A Camper's Ten Commandments

 

Thou shalt do thy share and more;

Thou shalt keep thy sense of humor;

Thou shalt do thy camp duties to the best of thy ability;

Thou shalt not cry over burnt food;

Thou shalt treat other people as you would wish them to treat you;

Thou shalt not pollute or destroy;

Thou shalt not giggle all night;

Thou shalt not forget about personal cleanliness;

Thou shalt spread thy friendship to someone new;

Thou shalt listen to thy leaders, for they are wise in the ways of making camp a happy time for everyone.
