CampCast S2Ep4 - OA Spring Fellowship

I am always amazed by the youth in our council. In this episode of C^mp C^st, Adam sits down with former and future Camp Staff members during OA Spring Fellowship. What you will hear might bring a tear, it will surely make you laugh, and it will remind you that we have THE BEST camp staff! So grab a cup of coffee and come sit by the fire for another episode of C^mp C^st.

Camp Cast S2Ep2 - The BSA Birthday and the Blue and Gold

Camp Cast S2Ep2 - The BSA Birthday and the Blue and Gold

Fun fact - On June 15th, 1916, Woodrow Wilson signed a bill into law that granted federal incorporation to the Boy Scouts of America and protected the BSA's name and insignia. But the birthday of the BSA is February, and this week on Camp Cast we explore the history of the BSA, the role of the Blue and Gold banquet in the Cub Scouting program, and the importance of milestones in the scouting program. As an added plus, we tearfully look at one of our Cross Over Ceremonies. Comments or idea's email us at:

Camp Cast S2Ep1: Steve Hammond - Our Council Cheerleader

Camp Cast S2Ep1: Steve Hammond - Our Council Cheerleader

There seems to be so much going on in our council - and now they are talking about selling the council office! Sometimes it can be overwhelming and hard to keep up with who is making these decisions.  I got to sit down with Steve Hammond to chat about his role as Council President, the state of the council, and his favorite camping story.  In January of 2023, Steve wrote in the Tributary: One of my favorite authors Mark Twain once noted “Reports of my death or greatly exaggerated.”

Listen to Steve talk about the future of the Virginia Headwaters Council.  Learn more about the activities of the Council Board on their new webpage.

This Episode is made possible by: Camp Shenandoah - be sure to register your troop today, and by Wood Badge - signup now for the BSA's best leadership training.
