  1. During an LDS Camp at Camp Shands a few years ago a Scout was having a hard time. The Scout felt like he was being bullied and the other Scouts accused this young man of “bringing it on himself”. Two young men were nice enough to spend the day mentoring this young person while providing two deep leadership. They did nothing special except spend time with him and others in their circle and all of the Scouts had a great experience.
