For Scouters the summer marks the beginning of camping season, a time when novice and longtime Scouts head outdoors to put their handbooks and skills to the test. These campouts are the hallmark of Scouting and the source of countless memories for the boys and parents who attend.

Rather than tell you why summer camps and Scouting are the ultimate source of fun and youth development for Scout-age kids, this summer we’re letting their parents fill you in. Check back with Scouting Newsroom weekly for tales from parents of Scouts, both new and seasoned, starting this week with Janel’s post.
