Did you ever make the trek back to that old camp?
I did last year. It was sooooo cool. I was just amazed at all the things I felt.
No, that's not something I have done yet, but it's on my agenda. I have wanted to deal with other issues and this one was pretty painful, since the Scout camp we always went to was the scene for so much of my abuse and many sad memories.
That said, I have been trying - with some success - to separate the abuse from Scouting as a whole, and that has decontaminated many of my memories of Scout trips and fun with friends.
Thanks - your post reminds me of some unfinished business!
