    • Hopefully he can stick around and not get messed with. My neck of the woods has not had a good DE stay over a year in 11 years. Since he left, we have not had  a dedicated DE, and they all sucked. Since the district merger in 2021,  we are on DE #4. One had Scouting experience as a youth and volunteer. One was fresh out of college with no experience. Third one was a Cub Scout and needed a job. Met him once for about 10 minutes. Current one I know nothing about. He was not at district camporee, nor RT, so I have not met him yet. Don't even know his name, but he has been employed since September.
    • My district has had some truly bad DE’s over the years but we have had some really good ones as well. Our current DE is probably the best I have ever worked with. He has been able to walk that thin line between unit/program priorities and Council priorities.  A great DE makes a world of difference for district operations.
    • Youth-planned adventure story told by a 13 year old scout. https://www.pressherald.com/2022/11/25/guest-column-a-boy-scout-adventure/ ...We all piled into a stinky but hot, and amazing bunk room. The views from the window of the summit of Mt. Washington above us was incredible. We decided to go out and explore the mountain, being careful not to step on any alpine vegetation. We even decided to swim in the namesake Lakes of the Clouds. We were then encouraged by the adults to go inside the hut as the storms we had been racing had finally arrived. It was one of the coolest moments of the trip watching the entire mountain disappear from the comfort of our bunk room in a matter of seconds...
    • They couldn't anyway... NCAP specifically excludes unit camping, and directs it fall under G2SS:   NATIONAL CAMP STANDARDS APPLICABILITY, SA-001 Exclusions. The World Scout Jamboree, National Scout Jamboree, and National Order of the Arrow Conference are mass events subject to additional health and safety requirements specific to those events which are equivalent to or more stringent than the National Camp Standards. Unit activities are subject to the Guide to Safe Scouting. https://pdscouting.wpenginepowered.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/2022-NCAP-Standards-v2-430-056.pdf
    • LOL, is the National OA Committee implying that a unit run "resident camp" must comply with NCAP?
