While most people are relaxing with family and friends this July 4th, hundreds of boys are working hard to earn merit badges in the Northwoods.

Camp Tesomas is one of the biggest and best boy scout camps in the country. At least that's what the scouts say.

Troops from all over the country travel to Pine Lake to work on badges, character development and leadership skills.

But it's not all hard work, the kids say it a great place to have fun and meet friends. The boys say they'll take the lessons they learned at camp this week back to their troops in the fall.

Most of the staff are scouts who used to go to Tesomas for camp. This is the 67th summer for the scout camp.
