Camping, Camping and a Salute to BSA

Anyone who works with a youth group knows that summer camp is one event that’s looked forward to all year, and slightly feared by most adult leaders. Whether it’s a group of giggling girls or rambunctious boys, the ideal summer camp has enough to do to keep everyone busy. Joe attended the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) owned Camp Kiesel, and told me a little about his trip. Nestled in Utah’s mountains above Causey Reservoir, The camp offers excellent programs geared towards Cub Scouts and Webelos. The camp teaches archery, wrist-rockets (aka "slingshots"), outdoorsmanship, physical fitness, boating/canoeing, and even a BB rifle range. Although individuals are required to pack their own lunches, the camp offers a large area of Lifetime Picnic Tables…The perfect place to relax, share stories, and for camp leaders, taking a much needed rest from the day's activities!

Lifetime Tables contain powder-coated metal and plastic components that are easy to clean, and very long lasting -- making them a perfect choice for the tough conditions of a mountain camp and for your back yard.

My own girls camp experience at BSA’s Camp Hunt, on the wooded shore of Utah’s Bear Lake, was more humorous than anything. After 2 days of bug bites, sunburns, 5 a.m. nature hikes, and chasing girls from activity to activity, we got a welcome break gathering at the fire pit to watch skits put on by the Boy Scouts and camp staff. In one of their funniest skits, a thief was showing his apprentice how to steal a wallet from a sleeping man… sleeping on a Lifetime 4’ adjustable fold-in-half table. I’ll admit… I was a little nervous as he theatrically tossed and turned repeatedly on the lightweight table, scaring the thief. He shook the table back and forth, but it never started to fold, lean, or tip over. I later saw the same table being used at the waterfront, and other than a layer of dirt, it looked great.

Lifetime Card Table Comparison
A few months ago, I posted some photos to show you a comparison of the size of Lifetime chairs to a typical folding chair. So, today, I thought I'd go ahead and show you how a Lifetime Card Table compares to a typical card table. First of all, what you may not realize, without having two card tables to compare side-by-side, is that a typical card table is 34" square while the Lifetime card table is actually 37". As you can see by the photo, this provides quite a bit of extra useable surface area. This extra space certainly comes in handy when I seat four people around the table to eat, piece together large puzzles, and more. And, don't worry, the table is still lightweight and easy to carry at just 19lbs. Speaking of weightthe Lifetime card table is engineered for superior strength and durability. In fact, the Lifetime card...
