All scouts should be working on collecting their pipestone wood for summer camp. They should start bringing their wood in for inspections by Liam between May 12th and June 2nd.

Tuscazoar Canoe & Hike Weekend
This is a fantastic article from a past Scouting magazine issue
pertaining to dealing with homesickness. It gives a lot of good advice for
leaders and parents pertaining to how we should deal with it. Please pay
specific attention to the section titled 'Set up a no-call policy'. We have had
to deal with this issue frequently. This is a reason we do not allow cell phones
to be seen at campouts. While we can't control use inside a tent, we hope
parents will understand, support, and reinforce our position to your sons.
Not a Happy Camper
5/14/2015: Site Updates! Please look around; all links should be working properly and dated information has been updated. If you should find something
isn't working, misspellings, typos, etc... please shoot me a note to investigate [ Jack at wetsmith AT gmail.com ]. If you would like anything added, let me know
that as well. I'll be making some subtle additions as time allows and enhancing information availalble. We try to balance offering helpful information but also need to protect the privacy of our families. Please realize this is a work of passion, so it takes time.
