2007 Camp Leaders Guide

Scout Resident Camp 2007
Dear Unit Leaders,
This manual was developed to help you plan your Unit's week at Custaloga Town Scout Reservation this
summer. We are convinced that if you follow the steps listed in this Camp Leaders Program Guide to develop
and plan your week at camp, your camp experience will be much more rewarding.
Although there are many ways to measure the success of a week of camp, the real goals are those of the
Scouting movement itself: character building, citizenship training, and personal fitness. The number of merit
badges earned or requirements passed is not an end to itself. Developing confidence, self-reliance, and
knowledge; an appreciation of our natural environment, a concern for it's survival and ours; teamwork; strong
agile bodies; quick and discerning minds; empathy for our more or less fortunate brothers, and an understanding
of one's fellow man, are all goals that we strive to achieve at camp. However, the bottom line is that the boy
must enjoy himself and have fun.
The Council Camping Committee provides the right atmosphere; the staff will help to make progress toward
these goals, but success depends mostly on you the Unit Leader. It depends on your example, imagination,
preparation, and planning. The challenge is great, but so are the rewards as Scouting continues to turn boys into
So, begin planning today and keep reviewing your plan. Consult your Scouts and find out what they hope to
gain by their week at camp. Talk to their parents and find out what they would like their sons to achieve.
Finally, talk to us so that we can help to make it happen with you.
We stand prepared to help you do your best.
Yours in Scouting,
Ted Miller Dan Lindh
Council Camping Committee Chairman Reservation Director
