In 2018, representatives from the Council Executive Board, Council Camping and Properties Committee, Camp Strategic Planning Committee, Commissioner Cabinet, and Council Unit Relations Taskforce embarked on engaging unit leaders and parents in discussions about their Scouting experiences in the New Birth of Freedom Council. The objective of the group was to gather feedback in two key areas: summer camp experiences and year-round Scouting experiences.
The group wanted to gain in-person feedback that could be used to strengthen and enhance camping operations at both Hidden Valley and Tuckahoe. It was determined that the ability to dialogue face-to-face with leaders and parent would provide important data that is necessary to help keep programs relevant, attractive, meaningful, safe and fun, feedback that standard paper or electronic surveys are unable to capture.
The report below presents what parents and leaders who attended either Hidden Valley or Tuckahoe in 2018 had to say about their summer camp experiences. Click on the image below to review the report.
