Scout Camp vs. Asthma Camp.........  Pretty simple decision if it were my kid.

High Adventure vs. Band Camp........  Another pretty simple decision for me.

Scouting is very important in my eyes and especially getting into the outdoors.  The outdoors puts the sparkle into the Scouting program.  It is a classroom without walls and is a laboratory for fun Scouting experiences.  The outdoors strips away the cell phones, the TVs, the game consoles and other distractions this busy world uses to get the attention of the boy.  An outdoor experience stimulates good citizenship through teamwork and opportunities for leadership.  It emphasizes spirituality by bringing young people closer to nature. It connects individuals to the land, helping them develop a bond of respect for, and stewardship of, wild places and wild things.
