IMHO - Many a scout has a *GREAT* time on a weekend campout. A couple of these,
add a 3 day weekend (memorial day weekend in our troop), and a new scout is
almost ready for a week at summer camp... except, for the strange food, new
routine, and using the latrine.
>>>>> Many mid-week bellyaches are turned into "home sickness" <<<<<
An appropriate SM discussion with his scouts at summer camp, about how the body
really should not be expected to wait until getting home to the boy's favorite
bathroom... should do the trick.
It's an annual item at summer camp with our troop, and a good chuckle over
the late-nite campfire... of the time we finally realized what ailed the boys!
