I also have a problem with the picture. SKC (Simon Kenton Council) has
enetered a long term rental of part of Camp Lazarus to a private company
which runs the Adventure Education Camp there. They run a completely
separate program at that which does not follow BSA guidelines in MANY
respects. SKC allows Scouting units to use the facility under AEC auspices
- units pay to use the facilities - under AEC rules.
There are many of us here at SKC who were very surprised that a photo
showing a violation of National and Local policies was a winner in the
photo contest as a summer camp activity. Tigers are not allowed to attend
summer camps. Tigers are not allowed to use zip lines or other high ropes
activities. etc. etc. Yes, I am venting, sorry.
Bottom line - the zip line is not part of a "Council" facility or program.
