In keeping with our growing tradition, I wanted to send out a summary email for Camp Henson 2012.  We had a very successful summer camp.  Once again, we returned to Camp Henson in Nanticoke, MD, part of the Delmarva Council.  We had 41 scouts and 10 full-time adult campers attend camp this year. Of the 41 scouts, we had 10 brand new Brownsea scouts.  While at camp, we had the opportunity to participate in 2 camp fires and we had an awesome, late night Troop Swim.  All the scouts had the opportunity to go tubing behind the camp motor boats and we worked on a lot of merit badges.  Our scouts worked on 29 different merit badges that ranged from Archery to Wilderness Survival, with a little Metalworking and ATV riding thrown in for good measure.

Here are some of the statistics we observed at Camp Henson this year:


High temperature:  103

Low temperature: 67

Number of Merit Badges completed: 142

Number of partial Mbs: 33

Tenderfoot Scouts Created: 9

Brownsea Scout Requirements Completed: 370

Eagle Merit Badges Completed: 63

Major Injuries: 0

Scouts returned to parents: 41

I would like to send out a personal thank you to all of the scouts that served as my leaders on this trip, without them, we would not have had a successful summer camp:

John Burbach

Justin Turner

Luke Auman

Austin Gilley

David Fish

Hunter Hageny

Colum Conner

Will Nicoud

Alex Stein

We also had an awesome group of parents that worked together as a team to make a memorable camping experience for all of our scouts, without them, our camp would not have been nearly as successful as it was.  Thanks to all of the adults that worked on or attended camp this year:

Joe Nelson

Brian Gilley

Bob Steindl

Randy Hartman

Mark Lewis

Mark Casey

Stephen Nicoud

Jeff Burbach

Nancy Baker

I personally had a great time and will remember this scout camp for years to come.  Not only did I get to participate in a very cool MB (Metalworking), but I got the chance to watch all of our scouts grow.  I saw many of my seasoned scouts grow into strong leaders, I saw quite scouts find their voices and provide direction to other scouts.  I watched as our tentative new scouts, venture into an alien world and come out on the other end as confident, seasoned Tenderfoot scouts.  All-in-all, we had a great week and I am glad that I had the opportunity to spend a great week with all your sons.


Mr. Conner
