It did to my 15 ½ year old Life Scout, working his 3rd summer as a Tribe Guide at Cub Scout Adventure Camp. When I picked him up on the last Friday of summer camp, he was bursting with excitement to tell me that he’d gotten a Letter! A letter? From whom? From a camper! In awe he said “I made a real difference! You could see it during the week and now I just received a letter from him”
Indeed, not only a letter from Lauren & Mike Garrett, Pack 46 – Holden, but a wonderful picture of the Red Fox Patrol from Owen, addressed to my son – Commander Josh!
If you’re on the fence about sending your scout to camp, come on and join the fun – it’s amazing. And if your scout is 14 or older, we have a co-ed CIT program for youth without experience and hire young men and women for summer camp jobs during the summer season.
Many thanks to Owen and his family for letting us know the difference that Camp and Commander Josh made to their scouting experience. If you have a Shout Out to a Guide or to Camp in general, please send it in. As space allows we’ll publish your comments!
See you at Cub Safari!
