Boy Scouts Hit Black Gold

Posted on 16 February 2012 by ScoutingNewsStaff

Every camp and council throughout the country could use an extra $10,000 a month. Camp Teetonkah in Jackson County, Michigan is providing just that. The 220-acre camp was found to have oil and the Great Sauk Trail Council will begin to extract it in an environmentally sustainable way. It is a great opportunity to teach Scouts environmental science, caring for and preserving nature while utilizing its benefits.

    I have mixed feelings about this. It’s great for the council’s financials, but I don’t think I would want to an oil well in camp. I guess it depends on how it looks and/or smells.
