I have very much found that SOME limited summer camps
still operate with the patroll program in mind.
Troop sites are even divided into patroll areas
with a patroll kitchen for Patroll cooking. Most
program areas are geared for patrolls etc.
We found Sabatis - a camp part of the Adirondak scout
reservation system - run by Hiawatha council such a camp.
I have found FEW if any camps centered on a dinning hall
program to be able to really support the patroll method.
After all - just like at home, the kitchen is a central
spot for the family to gather and talk and plan etc.
Plus camps that run merit badge factories - by thier
desing - will break about the patroll.
My 2 cents - now that we have mail back.
