Living in the Open


Camping is the joyous part of a Scout's life. Living out in God's open air, among the hills and the trees, and the birds and the beasts, and the sea and the rivers - that is, living with nature, having your own little canvas home, doing your own cooking and exploration - all this brings health and happiness which as you can never get among the bricks and smoke of the town.

Hiking, too, where you go father afield, exploring new places every day, is a glorious adventure. It strengthens you and hardens you so that you won't mind wind and rain, heat and cold. You take them all as they come, feeling that sense of fitness that enables you to face any old trouble with a smile, knowing that you will concur in the end.

But, of course, to enjoy camping and hiking, you must know how to do it properly.

You have to know how to put up a tent or a hut for yourself; how to lay and light a fire; how to cook your food; how to tie logs together to make a bridge or a raft; how to find your way by night, as well as by day, in a strange country, and many other things.

Very few fellows learn these things when they are living in civilized places, because they have comfortable houses, and soft beds to sleep in. There food is prepared for them, and when they want to know the way, they just ask a policeman.

Well, when those fellows try to go scouting or exploring, they find themselves quite helpless.

Take even your sports "hero" and put him down in the wildernesses, alongside a fellow trained in camping, and see which can look after himself. High batting averages are not much good to him there. He is only a "tenderfoot".

Cost Per Person:

Food $10.00
Cabin Fee $5.00
Total $15.00

Cost is based on 10 people. Even with more people attending the price should stay the same. [more food will need to be purchased]. Profits, if any, will be put towards the floor fund.

Longhorn Lodge Transformed into a sleeping lodge, but was once the Dinning Hall, commissary and trading post. Offers a 6 burner Natural gas stove with a large griddle. Adequate kitchen space for those who need elbow room. Two bathrooms and two separate sleeping areas. Gas heat for winter use. Will sleep 15 to 20 on the floor.

The LeVeque Scout Reservation was given to the Simon Kenton Council BSA in 1957. The Reservation's 1,126 acres were developed into two patrol cooking summer camps: Longhorn and Buckeye. Upon the acquisition of Camp Falling Rock, the summer camping programs were transferred to that location and LeVeque facility was not developed further. At present, the camps are used for cub day camps, training events and numerous weekend camping.

From the chruch we will travel Hamilton Road south to US33 South/East to Logan Ohio. From US33 we will take US328 North to Boy Scout Road. Ranger Phone Number (###) ###-####

Wearing the Uniform


The Scout kit, through its uniformity, now constitutes a bond of brotherhood among boys across the world.

The correct wearing of the Uniform and smartness of turnout of the individual Scout makes him a credit to our Movement. It shows his pride in himself and in his Unit.

One slovenly Scout, on the other hand, inaccurately dressed may let down the whole Movement in the eyes of the public. Show me such a fellow and I can show you one who has not grasped the true Scouting Spirit and who takes no pride in his membership of our great Brotherhood.

February Campout

James D. Corder

After being gone for over a decade, I will be taking my Explorer Post back to my olde summer camp. I am looking forward to the first campout of the new group of Explorers being at the camp I have so many fond memories of and that I served on staff for.

Remember: "When it is hog calling time at Camp Buckeye,..."
