Fall @ Cedars

The leaves are beginning to turn, and there is an unmistakable crispness in the air. Fall is a beautiful time of year. Cedars is no different, but then again it is. Sure, there is OA conclave and NBZ festival, but few see camp during the off season. For the staff who have so much invested in Cedars, it feels strange to visit camp in the fall. It is eerily quiet, empty, void of the energy associated with summer. We thrive for that missing enthusiasm, the fellowship of our peers, the commitment to Scouting, and the chance to impact the lives of thousands of young men - future leaders. We eagerly await June 2010. Whether as a Scout, leader, or new member of staff, come join us. If you aren't there, we will be diminished.
