COOL CAMP CITTA SCOUT RESERVATION

someTimes iT’s a mad dash. Other times it’s just plain mad. The Friday night Water Carnival at Citta Scout Reservation has equal parts competitive fervor and silly fun. There’s a canoe-swamping event, a


Scoutmaster belly-flop contest (judged on style, splash and redness), and a cardboard-canoe race where Scouts who rush their construction work later experience a distinct sinking feeling. But perhaps the wildest of all is the “Sugar


Cookie.” Scouts run into the water, run out and then cover themselves in sand. Everyone votes on which Scout makes the best cookie. Sweet!


48 SCOUTING ¿ MAY•JUNE 2014


It all takes place at this popular camp


located minutes from the Jersey Shore or an hour east of Philadelphia. The rest of the week is so full that by Saturday, Scouts will be wonder- ing where the time went. Other camp highlights:


fExtensive merit badge offerings — more than 75 in all — including favorites like Wilderness Survival and Swimming, as well as newcomers Kayaking and Welding.


fA packed evening schedule with “Boy Scout Jeopardy,” an “Iron Chef Citta” cooking com- petition, movie night and a closing campfire.


fFirst Class Frontier, where new Scouts work on rank requirements and start on Swimming and Leatherwork merit badges.


fA Scouter-friendly setting where feedback is welcome. “Coffee With the Camp Director” lets leaders say what works and what doesn’t.
