Ask Scout - An Advice Column about Summer Resident Camp

Thumbnail image for ask_scout.jpg

Dear Scout:

I have never been to overnight camp.  Will I miss my family too much to have a good time?

Don't Know if this is Such a Good Idea

Dear Know
I remember when I was a puppy and my mom would go away to nap or take a walk.  I really missed her and even whimpered a little.  My puppy littermates told me what to do!  They said to think about my favorite parts of my day, and to tell MYSELF the happy story I would get to tell my MOM when I saw her again.  It helped a lot!

Your Camping Friend,


(Scout is an experienced camper who has spent many summers at GSSA camps, interacting with campers and staff.  Scout is happy to answer all your questions about Summer Resident Camp.  You may reach Scout by emailing
