The CO issue is not really surprising or at fault. And, it's far from unique. Most COs operate at arms length. Some COs equate to nothing more than the parents in the troop. It's rare to have an active, involved CO. I say this as I don't think there is anything unique for scout parents to notice or for the district/council to be concerned about. Is it ideal? Absolutely not. Is it unusual or immediately concerning? No.
I'm getting a little tired of breakfast burritos on each and every campout. There are a lot of other good breakfast options, some of which are faster and require less cleanup. Here's one that can be ready in a flash, can be cooked on either a stove or a campfire, and that requires no pots or pans.
Ham and Swiss Breakfast Croissant Ingredients:
large fresh croissants (at least 1 per person)
thick sliced ham or Canadian bacon
Slice croissants lengthwise. Put one or 2 slices of ham in each croissant. Put a slice of cheese in each. Wrap in aluminum foil. Heat no more than 5 minutes over low to medium flame (just enough to get it hot and melt the cheese).
I agree. It is troubling that the district/council have let this continue for 10 years. They must have known that the church had closed. It is also troubling that the parents have been willing (for the past 10 years) to sign their kids up in a unit without a real CO.
The boat is the least of their problems.
