Jack Stibbs shared, “There were two summers that I worked during college at the Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch in Colorado…One Summer I was the head quartermaster in charge of ordering all food and supplies and getting it out to the troops. The next Summer, I was what they called a provisional scout master in charge of handling kids that were recruited from the inner city in Denver to show them the out of doors and the scouting ways. Both interesting gigs.” Stibbs said that these two summers had such a strong impact in his life, proving further that the Boys Scouts of America provides a program that builds character, trains and develops young people.
