  3. Hey Jo, Saw your post and thought that i would do a review on Resica Falls Scout Reservation for you. It might be bias because i am the lake director but I am very truthful and have been in the same position as you looking for camps for my troop.

I hope this helps and if you have any questions my email is clunden@grangerclassic.com... feel free to email me Enthusiam of staff - Very high.

  5. Camp Big Springs - Resica Falls Scout Reservation - Marshalls Creek PA Cradle of Liberty Council, Eastern Zone Reasons: The camp is amazing. Not only is the program put together really well, but the staff is awsome. Last year was my first year going to the camp and i fell in love with it. There is so much besides merit badges that the scouts can do with their time. Swimming down by the river, boating, etc. Also, they just built a brand new pool and shower house which is huge. Individual showers with private changing areas. Out of all of the camps i have been to, this one is the b

  7. Hello all, I need some help with this one. I was an SPL who ran everything. Did everyones job for them. I did all the campouts, youth training, ceremony's, meetings, parties, etc. and now that i am JASM i feel like i have no active leadership role. Its kind of just a place my scoutmaster throws you when you have no where else to go. I was wondering what do you other scoutmasters have your jasm do to keep him busy and if you have a set job description. Any input would be greatly appreciated as i have a meeting with my scoutmaster to discuss my role as JASM. Thanks,
