I need the list's advice again...
The boys in our troop have decided to develop a
Safe Campsite award for the Wabuha District Spring
Camporee. The intent is to prepare a list of safe
campsite practices, distribute the list to the troops,
and then to hold campsite inspections during the camporee
and award Safe Campsite ribbons. I'm proud of them for
selecting this project and think that they will learn a
lot from it.
For criteria areas what about site selection, ax/hatchet
safety, fire safety, hygiene and sanitation, campsite
setup, and emergency readiness.
If you've done something like this before we sure could
use some advice. What references should we have for the
boys? Are there websites with good information? (I'm
pretty sure there are but haven't started looking yet.)
Are there other criteria areas we should look at?
Any advice would be appreciated. I need to be ready to
guide their discovery but I'm far from expert in this
area. I'd be glad to share the criteria either by
posting to the list or by private e-mail.
