Wifi at Camp and Unit Tech Policies

Posted on Updated on

As I have noted in the past, technology is changing the experience of scouting.

A constant debate among scouters is how to manage this change. This is decided at the unit level.

Some of troops forbid technology on outings. Some allow technology.

Which is the correct answer?

Only your PLC and troop committee can answer that question.

My recommendation is that this question should be reviewed annually by the PLC.

More and more troops are looking at technology as a good way to teach the Scout Law in practice.

One unit only allows technology to be used at camp for scouting related purposes.

Another allows it if it obeys the Scout Law: helpful, kind, etc.

Other units outright prohibit it. What do you think? Come comment on Facebook @CACNorthStarCommissioner.
