I recently had the chance to interview Jake Boritt the Director of 759: Boy Scouts of Harlem. Hope you enjoy. What was the motivation, the drive behind making the film? I had recently moved to Harlem and was fascinated by the neighborhood. I was exploring angles to make a film about Harlem. I was just finished my film Budapest to Gettysburg when Justin returned from an 18 month trip around the world looking to get...[More]

When in camp, what kind of tables do you use? I bet this is a silly question for many of you, as you go to established camp sites and use the existing panic tables. What do you do if you camp in a place with no tables, or not enough tables?What I like to use are six-foot bi-fold folding tables. The tables I use came from a local store for $45 each. The packaging claims...[More]

This was posted on a Scout mailing list and thought it was radically accurate so I am sharing. The other is unknown, but if anyone does not the author or source to credit it to, I would be happy to do so. Murphy's scouts laws The child with the fewest clean clothes will invariably be the first to get wet The easier the rules of the game the fewer will want to play If it...[More]

A lot of the campouts I did with the Scouts were to places that have no facilities, no water, tables, bathroom... nothing. This meant we had to bring everything in and take everything out. In this brief post just wanted to point out different kind of containers for transporting water from home to the campsite.My favorite types of water containers are like the navy blue one in the picture. It holds 5 gallons of water...[More]

We have had our first cubby meetings and it was real fun, although not everyone was happy to go back to school.

So here are some simple steps and tips on washing dishes in camp.You will need three wash basins, hot water, cold water, dish washing soap, bleach, scrubbers / sponges and a towel. As mentioned in an earlier post I like to use clean cloth diapers as camp towels.Start by heating the water up till it starts bubbling, but is not quit boiling....[More]

Visibility One of my first moments when I considered enrolling my son in scouting was while visiting his elementary school shortly after we had moved. While searching out classrooms I saw several groups of children pass by. It seemed that one child was inevitably in a scouting uniform. My mind quickly connected that scouting would be a great way for my son to meet new friend and the rest, as they say, is history....[More]

It is often said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Never has this been truer than when explaining scouting to a new boy or his parents.This year, our pack decided to work on improving our recruiting numbers in several ways. One of those came upon us purely by accident when a den leader began working on a scrapbook for the tigers. The project soon snowballed into a pack wide project with several parents...[More]
