA requirements: https://www.scouting.org/programs/boy-scouts/advancement-and-awards/merit-badges/totin/ Read the tools section in the Boy Scout Handbook.  Then talk to your Patrol Leader, Troop Guide, or Instructor and ask how you can earn it in your troop.   If they don't know, ask your SPL.    
    • Could you provide more information?

      Are you a Scout / parent / adult leader (Scouter) / some other position or role? What type of camp is it?  A camp run by your troop / district / council?  Who is the camp for? My council runs a shorter version of summer camp that is intended for 1st year Scouts.  Some summer camps have a Trail To First Class (TTFC) that goes by different names, but it's basically a skills class that covers some of the early rank requirements (Tenderfoot - First Class).
    • SSScout, I'm curious about that Hebrew National hot dog commercial. Is it online anywhere?
