1. ----Program. The BSA summer camps provide BSA orientated program with
trained staff to accomplish the program.
2. Also, our Scout camps are in grave danger of being closed. (On 5/25/93 I
attended an Exec. board meeting and found that the Area 3 staff has set up a
volunteer committee from across the Area to do just that, determine which of
the Scout camps in the Area WILL be closed. More later on this.) However, I
have known for almost 5 years that this situation was coming up.
3. MOST BSA troops only truly work on their merit badges (required to obtain any
advancement in our movement) AT summer camp. The quality of that work needs to
be supervised with registered merit badge counselors and/or trained summer camp
4. In many areas, it is becoming increasingly difficult to camp in "wilderness"
conditions, and a troop camping with campers around them, is just not the same
