Philadelphia Encampment

Dear Scouters,

We were truly excited and honored to have you and your unit participate with us at the Second Annual Philadelphia Encampment. This was an extremely important event that not only put Scouting on display, but also showcased Scouting in Cradle of Liberty Council to the city of Philadelphia. Any event of this scope is successful for two reasons; first, the countless volunteers that gave their time and talents to this effort, and second, the over 700 Scouts and Scouters that attended and participated in the program for the weekend.

While we have received some great feedback about the overall program, we must acknowledge that several aspects of the Saturday lunch program did not flow as smoothly as planned. We would like to take this opportunity to apologize to those units that were negatively affected by the confusion. We have learned from our mistakes so that this can be avoided next year. Our goal is to work hard at continuously improving the Philadelphia Encampment and to avoid these challenges in the future.

Please plan to join us again at next years Philadelphia Encampment, which is scheduled for October 16-18, 2015 at Lighthouse Field.  To help us better serve you in future Philadelphia Encampments, we are asking all leaders to assist us by completing a short Post-Encampment Feedback Survey.

We are proud to serve Scouting with dedicated volunteers like you, and thank you for all of your work in developing the youth of Philadelphia to become outstanding citizens.

Yours in Scouting,

Ryan Murphy & Brian Wallace
