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.

Scrapping old Memories; Making New
Scrapbooking for 3 days straight maysound like a weird form of torture... but even after the paper cuts, late nights, and reeeeally early mornings,I look forward toittwice a year. My familys crazy little tradition is called "Scrapbook Weekend". If youre anything like me; you have a busy schedule, a suffering photo album, talkative friends and family, and an endlessappetite for good cooking. Scrapbook Weekend givesme the chance to learn new layouts, trade materials, or just catch-up on all my photos. Twice a year, all my aunts and cousins (about 18-20 people total) drive to my moms house with cars full photos, paper supplies, and the fixin's for some great food. We load all the food in the fridge, spread out our cutters, paper, pictures and embellishments on about 6 or 7 Lifetime tables, and camp out for 3 days stacking page...

Win a Lifetime Garden Caddy
This giveaway had ended.Spring is finally starting to show up and give us hope for a warmer world! It's funny how by late Fall I am tired of yard work, but by Spring, I am itching to get out there and pull some weeds. Like for many of you, it seems to me that the yard projects never end. This season, we at Lifetime are excited to announce another innovative product to help you get those yard chores done. The Lifetime Garden Caddy. Here is how my typical time working in the yard is spent: I go to my Lifetime Shed and pull out my Lifetime Wheel Barrow. Then I climb, fall, and otherwise search for the tools I am going to need for my project throughout my shed. To carry them all to the worksite I put them in my wheel barrow usually losing the shovel or other tool along the way. Finally ready to work, I empty out the tools from t...
