Community Focus: Affordable summer camp

Jonathan Still has his work cut out for him - teaching his two sons life skills while working for the Boy Scouts of America's Frontier Council, preparing 12,000 young boys and girls through scouting in Oklahoma.

" For me, it's a ministry. Its a calling. I do work for the Boys Scouts but it goes beyond, that's an opportunity to positively impact the lives of kids," said Still.

Kids that may not have parents who are involved in their lives, or even the means to afford summer camp, but there's one camp here to save the summer, "Superhero Scouts Adventure on the River Day Camp". Its open to boys and girls 5 to 11 years old. Something Still's 10 year old son Jeremiah enjoys every year.

"I love all the camping we do and like hanging out with friends," said Cub Scout Jeremiah Still.

"Its been rewarding to not only see my sons in the program, but also see other kids who don't have a father figure, to have them involved and connected. It's a really wonderful thing," said Still.

The kids enjoy archery, fishing, and zip lining to name a few activities. Still says it's an opportunity to expose the youth to activities they wouldn't normally try.

"We believe in scouting for African Americans or kids of color, they get to see a world outside of the world they live in."

A world this " father son-duo" knows all too well through practice and song.
