Parent Participation At Summer Camp

To the List -
I have been watching this thread with interest and I understand the point of
view that this is a good way to get adults involved, get them trained, etc.,
etc. I also have read many comments about "our Council Camp is closed in
January or February or ?????" Also read that if a Troop doesn't get in by
January or February, it's a mad scramble to find an out of council camp to
I would like to offer another point of view. Our council has two camps that
run at the max all summer long. There have even been times that meals have
been run in shifts or people have to eat outside the dining hall. My point
is--how many boys in this program FOR BOYS are being denied the experience
of summer camp because so many available slots are being taken up by adults?
Just a little food for thought!
