I'M BACK - And you are probably saying who are you. Just to remind
you, here is a brief description of myself.
I'm a Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 15 of Chippewa Falls, WI. I have been
part of Scouting since I was 7 year olds. I received my Eagle in 1990 at an
age of 18. Since then I received the District of Merit and Scouter's Key.
I'm a senior at the University Wisconsin - Eau Claire, majoring in
Elementary Education (1-9) and Physical Education (1-9). I hope to graduate
Some of you may remember me because in January I got a job at the Director
of the First Year program at Phillips Scout Reservation in Haugen, WI. I
asked many questions on how other camps ran theirs. For all the people who
want to know how it was, it was GREAT! I will write in more detail the next
couple of weeks about the program I set up. I would like to know about how
your camp went, particular your First Year Camper (FYC) program went. I
don't know what I'm doing next year, but if I move up or stay the same, be
ready to answer some questions for me in January.
If you have any questions about my summer as a FYC director, please express
them to me. I'm glad to be back and wish everyone a great new Scouting season.
Lastly, as you go into Scouting (whatever your job is), remember we are here
for the boys. If it takes more effort to please them, do it. I saw many
smiles this summer, and it makes me think what Scouting does for a boy (and
Troop 15's ASM
