Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter May 19, 2019

I actually saw patch trading this weekend!  One of the Scouts on staff is the son of one of my contemporaries from back in the day.  His son had some patches spread out including a staff patch from my first summer in 1988.  Looks like I can add patch trading as an evening activity one night!

The lodge also held a patch auction that I was not able to attend as I was busy meeting with camp leadership.  They had a silent auction going on as well as a pretty well stocked lodge store.

I rolled out the plan for our summer camp patches to the staff and they were pretty excited about the new look.  We have a  new brand logo for the camp and in this first year we are using it as the base patch to recognize Scouts for completing our program.  All Scouts will have the chance to earn 5 ribbons from 18 different ones offered that will hang on the bottom of this base patch.

I have 98 auctions live on eBay right now and will be launching more tonight.  Hopefully before I push off for the summer I can come to a stopping point and get more up.

We have 3 weeks before staff week and are in a good spot to increase camp attendance 25% from last year.  That will be a great goal for us to reach as we roll out a new program that we think will be our core piece for years to come.
