1st Lt. David Richard Reynolds Camp, SCV, Mount Pleasant, Texas

 

Camp Commander's Training

The SCV has the minimum organization needed to be consistent with its long-term survival and adherence to its original goals. Each Camp makes most of the decisions necessary for its existence and to carry out its programs. The higher levels of the organization exist to assist the camps, to implement policy and to serve as a clearinghouse for ideas. Structurally, the organization is centered on the camp and its support with the other layers of responsibility.

Therefore, the Camp Commander is one of, if not the, most valuable member of this organization. Too many of our members hesitate to put their name in the hat to become the Camp Commander because they fill that they are not ready for the job, or simply that they don’t know exactly what all the job entails.

This training is broken down into the many different segments, attempting to give a short instruction on each task at hand.

The main thing to remember is that it is the Camp Commander’s option on exactly how each task will be completed. This training is only a suggestion and will point out the required steps.
