Lessons from the past... bring back something interesting
By: Posted On: 2010-01-20

Recently I was talking to a Scouting friend from the UK. It seems at a recent Cub Camp the leaders needed some time to prepare the food. They sent the kids out in Patrols to come back with “the most interesting thing” which would win a prize. When all the groups came back one group had a live wild rabbit. The leader skinned and cooked the rabbit, which the kids had for dinner.

The lesson... don't send the Scouts out to find interesting things unless you want to deal with what they bring you back and Scouts don't bring it back unless your sure you want digest it.
