It’s week two of Camp Belzer: Scouts of the Round Table. The new staff has gained further confidence in their program areas and they are performing their leadership duties with flying colors.
Here with me is one of those afore mentioned “new staff.” He works in Camp Belzer’s STEM area. This staff member requests to remain anonymous, thus I shall be referring to him as Elliott. Elliott’s first comment is—“it’s a little less rainy,” followed quickly by an explanation to one of Engineering’s (a section of STEM) newest program device: a pneumatic crane. This pneumatic crane is an eight-inch tall structure that uses air pressure to lift an arm up and down. This crane is one of the many exciting tools Camp Belzer has recently built and implemented into the new program.
Amongst other new and exciting developments happening here at Camp Belzer; we have somewhat gotten rid of the photography position. In the past, Camp Belzer had a photographer go around and take pictures of the packs and later compiling all the photos together on DVD. This year, the photographer position is no longer, instead it has been combined with another job—one which includes more administrative duties. This is where I, the writer of these blog posts, have come in. This new position happens to be my job; the official title is Administrative Office Assistant. The job definitely keeps me busy, but I enjoy the controlled chaos of rushing around camp.
Week two has been the biggest week in Camp Belzer history. I feel incredibly honored to be working on the 2016 staff, as all of these huge changes and increasing group sizes are taking place. Change is good, and the changes our camp has been making are definitely those of the good kind.
I’ll see you guys in week three!
