Summer camp should be enjoyable. in Summer Camp Posted March 5, 2014 Camp is supposed to be fun. National standards require a camp to leave time available for patrols or troops to have independent program in their campsite. Sadly, the majority of the leaders and parnets attending summer camp with a troop probably don't possess the skills needed to have separate programs. The troops tend to rely on the camp and staff to offer program for them.You have an animated avatar! Trippy!
