Photo information

From the very beginning of the VirtualBoxwell blog, we have made an effort to note critical information about the photos we use. This included a “title” of the photo, who the photo belonged to, dimensions, and year. It is essential to the work that we do that this information be noted.

However, WordPress has updated to the point where this information is no longer publicly available. Previously, you could click on a photo and get the critical information we were providing. This is no longer possible.

So, going forward, we will provide this information as part of posting. If there is any photo in the Boxwell News blog that you would like to know the background on, please let us know. We will happily provide this information as we never intended it to not be public.

Site Updates, July 1, 2022

We made a few updates in the last couple of days.

First, the CubWorld Map was updated. We replaced Council Rock with Hackney Pavilion and corrected a showerhouse oversight. CubWorld only has two showerhouses. One is now designated as just for adults and one just for youth. Our map notes now reflect that reality and notes on each area now point to the nearest (relative) latrine instead of nearest showerhouse. Visit the CubWorld Map here:

Second, as we are now in the third quarter of the year, we have updated the banner image. Below is the original photo. As you can tell, we did a little editing to create a more visually pleasing image. In other words, we made it look better.

Boxwell History Presentations

Just a reminder: Grady Eades (the VirtualBoxwell guy) will be wrapping up his spring book tour on the history of Boxwell. These are the final presentations this spring, so now’s your chance to come see the show! There will be a presentation on the camp’s history with books for sale (and signing) afterward.
