In lieu of not being able to sign in to do the survey I have to say this.

Hidden Valley was the first camp I ever went to in my whole entire live. Not having g...rown up with boy scouts and having the wonderful experience, Hidden Valley was great as a first timer.
This year, our troop went to Bashore which is right near Indian Town Gap, PA. The first day impressions weren't as great. However as the days went on the pros and cons became clearer.
Tents: the platforms are shorter so you can't stack your locker box in front of the cot. However, they are wider to give you and your buddy you bunk with amble space. The box goes either below the cot or somewhere outside.
The cots at Bashore are the traditional army style with no springs. As a result I was more tired and didn't get up as early as I did at Hidden Valley.
The food was somewhat better but I heard comments that they weren't kid friendly enough.
The dining hall was nice. However, I preferred the family style meals over Bashore's cafeteria style service. The portions are small even so you always can get seconds. The main building is too overfilled so that the only way to get back to your table is by navigating the narrow aisle between you and your tray and the people waiting in line.

What i missed was the more military style colors and role call which did not exist at all at Bashore. The programs were great (based on leaders) and that was a plus for Bashore. All in all, I miss Hidden Valley.
