Longtime Scouters say you can’t take the outing out of Scouting, but some Scouts would be happy to try. While most kids take to camping like dogs take to car rides, others consider sleeping in a tent (at night! in the dark!) to be nothing short of cruel and unusual punishment.
Scoutmaster P.T. says his Scouts spend so much time preparing and cleaning up after meals at district- and councilwide camping events, they miss some activities. How, he asks, can his troop streamline the routine so the boys have more time to participate?
