There are other programs at camps, some have not approached the level of
organization as Mic-O-Set & Firecrafters but each camp has its traditions.
Camp Brady Saunders in Richmond Virginia (Robert E. Lee Council) comes to
mind as having different honor programs and long held camp traditions.
John did ask one question for which I can find no answer. In the Land of
the Oneidas Council I can find no reference to a Camp Murray or any special
Honor Society. This Council operates three Summer Camps:
Boy Scout - Camp Kingsley
Boy Scout - Cedarlands Scout Reservation
Cub Day Camp - Camp Ballou
Hopefully someone else on the list might know something about this.
Finally let me say as someone who is quite partial to the O.A. that I think
any of these programs can exist fine along side the O.A. I don't perceive
any need for there to be an alternative. The Heart of America & Crossroads
of America Councils both aptly demonstrate that both programs can flourish
side by side.
I hope this info helps!
