Adult leaders allow camp to happen by providing leadership and guidance to Scouts throughout the week. But that doesn't mean they can't have fun too! There is a full schedule of leader-only activities and trainings that will help enhance their experience, share fellowship with other Scouters, and offer training in a variety of areas.
Using the resources you find around camp, make your own ball and club, then hit the links for a round of Pioneer Golf! One of the favorite activities of the week, this primitive way to play puts everybody on the same playing field, despite your handicap.
One of the great benefits of being a Scouter is all the great food around the campfire. Each troop is encouraged to submit a Dutch oven dish of their choosing for the Golden Spoon competition. Do you have a troop favorite dish that you think is the best around? Then gather your ingredients, get the fire going, and cook up a winner to be judged by the camp staff. One troop will be named the winner of the Golden Spoon award, to be presented at the closing campfire. Of course, in this activity, everyone is a winner, because we all get to eat.
A variety of trainings are available for leaders during the week. During your week of camp is a great time to get trained, because you're already there! Here are some of the trainings available to adult leaders:
The Camp Commissioner will provide the schedule of trainings and leaders are encouraged to attend all the trainings they can fit in the week.
