    I plan on going, I was only there for 1/2 a day before I was in the ER.

    Request for Summer Camp Suggestions

    Our council recently bought pump actions and any firearm I did shoot was owned by the respective camps.

    Request for Summer Camp Suggestions

    I was supposed to take shotgun at a summer camp. I am glad I was pulled. I just shot a pump action last year and my thumb was cut and my arm was sore.

    Obscure Summer Camp Must Haves

    From the BSA green canvas tents it is just like a regular tent but with a cot already in there and sometimes mosquito netting. I like them I am sure he will too!

    ^ merit badges give opportunity to teach new scouts skills. When I did my CIT plenty of younger scouts did rifle and archery to try it. One thing it does do is not overwhelm the staff for the area. Because our new scout program area is not that big (our entire camp is 158 acres).

    Obscure Summer Camp Must Haves

    I honestly loved being a CIT last year. I am now working in the kitchen. There is only 1 returning kitchen staff member. what are your CIT/Camp staff stories or experiences? So I decided my tall skinny body should do the mile. At our camp we swam 1/2 of a mile then we did the mile the next morning. It was my last week to do it. I was determined. I wake up to do it. My tent mate does it as well. So we have to swim to a buoy and back twice. (It is 1.1 - 1.3 miles 2 times) I spend the next 1 and a half hours swimming slowly. I once came close to quitting. so moral of the story don't give up? Try something new if you can. At tesomas I did black powder shooting and zip lining. As well as fishing.

    Tooled Leather Belt Sizing

    Just curious how do I know what size belt I am for the BSA leather belts? I had to return a size 34 jamboree belt due to it being too big.

    Ditch the Neckerchief

    Nice. Maybe our camp staff can do that
  12. Our camps gun range is no different. Even if you got the safe out how would nobody notice you taking it?

    Ditch the Neckerchief

    This years camp staff will have them. I hope they turn out good. Our jamboree contingent is using a bolo as well as my home troop.

    Scout with no money

    Is summer camp still going on? Try and get him to CIT at the summer camp or a summer camp. People will pitch in a few bucks depending on the camp. And it can help him out in the long run.
