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.

National Night Out
Last night was a fun night in our neighborhood. We celebrated National Night Out. Apparently, most of the country celebrates this event in August. But, because of the summer heat, Texas officially moved its National Night Out to October 7. Plus, we all know, Texas just has to be different! :) The night is a national crime/drug prevention event designed to heighten community awareness and strengthen community spirit. San Antonio and outlying towns hosted various festivals and events last night. And, some individual subdivisions also hosted activities. Our subdivision celebrated by hosting a block party fully sponsored by our Homeowners Association. It was great we just RSVPd and showed up for a yummy dinner and chance to mingle with our neighbors! A free night out of the kitchenwhoo-hoo! Our subdivision is made up of only 64...
Win a Lifetime Adjustable Soccer Goal
This giveaway has ended. Riddle of the day: Which Lifetime product is 8ft tall yet can easily fit in the trunk of a car? Well, actually, it was yesterday's riddle. We posted this riddle on our Facebook page and said if you could figure it out, we'd give the product away. Lucky for you, some (actually a lot) of our fans figured it out! Although we do make 8' tables that fold-in-half to fit in a trunk, technically, they are 8ft long rather than tall. Same with our kayaks. (Although that would need to be a really big trunk!) And, obviously, the Lifetime 8' sheds can't fit in a trunk. So, that leaves the Lifetime 8' x 6' Folding Soccer Goal. Fall soccer season is here (and Christmas is only two months away) so we are giving away a Lifetime 8' x 6' Adjustable Soccer Goal which conveniently folds for easy transportation and sto...
