I’m a mom of two boys also and my kids have been online a lot this year and I’m ready to get them out back into nature and being kids again and doing all the fun things that kids normally do. So it feels really good for all of us, the camp staff is excited to welcome families here tomorrow,” CEO of the Hawkeye Area Council for Boy Scouts of America, Sarah Dawson says.
