Cabin Camping

In Michigan. And with all the new scouts that just crossed over. And one of them is eerily similar to one of our already annoying ADHDish kids. You know, the one that yells things out when someone's talking and whenever it's their turn to stand up and talk, they'll get up, say two words, then drop down to their chair and put their head on the table. Our original saw marshmallows sitting on the front table that were going to be used for an activity and decided to steal them and try to hide them under the table and eat them.

 

Interestingly enough, I meant this to just be about the cabin camping.

 

Edit!: My sister works as a secretary or something like that at a company that does storage among other things and if people don't pay and don't pick up their things, then those things are free for the taking. My brother got a box that had a paintball gun, magic cards, old game system, beer posters, and a bunch of random cables (chargers, AV cables, media cable). I got to take the magic cards only because I wanted to look at them and see if I could find out if there were any that were good, but alas, I don't have the slightest about magic or its cards. :cute:

Yep, I pointed it out to my brother (ASPL) and he yelled at him. And then the kid started "crying". Not a shocker.

 

It's not the only trouble he's caused because of food, either. Last meeting a kid brought some sort of fries and said another kid could have them. Other kid took them from him and ran around the lunch table until the other kid decided it would be a good idea to jump onto the table to catch him.

 

Needless to say he's a pain in the ass. :/

Sounds like fun x.x. Any chance of calming them down regarding it? We tended to give them a lot of things to do to keep them from being pains (Collect firewood, etc)

Ah, but there's the thing, all these things happened during a meeting(s) where they were supposed to be planning something (this weekend in particular). But yeah, they're usually given something to do on actual campouts - either an activity or free reign outside.

 

I don't know, for this weekend all I want to do is bring my PDA and read some really good ebooks I converted. Or program but I'd imagine the laptop would be way too distracting and there's no chance I'd be allowed to take it. I'll probably end up bringing homework.

Meetings I have no idea, most of our meetings you had to plan quick, literally you had 10 minutes to plan out an entire camping trip. The rest was practice for the most part. Mostly first aid simulation, which they still suck at. I mean there's only so many times you can go over fractures, poison, etc, in a year x.x. We didn't really have anyone with ADHD cause too many problems, tbh they were relatively tame. At least more so over certain kids at camp x.x.

 

Yeah, that was one thing that was a bit of a problem with my troop. "No electronics allowed".

Sounds like an old Winter Wilderness Survival powerpoint our old SPL had made four years ago. That thing's come out several times already.

 

Let me guess, the only people good with first aid in your troop are the three or four older scouts and the rest have no clue whatsoever?

With the exception of one new kid, yep. One new kid actually bloody paid attention the first time.

 

And my problem isn't that they 'forget'. I could have a diagram and let them use any book, and they still wouldn't get anything done before the 'dummy' dies.

"No electronics" heh. Kids these days are so plugged in really, give them their console game and they'll be happy...and not do anything else >.<

They just don't care I guess? Some people realise the importance of first aid only when they encounter a situation where it is really needed. :/ And then it might be too late. :s

One of our assistant scoutmasters has a long tradition of making it the policy to have no electronics on the actual campout, with them only allowed on the car ride because it's such a long trip. Anyone caught with electronics gets them confiscated. :wizard:

I never did Boy Scouts, I did Royal Rangers, which is essentially the same thing, just hosted by a church. I got close to my Gold Medal of Achievement (essentially the same as an Eagle, but a bit harder, IIRC), but they changed the program and I lost the desire to go back and transfer it all over. Apparently it's now been fixed, so I could just go back and do a few more things.

 

I don't really care anymore, as most churches in our district are cutting it because no one wants to be outside anymore. Yeah, don't ask me, I'd die if I didn't get to go camping at least once a month.

 

And of course thanks to it, I'm certified in first aid and cpr, which has actually helped me in several situation (I'm reaaaalllllly clumsy)
