Tent set up question

Recommended Posts

Seems it's time for the older Scouts and a mom to take lessons from the younger Scouts....as I see it, tents are a Scouts home for a week, so make it homey ....

The only problems I see are the tent flaps are not properly rolled up.  Points off on inspection!  Also, if it rains, that rug is going to get wet .

Some of the tents at our council camp do not have the straps to tie up the tent flaps any more. The tent straps tore away long ago and we will not see them again until the tent is replaced with a new one with buckles.

We used to thread our waxed rope from our troop supply to replace the lost tent flap ties.

The USA Contingent World Scout Jamboree neckerchiefs had ribbing (white stars on blue and white "USA" lettering on red) that would make perfect replacement for flap ties. I wonder if the manufacturer has any overstock?

What a great way for @karunamom3's scouts up their game next summer! Ask that camp commissioner for a canvas that needs a lot of tender loving care, bring a sewing kit and some elegant patches and chord, and bling up that baby!
