Just returned from Intercamp 97 in Sittard, Holland with 22 Scouts and 6
adults. Just wanted to say my hat is off to the Dutch Scouts who put on
an absolutely great experience in Scouting.
For those who do not know what Intercamp is, it is an International
Event made up of Scouts from Holland, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Czech
Republic, and Scouts from the families of British, Canadian and US
service members in Europe.
There were over 2200 scouts in attendance. By the way, this was the
first year of the Polish Scouts attendance and expect their numbers to
grow next year. The adults in our troop made great friends with the
Czech leaders who have invited us to visit them later this year. I know
the boys made great friends with a group of Canadian Girl Guides.
This is one of the highlights of our Scouting year and as usual can't
wait again to next year. The US Scouts will be hosting the event in
Germany next year.
For the scouts in Troop 26 in Heidelberg,
