I sent my oldest off to camp for the first time at Camp Steiner in Utah's Uinta mountains this morning.  For me, there was never a question of whether I'd go with him, Scout Camp is a time to get away from Mom and Dad.  He needs this time away from home.  He still needs help packing, though (not that I could tell him anything he doesn't already know, what with his 12 years of experience and all that).  Yes, you need clean socks!!!!

Great milestone!

The troop didn't need help covering any adult slots? That's a perfect situation. I agree that giving some separation time is nice, but I know that having enough adults to fill the slots is often an issue.
