Those qualified as charter members all know the origin of the Scion’s name, McMurdo’s Camp. (Details omitted here for reasons that should become apparent.) To find out more about McMurdo’s Camp and to become a member (either local or “cyber”) see the “McMurdo’s Camp – Join Up” page. There is no cost or obligation.
Without trying to be too cute, we often use the term “Camp” to refer to our organization and ourselves. For example, in many Scion Societies, members adopt a “Canonical Name”. We encourage our members to do the same, but we use the term “Camp Name”. Members of McMurdo’s Camp are known as “campers” (and if contented, winsome, and serene, possibly as “happy campers”). We maintain this trifling distinction as part of our organizational culture. Special recognition will be granted to any camper who comes up with a novel and interesting way to expand use of the term.
