Camp Rainey Mountain in Clayton Georgia had the Best Staff I've seen in 2006 and seeing how they operated makes me think it will still be the same. It was an enjoyable experience all the way around.

I spent 3 summers as a youth at Camp V-Bar, located at Salmen Scout Reservation outside Kiln, MS currently owned by the Southeast Louisiana Council. I also did a few summers there as an adult.

 

I spent one summer at Avondale Scout Reservation as an adult, outside baton Rouge, LA.

 

I did one summer up in LaDomaine, Quebec, Canada doing a 50 miler.

 

I participated in the European Camp Staff Program, working at Kingsdown International Scout Campsite in Kingsdown, Kent, UK (now a privately owned campsite). I also worked at Youlbury International Scout Campsite (now called Youlbury Scout Activity Center) in Oxford, Oxfordshire, UK that same summer when Kingsdown was overstaffed.

 

I did 2 years of staff duty at Camp Bonner, Blounts Creek, NC

 

And I did 2 years of staff duty at Camp V-Bar

I did all of my summer camps, both as a camper and a staffer, at Camp Soule in Clearwater, FL. Council stopped operating summer camp there in 1988 and moved it to our new camp, Sand Hill Scout Reservation, in Brooksville, FL. I volunteered a weeks time to be a part of the "moving crew". We hauled all the tents, cots, platforms, etc from one camp to the other and then set up. It took a week to move eveything. Sand Hill opened one week later.

 

Due to drought, rabid development, and overpumping of ground water, Sand Hill's 40 acre lake is now a mud pit not much bigger than a olympic-sized pool. Camp Soule still has a healthy lake and a large swimming pool. I have convinced my Council to hold an Aquatics Camp at Camp Soule. The Aquatics Camp will allow our units to experience every aquatics badge or advancement. It should also get a couple of the old-timers fired up to see a week of summer camp at Camp Soule again.

It was nice reading the replies and seeing that some folks had attended the same camps as I did growing up. Mine included the following....

 

1989: Camp Baden-Powell, England (Transatlantic Council)

1990: Camp Freedom, Germany (Transatlantic Council)

1991: Camp Bayern, Germany (Transatlantic Counicl)

1992: Camp Freedom, Germany (Transatlantic Council)

1994: Camp La-no-che, Florida (Central Florida Counicl)

 

We were supposed to go to Camp Tuscany in Italy in 1992, but we found out about a week before we were to leave, France wouldn't give us permission for our Troop to use an Army bus to transport us down to Italy for the week, luckily, we were able to transfer over to Freedom for summer camp. Alot of us were really bummed, because we always heard rumors from other Troops that there was a nude beach just a mile or so away from camp.
