Self-run camps? in Summer Camp Posted May 26, 2006 I do not know if they still do it, but back in the early 90's, the largest troop in Lubbock, TX (Troop 157 I think) would not attend the council summer camps (Post and Tres Ritos). They always held their own. Why? 'Cause they'd overwhelm either of these camps and few other units would be able to attend at the same time if they had used the council camps. At that time, that troop was the sixth largest troop in the nation with approximately 120 scouts. No, I don't know what their secret was.
