Winter Camp XXXIV celebrated the 100th anniversary of the BSA by compressing 100 years of history into the first four days of camp. Each day commemorated a quarter-century with period-specific events and atmosphere.

Winter Camp XXXIV had a "Back to the Future" theme tied to the 100th anniversary of Scouting. Campers were sent back to 1910 by an anomaly in the time stream on the first day and then worked to advance the timeline about 20 years each day of camp until the camp culminated in their return to 2010.

As always new activities and meals fought for the spotlight against perennial favorites. New activities for the year included Behind Enemy Lines, WWI Flour Wars (inspired by Follow Me Boys), Prohibition, McCarthyism, Fire Skills, the Showdown, launching the Sputnik, Find the Terrorist, and constructing Nuclear Survival Shelters.

We also had new meals like the Polish Buffet, Stylish Seafood, Working Mom Lunch, Mom and Apple Pie dinner, False Dilemma lunch, Back of the Box dinner, and the blowtorch snack.

Among the renamed events were the Casino Snack and Casino night, which were renamed to Speakeasy and the Prohibition Snack, and several variations on outdoor games like capture the objective.

Arrowmen left with the sure knowledge that the next year they visited would be 2011 and that Winter Camp would be back for its 35th installment with Steve Donohue and Josh Cicotte at the helm.
