Hi Joel, et al!
You've gotten some good suppositions. Here's another:
I would think it also depends on how "full" the camp gets with in-council
units. For instance, at the H. Roe Bartle Reservation, one of my council's
camps, they run at or above capacity for the entire six sessions. I happen
to think that it's because of the fact that it's a first-rate camp and
because of the Mic-O-Say program. I would imagine that council would have
a hard time justifying turning away an in-council unit to accomodate an
So why more money? I would think that it would make it possible to hire
staff for a longer period of time, keep insurance for a longer period of
time, keep utiliities up for periods of "peak usage" for a longer period of
time, etc. Then there are the costs (that YOUR council doesn't pay) for
secretarial/bookeeping/administrative help to keep track of your questions,
BLUE SKIES!, Any day above ground is a good day!
