I Survived the Camp Cornhusker Bug Out
Okay, so today’s SR: Scouting isn’t exactly a comic, but it is something I designed for Scouts. I have been attending Camp Cornhusker for 18 years (which, among other things, inspired certain comics) and have been on staff for 12 years. Yet, without fail, there is a new experience waiting for me every year. This year, one of those new experiences happened to be a camp-wide evacuation. We had major storms coming into the area (and a surprising amount of advance notice!) and the decision was made to move camp to Humboldt-Table-Rock-Steinauer (HTRS) High School, located about 11 miles north, for the night. Good thing too, as we had a tornado within a mile of camp that night! The whole operation went remarkably smoothly; the camp leadership and the Scouts themselves deserve a lot of credit for making this happen so effectively. The Scoutmasters approached the camp leadership about getting commemorative T-shirts for the first known evacuation, so I volunteered to head that up and came up with this design (not my first time designing a T-shirt; maybe I could turn this into a business if I had time…). If you come down to camp next year, watch for these shirts! Also, all proceeds from these shirts will go toward constructing a storm shelter on the camp property.
The camp was featured on the news; you can check it out here.
