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 Chairs on CSI:NY!
I may not be quite as sharp as the CSI team, but my keen eyes did spot several Lifetime tables and chairs onlast week's CSI:NY "Turbulence" episode! (A rerun BTW.) Some companies pay BIG bucks to get ideal product placement (meaning actually using or showing the product) in movies and TV shows. You know, like how all the American Idol judges have a giant Coca-Cola cup sitting in front of them every show!? But, sometimes, a company is fortunate enough to have its product used just because it is the ideal product for a scene. I'm always watching the background shots of various shows, especially home improvement shows, to see if they use Lifetime tables. Every once in a while, I catch a glimpse of one. But, the foldingtables and chairs in this CSI: NYepisode were pretty hard to miss. Well, for me anyway.You probably wouldn't n...

Questions to Ask Yourself Before Buying A Folding Table
When purchasing a folding table, you may think that all you need is a basic structure with a flat surface, four legs, and the ability to fold flat. In some cases, you may be right, right? I think about tables and chairs a lot. Every day I talk with our Lifetime Tables and Chairs team about corner impact, leg locking mechanisms, channeling, leg deployment, and lots of other details that will make you stop reading this. All this knowledge has made me a firm believer that a very durable table with safety and convenience features will pay off in the long run. Do you remember the "old" folding tables? Let me jog your memory-- they were wooden, heavy, and clumsy. I remember carrying heavy tables made of wood or metal, with sharp metal edges below the table top that cutmy fingers. If you were alive in the 1990's and earlierand I a...
