Ask Scout - An Advice Column about Summer Resident Camp

Dear Scout:

I hate creepy bugs.  What should I do about bugs at camp?


C.O. (Creeped Out)

Dear C.O.,

I'm not crazy about bugs, either. But I know they do good stuff for the environment. I try to change how I think about them so I won't be scared or creeped out.  I say, "Hello, Friend Bug, would you mind getting off the path in front of me?"  Then I just walk around them. No big deal. 

Of course, sometimes I eat them, but you might not want to do that.

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
