A Bit More On Camp (+ Pictures & Video)

Where has the summer gone? The last week of campers leaves on Saturday and the staff will be out on Sunday (baring craziness).
We spend all year talking about and getting ready for camp and then it is over just like that. I did not even work on staff this year and yet this feeling is still real. So much of the time I spend with my camp friends is spent talking about the upcoming year and reminiscing about the past. It is amazing how time flies. I wonder what this next year will bring with so many people discussing not returning to camp…
When I was stepping into a skit during the closing campfire last friday, I asked my friend Ray to take some pictures and he ended up taking a video of part of the Knob Lick Knickerbockers skit, a spoof on the Knob Lick Knockers skit that we do every opening campfire. S-F Scout Ranch is in Knob Lick, Missouri. Knob Lick Knockers is a skit about a “model patrol” and how to set up your campsite for a good week of camp. The Knickerbockers have Jeeves. Check it out:
There are quite a few things that may be changing for next summer. I hope they all change for the best. I look forward to the future. 2010 is the 100th Anniversary of Scouting. Hopefully it will be here for another 100 years. I look forward to doing my part to ensure its continuation as boys need to understand the value of citizenship, leadership, service, and the outdoors.
