I know there is a lot of information on the site. I know I have seen pictures and such of how to hang hammocks. Also, what better place to go to get advice than right here at this forum.
My situation: I was asked by a very good friend of mine to do 30 minute sessions on hammock camping for our county parks camporee on 30 April, 2011. I have some ideas of how to present it in 30 minutes to get the scouts interested and I would also like to give them something to take with them. Any ideas? I have also thought about purchasing a scout hammock but need to make sure the funds will allow it (we just had our seventh child). I will be hanging several different styles of hammocks for demo's and to let the scouts try out by laying in them.
How would you present to the scouts to get their interest?
What would you give them to take home? Flyer, pamphlet, etc.
Do you know any manufacturers that may donate a hammock for a giveaway?
Thanks for any advice you can give. After the camporee I will be sure to post pictures.
