While at the Thunder Ridge Scout Camp this summer, we were privileged to have a truly great troop come to our camp.  These guys seem to be doing everything right!  They really are impressive. l Read about them at http://blog.utahscouts.org/camping/camp-thunder-ridge-here-come-the-warriors/

We (my wife, Lou, and I) are serving for the summer at the Thunder Ridge Scout Camp located in Southern Utah.  We are having quite the adventures as the Brian Head fire made us evacuate the camp.  And so we have been wandering around ever since.  We are having a grand time in spite of the exciting adventures and challenges.  Read about our adventures on these blog articles:

The Camp Staff at any Scout camp makes the program and is the energy and excitement for the great programs.  This article is a tribute to those young staffers:
