  1. Great responses, everyone. Keep the thoughts flowing! I'd love to hear from more of us Scouters.
  2. Scouters - I would like your thoughts on why we gather as Scouts and Scouters at Camp, Camporees and Jamborees. Is it the camaraderie between the youth? Is it a way to get out of the house, away from work? Is it to rub shoulders with like-minded adults? A few years ago I was at a Scout Camp with another leader and he said, "...can you feel it? It's invigorating and contagious." I asked him what he was talking about. He went on to explain about the "energy of youth". So, for you - is it the energy of youth? Why do we do what we do and why do we want to congregate? What is it about learning and sharing that would make us come back year after year? For you is it the pine trees and fresh air? Is it the beach or the desert? Is it community and belonging? Is it preparation through privation for our youth? Are we preparing them for something later? If so, what is it that moves you in your preparation? Is it life prep, or social experience? I'd love to gather your thoughts on why we gather at camporees, scout camps and jamborees. Thanks in advance for your brief or long answers. I prefer long answers so I can understand what you think. IBleedGreen - in AZ
