them how they can use them to plan camping activities. I would never
expect a boy to come up with progam ideas if they've never been asked
to do it before.
As far as I can tell, the adults have always done the monthly campout
planning (other than patrol menus), thus effectively crippling any
ability of the boys to do such planning on their own. Worse yet, the
adults then criticize the boys for not knowing how to plan a campout!
